For the first official event of 2015, I had the honor and privilege of designing and coordinating a 30th Anniversary Celebration for LuAnn Miller, the Executive Director of the Isla Vista Youth Projects (www.ivyp.org). To capture the bold, colorful history and culture of Isla Vista, we chose to have a Boho-Chic Cocktail party with vibrant color patterns and eclectic furniture and decor. UCSB generously donated the use of the Mosher Alumni House, a modern industrial venue that has several unique spaces and rooms. The front patio featured a lounge with Edison Lighting, Indian Couches, and a bold, colorful palette.
Guests were greeted with local wines and craft beers as an acoustic guitarist played. As guests progressed through the venue, they were entertained by a gourmet grilled cheese station by Omni Catering, a photo booth, and a spread of local, organic produce and appetizers from the Isla Vista Food Co-op, and a beautiful three-tiered cake from Sunny's Delights. We had the honor of hosting several local dignitaries and nonprofit leaders who came to honor the incredible Legacy of LuAnn Miller and her 30 years of life-changing service to the community of Isla Vista and greater Santa Barbara. It was an honor and a joy to be a part of this special occasion!
