Taking advantage of the Indian summer, we welcomed the guests to a fun and quintessentially British party. This was a great chance to highlight the amazing potential of East Wintergarden, which benefits from blank canvas flexibility, while also remaining a unique and characterful venue in its own right.
Event Prop Hire supplied a fantastic array of furniture to create two "garden” areas where guests could relax and unwind. With grass circles, fencing, champagne cork stools and rattan furniture, their team created an amazing outdoor illusion and guests loved the special touches. Event Prop Hire were delighted to support the event; they have worked with the onsite team on several occasions and know exactly how to get the most from the venue.
As guests moved further into the main space, the mood changed and they were immersed in a chic and relaxing atmosphere. Subtly channelling the Union flag colour scheme through clever placement of flowers and furniture, Velvet Living created an enticing hub from which the attendees could enjoy our bespoke menu. Providing furniture for such events really allows clients to see it in-situ and get to really understand how it feels and would work on events.
We created a Best of British themed menu boasting dishes such as the perfect fish-finger sandwiches, cottage pie consommé with baked potato foam, crispy duck egg with baby watercress and sourdough soldiers and dessert canapés of custard apple and blackberry tart with hazelnut crumble and rhubarb and marmalade bread-and-butter pudding with cherry purée.
It was wonderful to see suppliers come together to create an evening that showed East Wintergarden at its incredible best.
