Another day another showcase

For those of you who didn’t know, we have a huge number of corporate clients that we work with year round. We aren’t ‘just’ wedding planners, although we know it can sound that way sometimes! 😉

Last week we had the pleasure of hosting a second showcase at the Garden Museum which was specifically aimed at corporate clients.  This very unique venue is situated on the South Side of the River Thames, overlooking Parliament and next door to Lambeth Palace. The Dan Pearson designed garden hosts the tomb of Captain Bligh and for those that recognise the name but can’t think why, Captain Bligh = Mutiny on the Bounty!

As guests arrived through the café entrance they were welcomed by lush velvet sofas and the poshest mirrored posing tables you could wish for! They were served with perfectly chilled fizz and some of our canapes which were specially designed for the evening.  As always, non-drinkers were catered for too, we had a wonderful fruit punch with apples and rosemary, served with paper straws.

Guests enjoyed a selection of canapes that included an edible garden with black olive ‘dirt’, caramelised red onion, dolcelatte and thyme tartlets (a personal favourite), the cutest bagels filled with cream cheese, smoked scottish salmon and capers, and china spoons of beef carpaccio tartare, roasted tomato sauce, Parmigiano Reggiano and truffle oil.

If you hadn’t already guessed, a favorite part of my job is sitting down with Suzanne (the #canapequeen herself) and designing exciting menus for these exclusive events. This menu was no exception, it really couldn’t have been any better, with vegans, vegetarians, meat and fish eaters all delighted by our offerings, and our incredible waiting team ensuring that all corners of the floor were served.

Once all guests had arrived, they were invited by the Garden Museum events team to enjoy the Elizabeth Marsh Floral Designs imaginative and bold flower installation “the enchanted walkway” which transported guests to the Nave and yet another beautifully decorated space with stunning vibrant flower displays by established florist Karen Woolven, Furniture by Velvet Living, a flower clad photo boothe by SnapBoothCo and music with live saxophonist by John Hinds aka DJ4Me.

In this area grazing stations were set out with seasonal vegetables and dips, followed by desserts to round off the evening.

This was such a successful evening, showcasing one of London’s best party venues. Just a short walk from three separate London Underground stations, the Museum is a perfect venue for guests and clients, offering them something unique and memorable in stunning surroundings. Whether it’s the more traditional Nave with its medieval tower or the brand new Sackler Garden extension designed around a garden oasis, the Garden Museum has a space for all types of events (seated 120 max, standing 200 max).
