It was a night to remember that’s for sure. Last week, we had one of those great nights that sticks with you. We joined up in Charlotte at The Blake Hotel (gorgeous!) for the 2012 ISES EVIE Awards; we came together, dressed in our finest Steampunk garb, laughed, danced and mingled the night away with friends in the event industry.
Sterling By Design had the privilege of being a decor sponsor for the night and we really let that creativity flow playing up the Steampunk theme for the event titled “The Future of Yesterday”. Our very own Helen Apple, chairwoman for the event, was the brainchild behind the concept.
Equally as cool, our contract event prop welder, Katherine Apple (yes, that’s Helen’s sister) created the incredible awards to tie-in with the eclectic theme.
But best yet – we won! Not once, not twice, but six times! “Best Of” awards were handed out for our work throughout the Carolinas for corporate, social and wedding events! We’re still giddy as we type…

We also entered the Tabletop Design Contest for the evening where we were challenged to create a tablescape representing the event’s theme. Here’s a peek at ours… which was the People’s Choice Winner!
The competition was stiff. We have some talented industry peers in the Carolinas that’s for sure. We’re ecstatic, humbled and oh so grateful to be recognized among them.
Did we already say how estatic we are? ‘Cause by the way, we’re still smiling…
Now it’s on to next year!
