Melissa’s 23rd Birthday
The client came to us looking to celebrate her birthday in style. She wanted something fun and informal, centred around the feeling of being at a beautiful, relaxed festival.
Upon arrival, dressed in their best CAMP outfits, guests entered into such a world. A ‘festival feel’ evening that melted into a delicious dinner followed by dancing by the lake, finally crescendoing with a surprise festival rave hidden in the forest…
Another must have for the client was to thread imaginative details throughout the night, from the funky sunglasses acting as place names to the horse box gin bar (horse being the client’s real passion), every detail was thought through and executed with precision and style.
Creating an entire separate rave set up without anyone noticing was quite the challenge but with well timed lighting cues, deceptive and talented samba drummers and excellent event management execution meant we pulled it off with a fantastic reaction from awed guests. To top it off, waiting to greet guests as they made their way through the transcendent trees was Ms Dynamite lighting it up, with guests partying on down until well after the sun rise.
Having kipped in the bell tent village, guests were woken to the smell of bacon and clink of ice in spicy bloody Mary’s. The party continued from a lazy brunch into a slothful grazing lunch, pocketed with semi competitive garden games and lazy dips on giant flamingos in their tranquil lake.
