Dusting of snow…

We received a call in October last year for us to cater a landmark (we won’t say what age) birthday party locally to us, with the brief being that all organisation and event management was left to us. We met up with the family shortly after to discuss the overall look and outcome they wanted to achieve being a January party.

The site was not straightforward as we wanted to incorporate the garden and grounds as much as possible, this meant a structural floor going over the swimming pool , wrapping a marquee around the house and making sure guests were going to be warm enough, just in case we had any of the white stuff! Many mood boards and site visits later the start day for building came around and snow was forecast later that week , eek!! We soldiered on, Marlin Marquees did an amazing job and were finished and secure just in time for the snow arriving, which actually worked in our favour and gave the event a really special feel and such a beautiful view for the guests as they dined. The snow didn’t keep the guests away either, canapes and champagne were served on arrival and guests then took their seats for a Japanese inspired dish, a particular favourite of the client, followed by a pear and apple tart tatin. Once the birthday candles were blown on one of the biggest chocolate cakes we’ve seen dancing started to The Allstars, who never fail to fill the dancefloor. Everyone had a great evening, we meet some lovely people and we have had some amazing feedback since ……..have a look below at the great comments we have had so far following the party. Thank you to Stuart Harrison for capturing the evening so well.

from the clients…..

Steve, Emma, Simone and the Red Herring team,

We had a brilliant time with our family and friends on Saturday. We were able to enjoy both the run up to the event and the whole evening, because absolutely all the practicalities were covered by Red Herring.  You the best job.

Many thanks to the whole team,

Graham, Sue, Soph and Jessy.

from the guests….

‘A big thank you to you both for a fantastic party! Great food, fun music and superb company!! The marquee looked absolutely beautiful, it really had that ‘wow factor’ when we all walked in. We so enjoyed dancing all night.’

‘Everything about it – the food, wine, band, and of course the company was fantastic and the marquee was breathtaking!! Thank you both again.
