Casa Bella’s Halloween is a monster success!

Casa Bella’s Halloween is a monster success!

It’s the day after the night before… and what a night! After more than 3 months of planning, Casa Bella’s Halloween took place last night, and I have to say that when I set about designing the concept, I couldn’t have wished for such a successful conclusion to the evening.  Success being judged by the […]

Casa Bella’s Halloween; the nightmare before Christmas

So, it’s the day before Casa Bella’s Halloween but it feels oddly like the night before Christmas! Although, I guess a more apt depiction would be, the day before the show; finally, after more than 3 months in the making (or rehearsal), Casa Bella’s Halloween is here,  and what an event it will be. Who […]

Dark skies are upon us as preparations commence

The clocks will be changing soon which means the […]

Casa Bella announces Halloween 2011 spooktacular! but that’s not all….

That’s right, the 29th October 2011 has been announced as the provisional date for Casa Bella’s next major event.  We toyed with multiple ideas and themes and came up with a few that we believed would work very well but there’s only so much time. The ideas will keep.  We figured that  Halloween, at least in […]

Tears, Tantrums & Trophies; Casa Bella’s HOIME Awards are a revelation

Okay, so maybe there weren’t  any tantrums, not unless you count the incident where it was 19:29 (with official start at 19:30 and some guests already waiting) and I discovered that the gate through which they were supposed to enter to walk  the red carpet was SCREWED shut and not ‘cable tied’ as I had believed! […]

Less than 9 days until Casa Bella’s HOIME awards. The heat is on!

Okay maybe not but Casa Bella’s HOIME Awards ‘a la Oscars’ has got to be right up there with one of  the most glamorous, if not […]
