The Mad Hatter’s Ball benefiting the American Cancer Society took place August 7th at the Fayetteville Town Center. This was the first gala for the ACS in Northwest Arkansas in 5 years, and the goal was to get this event off to a good start for future years. It was lots of fun! I was recruited for the planning committee several months ago. It was a lot of hard work, but it went really well and everyone had lots of fun! There was food, drinks, live and Silent Auction items and Boom Kinetic rocked the house from 9 till midnight.
We had several area florists put their talents to work on centerpieces and they all looked amazing! This one By Candy Bouquet featuring Designs by Suzanna was one of my favorites.

I like the backlighting in this picture even though there is not a lot of detail.
I left the shutter open a little longer on this one to get a sense of movement.
Make plans to come join us next year in early August for another great event!
