Very, very cool.
If you need fear to enforce your beliefs, then your beliefs are worthless.

I don't consider this out of line. This kind of question is what these forums are for. While actual dollar amounts vary widely be region so actual dollar amounts would not mean much in your area compared to mine.

This was a part of a much larger decorating job for a corporate client. You should charge a lot more for this type of thing than you'd charge for line work twisting or birthday parties.

Also, I find that going with the theme one huge piece like this gets you talked about.

"They did a great job and did you see the 40 ft. rattlesnake!?!" "Take a picture of the snake!"

Those type of comments mean a lot more future business than a tepid, "The decorations are nice."

So, the answer is charge by the job. Wow the client. Charge a high fee so it is worth your time, supplies, and effort.

Wow! Thanks Curt! I agree with the "you gotta WOW them" . I am a caterer for a living and if you cant get people to talk about you then your not gonna get very far.
Sounds like some great advice. Happy friday everyone!
