{event showcase} Office Space Graduation Party

How do you celebrate a techie's transistion from college to career?  With an Office Space Graduation Party!

If you are unfamiliar with Office Space, it's a comedy movie about the miserable life of a computer programmer. Most people remember that Jennifer Aniston is in it. Anyway ... the Graduate received his degree in Electrical Engineering and was about to embark on his professional career so I designed the party, on my clients' behalf, to poke a little fun at his next endeavor!

Here are the highlights:

Did you get the memo?!

Office Desk bar ...

...made complete with a Paper Jam,

Red Swingline stapler,

and [Chotchies] flair!

As well as a water cooler,

custom water bottle wraps,

and custom cocktail napkins!

Food included chips and guacamole (sans strychnine)

mouth-watering smoked ribs, pulled chicken sandwiches and so much more!  The BBQ aroma was fantastic!

To entertain guests, there were executive office toys ... decision dartboard, zen garden and

an affirmation ball!  You're Good Enough!

Music played from my client's iPod.  I suggested inserting a snippet of When a Man Loves a Woman every few songs.

The Ratio of People to Cake is Too Big.  A quote straight from the movie! Cake provided by my client.

Thank you for reviewing my posh party!  Please let me know if I've inspired your celebrations.
