Our client wanted to put on a first birthday party for her adorable son. Our client had a vision and being super creative, she wanted a company that could help bring her vision of ‘Noah’s Ark Party’ to life.
The chosen venue was a high-end restaurant in Birmingham city centre. The venue was glamourous and stylish to suit the client, but also open and flexible enough to transform into a multi-space facility to match the children’s and adults needs of this event.
We themed the event throughout with giant life-size animals from giraffe’s, elephants, bears, zebra’s and monkeys to gorilla’s, flamingo’s and lions. We also dressed the tables and other spaces with mini golden animals two-by-two and foliage, green and gold orb balloons and a horse and carriage with balloon décor.
Guests were greeted with elegant themed cocktails. We accessorised with jungle cocktail stirrers and enjoyed pan-Asian canapes and bowl foods throughout the afternoon. Children’s birthdays are all about cake, so we catered animal themed cupcakes, ornate cake pops and a huge 4-tiered Noah’s ark cake as the centrepiece of a stunning cake display.
For the children, we created a bespoke ‘Noah’s Ark Zone’ with a jungle welcome sign, leading to a bespoke Noah’s Ark feature, commissioned especially for little Noah inclusive of his own portrait with portholes for photo opportunities and ‘blue-sea’ soft flooring and soft toy jungle animals. It looked spectacular.
Entertainment was immersive and worked throughout the venue, from the outside to the interior. This included a ‘lion and ringmaster’ circus entertainers and a clown and circus workshop in the children’s zone. The children were also treated to arts and crafts and we ran competitions throughout the afternoon. For the adults our DJ played throughout the day accompanied with an electric light-up violinist. We also had a stunning tropical wall for photo opportunities with bespoke Instagram frames.
True to the story of ‘Noah’s Ark’ and the dove that flew to look for dry land -before the party ended our very special birthday boy Noah released two of his own doves….. the perfect fairy-tale ending to the most famous story of all time.
The day was a huge success. It took the 100 plus guests on an exciting journey into ‘Noah’s Ark’ and provided special memories for everyone who attended. Our client arrived in style part way to the event, safe in the knowledge that Saving Grace Events had everything in hand. This was an immersive event that worked on all of the senses from the moment guests arrived.
This truly was a party to remember and has surely set a precedent for Noah’s future parties! The event was captured perfectly by our in-house photography and videography team. We are thrilled that Sara and Nik have already booked us for multiple future events as their chosen partner.
