Behind the Curtain: Oscar ATC BD Party with Assiya Babayeva

Dear Toastmasters!

I’d like to greet everyone in spring. As you know, February was full of events: ATC Bowling Tournament, Macedonian Day, my B’day :) and finally ATC Birthday party! The topic of the party was chosen easily but on the other hand took pretty long time. We, girls, definitely wanted such a topic that would allow us to wear a gorgeous dress, put glamorous make-up and see our gentlemen in brilliant suits. Thus the alternatives of the topic were ‘White party’, ‘Music awards’ etc. ‘Let’s organize an Oscar party’ idea suddenly stroke our minds and only after this we realized that real Oscar award ceremony was coming.

Luckily, all ATC members are extremely active and visit various events apart from ATC. So we started to brainstorm and highlighted lots of awesome ideas. At the beginning, the scenario was quite chaotic and reminded the ‘vinaigrette salad’. But later on it turned into truly thematic party devoted to cinema, Hollywood and all this stuff. Moreover, we tried to recreate the atmosphere of the award by bringing an Oscar statue (almost 2 meter-tall), a red carpet, popcorn and many other details that contributed to the whole idea.

Overall, for anyone who wants to organize social events for ATC or any other organization, my recommendations will be absolutely banal, but these are the basics:

– get everything prepared in advance;

– try to recruit more members;

– rehearse at least some parts which might go wrong…

A separate big ‘thank you’ goes to Anuar, Mr. President for helping us with decoration!

Another person who is shy but is able to do men’s work is Tana. Bakery isn’t only sweet and honey, it is also painful and hard ))

Zhanna, thank you so much for your initiative on making a beautiful musical performance for the party! Thanks to everyone who performed that night! Btw you can watch it here.

Damira, you are the best PR ever 😉 Her sister made for us the awards – Oscar statues! They were beautiful!

Sogdiana, thanks for reporting and photo shooting each step…

And little thanks to the presenters of that evening: Korlan Bektassova and me, Assiya Babayeva.

March, we are anticipating new portion of mood, joy and communication!

Assiya
