The Brief: A private festival held for over 500 guests celebrating a 60th birthday party in Oxshott.

The Event

This one was special. We took the brief and went to town. Bringing in a huge clear roof marquee, with a built-in lounge area that we turned into a Fulham lounge (our clients favourite football club). We had 5 different bars at the venue. One at the centre of the marquee and others around the property all serving different drinks. Among these were some amazing craft cocktails including Papaya & Ginger Collins and Green Tea Mojitos.

Given its festival theme we had to be creative with the food element here. We set up street stalls and served international street food! The dishes included, Pan American finger food, Polish Pierogi & Maczanka bar and an Authentic Asian Street Market. For a round of dessert afterwards we went round with Alcoholic ice pops, jelly vodka shots and artesian

Now it sounds like we got on this all nailed right? But it wouldn’t be afestival without some big performances! We made some calls…getting things kicked off we had DJ Philly, London’s most in-demand VIP party DJ, heating up the dance floor allowing Sophie Ellis-Bextor to walk out to already warm crowd! The IDolls cleaned up the evening in the pool area.

Lastly, we had to keep our guests entertained, as if the headline acts cultured food and boozy cocktails weren’t enough! We brought in some of the country’s most talented graffiti artists to create a piece of art, live in front of the guests! Add to that some face painting,
edible balloons, sweet stalls and a huge Ferris wheel in the front drive way, we’d say we had it all covered!

What a night…
