2013 Festival of Flowers

Oyster Roast 

UNCW Watson School of Education 

Stellar Events' final event of the week was the Oyster Roast designed by the talented Matthew Robbins and Fiore Fine Flowers!  Due to some weather issues we had to change the location of the event last minute, but we were lucky enough to be able to use the beautiful Watson School of Education on the campus of UNCW.  

This building is a beautiful construction with high vaulted ceilings, huge glass windows, exposed metal beams and a beautiful stone floor.  The feel inside was as if you were outside on the street!  There were permanent fixtures on the main floor that were "education" related including old classroom desks and school bus seats which added extra stress trying to figure out how to hide them or work them into the design.  However, in the end everyone pulled together and the venue was transformed into a southern chic oyster roast and BBQ!  

The nights entertainment was provided by the talented Jack Jack 180 and they kept the party rockin' until the end!  Here are a few of our favorite pictures from the evening!!
