Mappin & Webb Christmas Celebration

To celebrate the first Christmas at the newly relaunched Regent Street Mappin & Webb store we were asked to create something really special. A quintessentially British Christmas, with traditional food, inspired cocktails and attentive service were the elements to incorporate; guests were to be invited into ‘Mappin & Webb’s house’.

Mappin & Webb is a long established British treasure, renowned for quality and superior craftsmanship. Following us catering for the reopening of the beautiful flagship store on Regent Street marked over two centuries of the brands history, and we had to deliver an exciting Christmas event to match.

A traditional British Christmas featured heavily in the theme, and guests were greeted by carol singers, before being ushered inside past the back drop of a roaring log fire, with Mappin & Webb branded stockings hung from the fire place. This created the perfect photo opportunity for this wonderful event, and after having their coats taken to the cloakroom, guests were handed British gin based cocktails or glasses of Chapel Down sparkling wine.

Mini bar stations tucked between exquisite jewellery cases ensured the drinks were flowing nicely on the ground floor, while music provided by a jazz trio floated gently up through the balcony from the lower floor.

A calligrapher signed stunning copies of traditional ‘A Christmas Carol’ for guests to take as presents, and we created an impressive gin bar on the cashier desk on the lower floor.

A selection of canapes were circulated on both floors, all served on the beautiful books and classic mirrors, in keeping with the traditional feel yet tying in the theme.

We have worked with Mappin & Webb across many events and this was a special event for us to be involved in. Find the food and drinks menus and gallery in the following pages.
