Fairy Tale Fun

Fairy Tale Fun

The word on the event street is that the fairy tale theme is hot for 2015 with the releases of ‘Into the Woods’ and ‘Cinderella’ this year. Think elves, fairies, giants, mermaids, witches, gnomes, trolls and lots of magic!

We think this theme is a winner as there is so much you can do with it and you can make any venue into an enchanted fairy tale with some dramatic décor. This theme could work for any type of event and especially for any weddings this year as well as corporate summer parties.

Fun ideas for this theme are endless! You can decorate the room based on your favourite fairy tales and dress it as if you are in your very own magical castle. For example, you could set the tables with mismatched tea cups and plates and have tea pots as flowers so you have an ‘Alice in Wonderland’ feel. Or if you are fan of ‘Sleeping Beauty’, you can have crystal bowls as centrepieces filled with polished red apples.

Greens and browns work really well for this theme with lots of wood, grass and moss detail. You could also use loads of bright colours or some lovely pastels, every colour seems to fit in with this theme! Candles and lanterns would work perfectly too.

Get in touch with us now for some more ideas but in the meantime, take a look at our mini mood boards for some ideas of décor, food, table cards, table decorations and more…

Christmas 2014

What a year 2014 was! We worked with some amazing people, venues, suppliers and, most importantly, our fantastic clients. There were a number of events that we organised and managed over the Christmas period and these were mainly Christmas parties for our corporate clients at various venues in and around London. Many events this year were themed and the most popular theme seemed to be the 1920s/1950s Hollywood Glamour theme. The office was filled with fun accessories for our events including pearls, clapper boards, fake giant cigars, headbands, cigarette holders and more. Check out some of our favourite photos from our 2014 Christmas events…

Afternoon Tea Week August 2014

Since it is National Afternoon Tea Week this week, we have decided to tell you which are our favourite afternoon tea venues in London. Here are the team’s favourites…

Harry – Claridges

A very classic, traditional afternoon tea. If you want somewhere very English, this is the place to go. The Foyer has a very art deco 1930s feel to it to go with the truly magical afternoon tea experience.

Elia – The Berkeley

This is afternoon tea with a creative twist to the classic afternoon tea elements. It is inspired by the themes and colours of the fashion world and changes every six months to follow the changing seasons in fashion. Their cakes and fancies are inspired by designers such as Christian Louboutin, Miu Miu, Oscar De La Renta and many more. A really cool, quirky way to have afternoon tea!

Nicola – Marriott Grosvenor House

I have been to quite a few venues in London for afternoon tea as it’s an activity I often enjoy with my friends. Marriott Grosvenor House’s afternoon tea has definitely been the best up to now. Their sandwiches are exquisite, their teas are very unique, the scones are heavenly and the desserts were delicious too. Their service is also fantastic – highly recommended!

Donnie – The Lanesborough

Even though the Lanesborough is currently closed for renovations, their afternoon is tea is absolutely amazing. They have a great selection of teas and sandwiches and the hotel is lovely. Great place in London for afternoon tea.

Andrea – The Dorchester

The venue is beautiful, the food is fresh and the scones were fantastic! It is the best afternoon tea I have ever been too and I recommend it to others.

Vanessa – The Landmark

The Winter Garden is the perfect setting for afternoon tea and is situated at the heart of the soaring eight story glass roof atrium. Not only do The Landmark offer scrumptious sandwiches, French pastries and scones, but they also have mouth-watering chocolate delights available as well as a vast array of teas.

Niklaus – Sanderson London

In my opinion, the best afternoon tea in London! Afternoon tea at the Sanderson London is like no other – it has a Mad Hatter’s Tea Party theme. Something completely different and so fun. Vintage books as menus, napkins wrapped in riddles, queen tea pots, marshmallow mushrooms and many more exciting little treats.

Lorna – The Grove

The sweet finger sandwiches, scones and chocolaty desserts are well presented upon a traditional English stand. Which definitely matches the historic surroundings making you dream of being among the rich for every afternoon. Such a lovely gift for mothers and aunts or even for that special someone.

Hamboula – Hilton Park Lane

If you love chocolate, Hilton Park Lane’s afternoon tea is the one for you! With a mix of Pop art and chocolate, everything looks amazing as well as tastes amazing. They have delicious sandwiches but even their scones have chocolate in! Every chocolate lovers dream!
