James Trigg Hover 36th Australian Dental Conference Luncheon: The client wanted to transform the room into a secret garden to create a mystical setting for their luncheon. It was great to bring the outside in! My favourite elements were the garden fountain, suspended bamboo basket floral centrepieces, and gold Tiffany chairs. Most importantly, our client was extremely happy with the look!

So I tied an onion to my belt, which was the style at the time. Now, to take the ferry cost a nickel, and in those days, nickels had pictures of bumblebees on ’em. Give me five bees for a quarter, you’d say

Favourite Prop. The ship’s wheel. It looks good and it’s functional (a bit like me), and is one of the first things I made at The Prop House. We recently installed it into the Starlight Express room and the kids in there loved it. I dare anyone to walk past it and not want to give it a spin.

The Lend Lease event at the John Reid Pavilion at RNA involved a simple concept with wooden pallets to make a stunning feature wall. It is always nice to build something out of a simple every day product.

My favourite set up was the Spring Vintage Market at Indooroopilly. Rustic bars, floral fabric, vintage peacock chairs, moss and fresh flowers – all my favourites!

Operations…knowing you’ll never be able to have nice nails or a manicure. -Retracted, you can…but you end up ripping off most of your nail and that’s no fun!
