Our client wanted to celebrate her big 50th in a Latin style, hosting a Latin American style party for around 100 guests in her elegant house and large garden in north London.
Her guests were all connoisseurs of good food so the hostess requested a variety of delicate, creative, Latin American dishes (including kosher-fishertarian options) to be accompanied by exotic cocktails and fine Latin American wines, music and entertainment.
We saw, after visiting the house and talking to our customer, that we decided that we needed keep the elegance of the house (but also to protect her new floors) and, as it was July, to maximise the use of the garden with a marquee and dance floor.
We decided to bring the garden to the house, by covering the floors with artificial grass and using tropical flowers as decoration. Our florist converted the banister into a curtain of orchids picking up the colours of the pictures. This became a focal point for the guests and great backdrop for photos. We set up a cocktail bar in their elegant kitchen from which our cocktail waitress/er Julia & Leo served drinks. We converted the garage into a kitchen and served a selection of Kosher-fishitarian, canapés and small dishes throughout the night. The evening climaxed with a all the guests joining into the samba and caipoera show.
