When told the theme was white for this event, we understood the assignment.
On October 21 from 12pm to 4pm, En Blanc Long Lunch took over the National Wine Centre for an afternoon of food, drink and fun, all for a good cause.
The event was held by Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) SA to raise funds to support sick children and their families.
SNAP/SNAP was there on the day to capture cherished memories and make them last forever.
When attendees arrived on the day, they were greeted with a garland of white balloons outlining the doors and setting the scene for what they would find ahead.
Through the doors, tables upon tables topped with green and white flowers filled the dining room while attendees roamed and mingled throughout.
Taking the event theme very seriously, guests dressed in all shades of white and glistened through the room, as South Australian pop band and trio of sisters, Germain, sound tracked the afternoon with acoustic tunes.

With the event inviting guests to 'share a meal for families in need’, they indulged in a delicious three course lunch. They could also partake in a silent virtual auction, where artwork painted by a child from the RMHC was sold for $5,500.
Heading outside to the patio was a sunny extension of within.
A cocktail bar topped with champagne glasses and dotted with bartenders lined the outside space. It welcomed guests to cocktails of gin sours, greyhounds, mojitos and more, while there was also a Bird in Hand Sparkling Bar offering guests a chance to win diamond earrings.

With glasses in hands and smiles of laughter, attendees made their way to our SNAP/SNAP photobooth.
In theme with the glamour of the event, we set up our GLAMBOOTH which fit the event perfectly. Producing exclusively black and white images, the GLAMBOOTH snapped the charm and magic of the afternoon.

We went with a minimalistic design print to fit inline with the other design elements of the afternoon and bring a focus to the stars of the event - the guests.
The print featured the En Blanc Long Lunch and Ronald McDonald House logos, while the touch screen mimicked the key elements of the event itself being white and bordered with hints of leaves and flowers.

Pictures were printed on the spot for guests to take home; meanwhile, digital copies were available from the next day through the online gallery, and they were also emailed so the snaps could be shared and treasured long after the event wrapped up.
