Life West Coast Private Hospital - Shipwreck Year end Function - MYKONOS - LANGEBAAN

My first thoughts were "how on earth am i going to transform the Marina Deck at Mykonos into a island with a Shipwreck theme.  We have done it with careful planning and with the extra props provided by the staff  at Life hospital we did pull it off.
The one wall has a sunset on a island. The Pirates Parrot, a treasure chest with fake gold, swords and golden beads with beautiful plants to create the island atmosphere.   Above the dance area were seagulls in swarms tangled in fish nets and we even have a ships sail on the one side created the feeling of a deserted island where a ships wreck was found.   The shipwrecks wheel were there and with lots of empty bottles and palm trees, bridges and wine barrels you really feel i am on a deserted island.
The table setting we keep simple and choose black table cloths, brown under plates and an unusual centrepiece.  A fruit arrangement that guest could eat. I have done a hollow watermelon filled with nice freshly cut fruit cubes on ice surrounded with pineapples, apples, grapes, peaches and to round off it all a empty wine bottle with overflowing candlewax and a candle.  We even put a few gold coins in between the fruit.
Hundreds of fairylights tie it all together and with the themed dressed staff of Life Hospital we have create a funfilled atmosphere where they dance the night away.
