Chicka-Fandango Productions Relaunches as Revolution Event Design With a Blowout Bash
From grannies to goats, it was one wild night.
Where can you find baby goats, a tattoo parlor, and grannies, all together? Try the Fandango Productions and Chicka Chicka Boom Boom relaunch event as their newly merged and rebranded event design and production company, Revolution.
On Thursday night, Revolution Event Design and Production threw a massive relaunch party at their new headquarters in Baltimore. The 100,000-square-foot warehouse was filled with a maze of mini parties, each with their own theme, caterers, and florists from the DMV area. Invitations were sent out, advertising the theme “Tattoos and Tassels” and proclaiming the event “the party of the year” and asking invitees to see “how the party people party.” And from what we could see, the party people party hard.
You know you’re getting yourself into trouble when you’re handed a map upon entering a party–any event that requires its own map is sure to be an assault on the senses. And that’s exactly what this overblown warehouse event was–the night began with a room decked out with floral creations by Sweet Root Village, followed by a trip down a hallway to the tattoo lounge, where Have Fun Be Lucky tattoo parlor was set up to ink guests with the image of their choice. Following the tattoo bar was a free-for-all trip through the maze–here’s where the map came in handy–filled with different themed strips sponsored by local vendors, including a voodoo bar, a silent disco, a truth or dare bar, a “Who’s Your Granny” gameshow-style party game, and a Tuscan-themed room that included a wine bar and real baby goats.
Many bridal vendors’ handiwork was on display at the event, so start day dreaming about your bachelorette parties, bridal showers, and wild receptions as you browse the photos of last night’s festivities below.
