Forces of Nature Fundraising Event 2016We Color Our World Pink!Bakery Square Pittsburgh, PA

Just in case you haven’t seen it yet, today we are throwing it back to March of 2016 when we collaborated on a pink-tastic play room with none other than the ladies of {SHE}. We helped to create this pink wonderland at Bakery Square for Event Pros Take Actions’ amazing fundraising event, Forces of Nature, which benefits victims of natural disasters. Mosaic, Marbella, Gray Phoenix, Bella Christiez Sweet Boutique, Loree Mayer Design, and even local artists Ashley Cecil and Jay Flores all came together to help create this magic. We would like to extend a very special thank you to our floral sponsor Mayesh Wholesale for keeping us in pretty blooms for this and all of our fabulous events! This playful pink paradise was beautifully captured by Lauren Renee of Lauren Renee Designs.


This statement ribbon ceiling was quite the undertaking! We custom built a frame for it and cut and attached thousands of ribbon strands, hanging flowers, and crystals to the frame to create this graduated look.

Our pink play world wouldn’t be complete without a sparkly pink piano draped in lush blooms.






Bella Christiez Sweet Boutique created all of these pretty desserts for guests to enjoy while they played checkers, tic-tac-toe, and jenga.



This sliding puzzle board was custom created using Ashley Cecil’s artwork. Marbella took Ashley’s design and printed it on these big vinyl stickers for this larger than life puzzle. Marbella can custom print just about anything on their various rental pieces to create a truly unique and branded event and we can’t get enough!

Marbella also custom printed Ashley’s work and applied it to the tables throughout the room. We love Ashley’s work and were so thrilled to have her on board for Forces of Nature.


Here’s Jay Flores live painting that pink piano. He is so talented and his live artwork is a unique, entertaining addition to any event!
