A Red Letter Day sponsored and booked Sophie B Hawkins’ recent East Coast tour of Australia. This very fine artist brought the house down at Mardi Gras Fair Day, The Basement, The Palais (VIC), Moorilla Estate (TAS) and the Canberra Southern Cross Club (ACT) and more. Sophie’s internet blog during the tour read:’Thanks to Clare and Denny Burgess, we're not done with this tour yet, and I hope this is the beginning of an annual reunion for us, you both are rare gems to work with.’

Australian Songwriters Association National Awards Night:

Organised on a strict budget for this non-profit organisation, a sensational evening was achieved. The stylishly revamped surrounds of the Gaelic Club in Sydney, were highlighted by a myriad candles and crisp damask tablecloths decorated with the modern look of loose flowers.

Against this glamorous background, the crème of Australia's songwriters performed their winning compositions on a large stage with top-class sound. The excitement also ran to the food, which embraced a popular Asian theme that included sushi, rice-paper rolls and crisp Vietnamese bread with exotic fillings. Drinks flowed, and sweet desserts were a delectable inclusion.
In tune with the youth emerging from the ranks of talented songwriters, an 'edgy' young comedienne provided entertainment. An audio-visual display and a professional MC conducting table games, kept guests on their toes. Music industry VIPs were sourced as Presenters, and songwriting icon Buzz Bidstrup was interviewed as Special Guest.

The lineup, printed programs, equipment hire, advertising and ticketing were included in A Red Letter Day's preparation of this event.

Wedding of Mr and Mrs L & L Terry:

In planning this exquisite event, A Red Letter Day worked with the bride's passion for the delicious softness and fashionability of feathers, and a beautiful, sensual theme emerged. It began with a tall 'Moulin Rouge' style, white ostrich feather headpiece for the bride, and glorious felt hats boarded with speckled osprey for the bridesmaids.

Guests were given a clue to the feel of the day with small clusters of white feathers adorning the pews. The flowers were tied with mini boas, and the cake was topped with more ostrich feathers - leaving some guests, when scanning the reception hall for the bride, heading off in the direction of the cake!

Transport for the bridal party and 180 guests from church to
reception to after-party, ice-carvings, scrumptious catering,
a harbour-side venue and unique musical entertainment were also organised by A Red Letter Day.

Akro-pac Pty Ltd Christmas Party, December 2002:

This event packed a punch with the theme of an English snowscape. A snow machine was utilised to create a memorable entry and exit of guests. Once inside, mini Christmas dinners made the most delightful cocktail food, and much fun came from the drinks that included (amongst more conventional favorites) Hot Toddies and cognac served in huge. brandy balloons.
Dry ice was employed to sizzle and steam prior to the speeches. Silver trees, sales packages in chrome boxes and beautifully wrapped gifts topped off an immensely stylish function.
