We planned this party for a client’s 21st birthday on the night of the winter solstice. The shortest day of the year gave them the longest night to party. We constructed a temporary event structure in the grounds of their home and styled the interior with luxurious draping, lights and vintage style furniture for a sit-down meal followed by dancing to a world-class DJ.
The vast event structure with extended height, pagoda entrance, covered walkway and double glass doors kept guest warm with heating and carpet over a hardwood floor. A partitioned wall hid a cloak room. Guests emerged into the main space which held the dinning tables, cocktail bar, dance floor and DJ booth.
With a nod to nature and the original winter solstice evergreens, the venue interior design encompassed vintage style trestle tables and chairs, draped walls, star cloth ceiling, iron candelabras, winter foliage, tea lights, woodland berries and a birch tree. Professional cocktail bar tenders showed their flair and showmanship behind a three metre LED backlit fully equipped horseshoe shaped bar.
This ‘pop-up’ party venue was beautiful, warm and inviting on the cold solstice night. Coupled with the best professional entertainment, sound and lighting the feel was more London private members club than garden marquee.
