Picture a table beautifully set for dinner. The centerpiece could be regarded as the focal point for the table contributing to the decor of the entire room.
Usually at an event the centerpiece is the same from table to table. However, I have seen table settings, each of a different design, representing for example, where the guests had traveled from such as the New York table or the Miami table. I have also see centerpieces that represent the interests and activities of the celebrants.
A great deal of care can go into the design of a centerpiece. It shouldn’t be too big, obstructing the view of the other guests at the table or obstruct the view of the rest of the room where important activities will be taking place. It could have lights or be lit from above. All by itself the centerpiece can be regarded as one of the unifying factors in the visual presentation of an event.
Master of Ceremonies
In much the same way the master of ceremonies conducting the festivities of the evening is a unifying factor for an event; he’s the man out front.
The MC is representing the celebrant. He strikes the proper tone for the event. Unless otherwise instructed he is not there to make wisecracks or use profanity and otherwise make guests feel uncomfortable.

In this episode, I relay a story of a wonderful retirement party that I particularly enjoyed being part of that took place at the Shakespeare Club in Pasadena.
And now please enjoy, Party at the Shakespeare Club. Wedding and Event Podcast Episode 58.
