40th Birthday Party

A dark Venetian masquerade ball was the order of the day for a fabulous 40th birthday in December. Think masks, gold, opulence, black lace, tuxedos and a purpose designed marquee space to party the night away in.

Guests were greeted by a fire juggler before entering the blacked out marquee and being greeted with cocktails named after the theme – the Allergo, Overture, Masquerade, Smoke Screen and Adagio were composed by dressed up bar tenders, using fresh ingredients to match the family’s favourite flavours.

The canapes proceeded a completely bespoke menu created exclusively by our chefs for this party – they designed food stations brimming with Roman-esque platters of food, a skewer station and dessert station featuring mini doughnuts and macarons. All food was served from golden serving station, emulating extravagant Roman banquets with mouth-watering charcuterie choices.

A video booth entertained the guests, until the dramatic curtain drop revealed a whole other party space. An amazing indoor fire act wowed guests until the fabulous band – who  also donned masks for the occasion! – took to the stage and the dancing begun!

The staff were dressed all in black, with the girls wearing black lace shirts which tied in with their hand painted, masquerade eye masks. Overall, a brilliant party which lasted long into the night!
