As you know, I’m on the committee for the Anime club at my University.
And on the night of Friday, 23rd of September, we held a ‘Social Night’ which is pretty much a formal night of pretty dresses, stunning suits, good food, lots of fun, and awards amongst lots of good friends! ♥
On the night, the committee got there earlier and decorated the place.
As you can see in the above photo, table decorations consisted of alternating twig lights and decorations. The committee table had orange/yellow LED lights whilst the rest of the tables had blue~ish ones. On each table there were crystals, LED candle lights and individual name tags! And the entire room was filled with silver and balloons.
Entree: (L) Extra virgin Marinated beef salad with Feta, Baby cos, Spanish onion and Cherry tomatoes and (R) Wood smoked duck breast with tomato chutney and a duck liver & mandarin pate.
Main: (L) Slowly Braised Lamb shank in a rich ragout, served on creamy mash with seasonal vegetables and (R) Roasted supreme of chicken Breast set upon creamy mash with seasonal vegetables in a pool of cup mushroom ragout.
Dessert: (L) Zesty Lemon tart served with fresh-whipped cream and berry compote and (R) Sticky-Date pudding, served warm with vanilla bean ice cream, toffee sauce, donned with a caramel shard.
Planning this event was definitely an experience for myself.
You’d think that these events are as simple as choosing the menu and buying some balloons. But no, having to cater for different groups of people and their different tastes, all within a budget is actually really not as easy as you’d think it’d be. But I’m actually really glad that I was able to be a part of something like this; and to help shape/mould how the night would turned out in the end! Even if it meant getting no hardly any sleep prior to it~
I’d just like to say a quick thank you to the rest of the committee for being a bunch of awesome friends, making the night wonderful, and for putting up with my picky/demanding orders~ !
