Lavatory Levity

You've seen the lobby florals of AIFD's 2011 Symposium, now you will see how the restroom decorations during the gala night gave new meaning to nature's call. This post is a bit out of sequence, but I had the urge to write this now. 

Michelle Perry White, AIFD was the designer responsible for all the decor on the final night of the convention. Michelle tapped Susan Standerfer, AIFD and  Susie Overton Ayala as the team to decorate the restrooms. They did a magnificent job interpreting the night's theme: Flourish! 

They used mechanics that I always hesitated to use because I had no idea if they would be fool proof. Originally designed to stick on car windows for flower parades, the team chose Oasis suction cup holders to decorate the mirrors.

 My new best friend Robert, learned that they proved to be easy to install...

The team went above the call of duty to beautify the otherwise stark room.

Every stall was decorated with a wreath.

When it came to decorating the sinks, they left no stone unturned...

As magnificent as the ladies' room looked, everyone was abuzz over the men's room. They outdid themselves in here...

I will refrain from making reference to the orbs hanging about the room.
