And when the guy sent e a photo of the color scheme he wanted to work from, that in addition to the type of design, I thought that I was going to scream!! and that there would be no way I could pull this off. But then my partner reminded me that this was THEIR theater, not OUR theater and it opened my mind up to all of the possibilities. Now, I'm having a ball working on this project!! And cant wait for the client's to see the final product of "my" work!!
Also, to help a little...I had one of the top designers in the area tell me that the BEST designers are the ones that can pull off ANY style and make it look as if they loved doing it. Even if they hated it.
yea! i sure hope i can pull of the design and people will say that!
i was saying that to my husband last night. i thought about the fact that no matter what diff in our tastes were I'm going to give them all the options and have them informed...but still make their cake the best of my abilities!
reminds me of doing a red, white, and blue cake last summer...didn't think i could pull it off...but i did, they loved it and now it's one of my favorite cakes!
