This event was for our a very special ladies 70th birthday party. Our client wanted to use her beautiful home and enhance the already stylish areas. The main priority though was making this party perfect for her much loved mother.
Our client wanted us to take care of everything. She wanted full service from event design and planning including décor, bar service and catering. Our client also didn’t want to be troubled on the day, so she and her family could truly enjoy celebrations with her mum. They wanted the wow factor whilst keeping the celebration appropriately intimate for 70 close friends and family.
It was important we took the time to really get to know as much as we could about our client’s mother. From her faveourite flowers, food to her favourite music, drinks etc. From the onset, from a décor perspective, we knew that flowers were the key and aimed to bring pops of colour to the garden.
We dressed a Gazebo with cascading florals and wisteria coupled with hanging birdcages with candles and trailing flowers across the entire ceiling. We brought in stylish rattan lounge furniture and low tables which again were dressed with floral displays, candles and soft pink and duck egg scatter cushions. There were floral displays and giant flowers across the entranceway and garden. The whole atmosphere felt ethereal, and we wanted guests to feel almost transported to an area of pure tranquillity.
Upon arrival, guests were met with a welcome drink and arrived to the bespoke welcome sign. Our bar installation was rustic but dressed with a full floral frontage and high end bar accessories creating a truly lux feel. Our Saving Grace Events front of house team served drinks from an all-day open bar for guests and this ensured the pressure was taken from our host and left her free to simply relax and enjoy the event.
A luxury authentic Brazilian BBQ was served, along with freshly baked breads and salads. Later in the day, we catered a beautiful afternoon tea with home baked cakes and scones and a multi-layered cream birthday cake, all served from vintage china.
We ensured the younger guests were catered for with garden games, and a magician went through the afternoon entertaining guests. We selected music from favourite songs and this created the perfect backdrop for laughter, conversation and created a magical afternoon of memories.
It was simply a wonderful day. Our client’s mother was simply blown away by the aesthetics of the event exclaiming she ‘never expected anything like this’. It’s so rewarding to see your client giving her friends a tour of her party pointing out the décor details! The event went without a hitch and our client could simply enjoy the whole event. This was a lovely relaxing celebration, all about connecting with friends and family from start to finish.
Saving Grace arranged a large garden party for us over the Summer. From the minute I met Rebecca I knew she was going to sprinkle magic dust all over it!
Rebecca is a true professional, super organised, fun, creative and calm. She worked well to a budget and a tight deadline, provided us with amazing caterers, bar staff, florist, furniture hire and a magician.
It’s immediately clear that Rebecca and her team will go all out to make your party the best you could imagine. She was there on the day alongside her immaculately turned out staff to ensure the set-up, party itself and the clean down went smoothly. All the guests had a ball and commented on the spectacular flowers, food, entertainment and lovely staff.
I enjoyed every minute and didn’t lift a finger before, during or after. We’ve used party organisers before, but Rebecca is on another level and I wouldn’t consider ringing anyone else.
