It took a splinter attack, almost dropping an enormous table on Lester’s body and a ton of balloons to help me realize that public relations goes beyond news releases and social media usage. Dancing Through The Decades was my first taste of hardcore event planning and it was quite the experience.
It all started at 1 pm on April 25, 2012. The cake balls were ready and the team was running around hectically trying to decorate and go over our event positions. We were up to our necks in our to-do list throughout the entirety of the big day. Team BluePRint had to set everything up for the mocktail and beverage section, food, silent auction and raffle ticket area. There is no doubt that we made the best out of the Dunham School gymnasium and I was very proud of my team for our hard work and dedication.
In public relations, you must always be prepared when it comes to event planning. Schedules, lists and plans are the key ingredients when organizing an event. It takes flexibility, team work and comfortable shoes when ensuring an event’s on point in the planning process. Team BluePRint utilized immense organization proficiency, demonstrated exceptional communication skills and turned a high school gymnasium into one hell of a ball considering our time and resources.
Overall, I would say our event was a success. All of our stress, conflict and confusion ended up benefiting and motivating us to do our absolute best. Each group member did a fantastic job in keeping cool, calm and collected while improvising and making the best out of our situation. Marcus did a great job juggling mocktails, soft drinks and charm. Mom and dad rocked those clipboards and were amazing at keeping everything together. Taylor was one mean Vanna White and worked fabulously with event attendees. Haley and I showed that silent auction and raffle ticket section who is boss. I am very satisfied with our success!
