When one of our MOST favorite corporate client calls us and asks us to coordinate & design an event for them in London… we don’t hesitate to oblige! We love the challenge of exploring new territory and getting to work with new vendors. Learning all new industry jargon made it even more interesting! Seriously though… sometimes we had no idea what people were talking about, and vice versa! J
After hours, upon hours, upon hours, upon hours of research… we truly found our dream team! We had the pleasure of working with such talented and lovely vendors… who put up with our lengthy emails and endless questions, because as most of you know we are DETAILED beyond belief.
To add to our excitement… we weren’t just asked to coordinate one event, but MANY! Including: conference set-up, multiple breakfasts, lunches and dinners! We really had to get our creative juices going to produce different vibes in each area, while still making everything feel cohesive. The Four Seasons Hampshire wasn’t the worst palate to begin with J
One of our most treasured designs, which we called “The Café”… was a custom pop-up green house/restaurant that we built from the ground up… literally! Berry Marquees really nailed our vision for this structure. Mixing in various woods and metal textures with tons of lush greenery made for a super chic and industrial feel! Blending high and low top seating for a casual and comfortable atmosphere. Purposefully, we decided on clear glass walls for our tent, to showcase the gorgeous views of London countryside! Needless to say we wanted to live in here… See the before picture to get an idea of what it looked like before we put our Lady Liberty touch on it :)
Even though the weather in London is really touch and go... we still wanted to give the guests an outdoor experience! We set up an organic, farm-to-table style lunch in the hotel’s already magical garden! We went for a very clean and minimalist vibe here, with all natural herbs to center the tables, to enhance the existing luscious surroundings.
For the main event, we wanted to create a sexy yet masculine mood… and I think we did just that! Combing different wood tones with modern black accents, adding in the jewel toned floral to spice it up. One of our obsessions at all of our events is a well thought out, intricate bar display! This one was no different… we couldn’t wait to see this installation come to life! A custom trained vine wall… the perfect backdrop for our classic bar! Lavender Green really came through and made our dreams come true! See for yourself!
