Something quite magical…
This weekend saw the collaboration between Alresford Marquees, Caper and Berry and the A little Bunting Event to bring together Clare’s twenty first birthday party which hosted the fantastic theme of “Fairy tales and Fables”
The AM team arrived at the venue last Tuesday to erect the impressive marquee which compromised of a dining area, dance and bar area, photo booth and even a dormitory.
The photo booth area had been designed to look like a Ginger bread house and had a facade made up which meant guests entered the house in order to have a photo taken and keep the picture as a wonderful token of the night.
A Little Bunting Event’s Anna Martin was on site to provide stunning styling and theming. We asked Anna what her favourite bit of the job was and this is what she had to say”It was so exciting having the opportunity to really let my imagination take over and be brought to life. I created a magical wood theme in the dance area by using natural birch trees decorated with fairy lights and then contrasted this in the other room with decadent mirrors and silver goblets etc”
The wonderful Caper and Berry provided the catering and as always pulled out the stops with their impressive and imaginative mouth watering menus.
Canapes were distributed during the drinks reception tantalising guests with Fig, parma ham and mozzarella on bamboo skewers; mini butchers sausages with purple sage and maple; Goan spiced crispy fishcakes topped with C&B’s own raita dip; whipped goats cheese topped with fresh fig and walnut dust and lastly roasted butternut squash.
The main course was served and out came Pan roasted breast of chicken served on crushed new potatoes with a pea, pancetta and tarragon sauce and seasonal vegetables, a perfect summer dish.
Guests were spoilt for choice with dessert when they were wowed with Lemon posset and fresh raspberries, classic Eton Mess and vanilla cream and lastly decadent chocoloate mousse with homemade brownie and honeycomb topping.
The night itself was a great success with the white dance floor well occupied with Mark Townend from Storm productions playing the night away and the LED light bar being used to it’s full potential.
Back at the yard Oli said “even in these terrible weather conditions it’s great to put up a marquee like this and see the finished result and know that everyone had a great time”
The feed back was fantastic and our happy clients had this to say “You were so helpful in the lead up to the party which was always done calmly and professionally and your team were all polite and pleasant, please give a special thanks to Peter. Thank you for putting us in touch with Anna at the A Little Bunting Event, she did an amazing job, Caper and Berry and Mark Townend. You made a brilliant team”
