Real Estate Institute of the ACT

Fire & Ice Awards Dinner 2017

Client Relationship

We have worked with the Real Estate Institute of the ACT since 2015. 

This client loves to have a different theme and create a completely different look each year. 

We love collaborating together and proposing different options for each theme.


The Brief

To create a Fire & Ice theme within the room with the use of centrepieces and table linen.

The client was also keen to seperate the two sides of the room into the 2 different looks.  Stage right to be ice and stage left to be fire.

Proposed Concepts

For this client we started with a few different options, some of which were:

  • White willow in vases for the ice tables and red spider orchids in vases for the fire side.

  • Glass artworks that we were to have commissioned through the Canberra Glass works. Half the room would be lit red and the other half blue.

  • Tall acrylic pieces that would sit atop light boxes and be lit from below. The fire side would include red and frosted pieces while the ice side would be blue and frost. This option would come with large matching pieces to be placed either side of stage.

  • Chair covers of white with blue bows for Ice and black with red bows for fire. 

  • We also suggested the client request white tablecloths for the ice side and black for the fire side from the venue as we knew that this venue stocked both options.


Below are images of the glass centrepiece option we suggested.  We commission one piece to be made so that we could show the client a real prototype.


The client chose to proceed with the acrylic centrepiece option so we put together a design and contracted a local plastics supplier to have the different pieces made.  Once we had all of the different components we played around with the best combinations to create elegant, organic looking centrepieces. 

Finished Product

The final product saw the room divided into one side as Fire and the other as Ice.  The tables were set with black or white cloths as per our suggestion and we set up matching chair linen to add to the effect of the two sides of the room. 

Our amazing acrylic centrepieces were a feature on each table and the stage set pieces helped to finish off the overall room look.

The client was delighted with the room look and even sent us a lovely gift hamper as a thank you for our work on the event.
