The Brief

To host a stylish 50th birthday party at home, gathering friends and family for drinks, dinner and dancing. Not to look weddingy! Cocktails and DJ to be the focus!

The Solution

A gorgeous party tent surrounded by garden lighting welcomed guests to walk from the house over the haha and down to the field at dusk. Seasonal floristry was foraged from the garden and surrounding fields to dress the entrance, create a show-stopping installation over the bar and an intricate candlelit canopy of fine tendrils and foliage over the dining tables, coupled with bold dahlias and teal details on the tables.

Trayed drinks and canapes were served, escort cards were ready to guide guests to a 2-course seated dinner with speeches from the family, followed by cocktails at the bar, and hours of dancing with sweet treats and coffee available. A memory book from the photo booth and a superb photo gallery from Mark Nicholson captured the evening perfectly.
