To create an exceptional, beautiful 21st Birthday party at the client’s private country home, with the design hung loosely around a “Woodstock” theme and elegance, style and colour as key elements.
Guests were welcomed with cocktails mixed live in front of the award wining architectural feature of garden room, with hay bale furniture sets and installations of wooden “chumps”, candles, copious fairy lights and garden lighting. Canapés were served for 2 hours to allow guests to mingle and enjoy the garden. A laid back dinner was served at long, hand-made wooden trestle tables and folding chairs for 90 guests, under a bespoke overhead canopy of multi-coloured paper lampshades. The flowers were structured and simple, bringing colour to the clean-lined room together with coloured glassware and hand written placement cards. Dancing after dinner took place in a splendidly dressed and lit pair of tipis in front of the house. A fire bowl and further hay bale sofas, a full bar and comfy furniture provided drinks and chilling space until the early hours, when breakfast was served from a live grill.
“Thank you to you and all your team for helping to put together our daughter’s 21st birthday party on Saturday night. It was a great success which went until the early/ late hours of Sunday morning (as you know!) and ran like clockwork. So many of her friends described it as absolutely beautiful, we were all delighted with it.”
