What the internship is:
... An invaluable look at the hard work that really goes into an event
... A great opportunity to learn from
... Climbing, hanging, folding, arranging, setting up, fixing, running, rearranging anything and everything
What the intership isn't:
... like anything you've seen in the movies (ie. The Wedding Planner)
... Full-time (about 10-15 hours per week when we have an event)
Okay so you have the basic details...still interested?

... calm in the face of adversity (like a MIA best man)
... a good negotiator
... comfortable getting dirty (yes, we often find ourselves crawling on the floor)
... knowledgeable about colors, flowers
... able keep up with the latest trends
... have a good fashion sense (of course we have to look good)
... fun, funny (we like to laugh...a lot)

Still reading? Sweet. Still Interested? Even better.
Here's what we want:
A list of 10 random facts that will help us get to know you. Be creative, quirky, silly, whatever, just don't bore us. Personality is key people.
An inspiration board - make it fun, interesting and not something we've seen a thousand times. The only rule? It has to incorporate orange. What can we say? It's our favorite color.
If you grab our attention, we'll be in touch. Send us an email (feel free to include photos, we LOVE photos) with your list to get things started.
Deadline for submission is Monday February 20th, 2012
Here's what we don't want:
Your resume. Your job experience. Unsolicited requests for paid positions. Phone calls.
