I love this table, guests can buy a flower which has a number on it which is matched to a random, surprise item on the table. It’s a clever way to raise additional funds
and create a mystery moment like when you attend a white elephant party after Christmas.

At one point one of the co-hosts ask if anyone could make an additional donation for the day. The goal was to reach $5000. With each donation, little or big,
the giver got a purple carnation. By the end of 15 minutes quite a few of the carnations were given out.
