Follow – up “1001 nights” New Year Party 24 December 2017

Dear Friends,

As it is known New year is considered as a Family holiday and we are happy that you celebrated this wonderful and miracle holiday with us, as Astana Toastmasters Club is a family for all of us!

Celebrating the holiday and enjoying the party with friends are always interesting and exciting, but in fact more memorable is the process of preparation to the party. Now we want to share with you some interesting moments from behind the curtains!

Let’s give a great applause to the people who kindly supported us with organization. Personally, big thanks to Embassador of Islamic Republic Iraq Mr. Younis Sarhan, who provided us with the main decoration items in Arabic style that gave us the feelings as if we were in Eastern fairytale.

Organization of any events required planning. Almost three weeks before the date of ATC New Year was a first meeting of organizing team.
One of main goal of this meeting is a concept of event. Following functions:
1) Content
2) Entourage
3) Food&Beverage
4) Venue/Setup
5) Finance
6) Logistics

Challenge for organization team is communication. Because timing in workdays are limited but cooperation and coordination went well and it helped to avoid any unforeseen circumstances.
Arabic thematic “1001 nights “provides various ideas how to make this event successfully. Based on diversity of the theme our event was in colorful tones, Arabic music or music about “1000 and one nights”, delicious food and charisma from Serob and Baurzhan.

Content of event consisted of the following colourful and entertaining concurses:

1) Poem battle aka Omar Hayam style
2) Team work. Example“ What if Aladdin date Shahrazad”/ team shoud make a play of it
3) Sultan’s dance by wonderful Anar and Aigerim
4) Who wants to be a 1001 tenge winner. Reference to Who wants to be a millionaire hosted by Alisher (literary I was on phone with him late night to prepare this one)
5) Lip sync battle
Each winner received a memorable and eastern style gifts

Traditionally some guests were late but we started barely in time. Around 30 people were hyped and enjoyed whole process. Selfie room was popular am26229312_1498170493569545_2689223929802813517_nong girls, so all the pictures of this event you can find on ATC Facebook page
