FRUITY IDEA

Placement settings and name cards ideas for parties weddings and eventsAPPLE PLACE SETTING – WE FIRST USED THESE FOR A “TEMPTATION” THEMED 40TH BIRTHDAY PARTY.

FUN AND EFFECTIVE, WE’VE SINCE REPLICATED THE IDEA WITH PLACEMENT CARDS PINNED ON TO ROWS OF PEACHES AT A SUMMER PARTY, PUDDING DISPLAY NAMES ON POMEGRANATES FOR A MOROCCAN PRIVATE EVENT, AND TUCKED INTO SMALL CLUSTERS OF GRAPES FOR A WINE BUFFS’ DINNER PARTY. PEDICTABLY PERHAPS, THE LATTER ATE HIS NAME PLACE SETTING WITH CHEESE. [Read more…]

THE CAR’S BOUQUET

Party and event organiser ideas - wedding car flowers and bouquetTHIS IDEA CAME ABOUT QUITE BY ACCIDENT WHEN ONE OF OUR BRIDES FORGOT HER WEDDING BOUQUET.

ONE OF OUR SET DESIGNER CREW MEMBERS QUICKLY HAND TIED A BUNCH OF WHITE TULIPS CREATING AN EFFORTLESSLY ELEGANT BOUQUET THAT LOOKED PERFECTLY INTENTIONAL.

PUDDING TO GO

Party and event organiser insider ideas - takeaway boxesFOR THOSE GUESTS WHO ARE JUST TOO FULL TO EAT ANY MORE. FOR THE FRIENDS WHO WERE TOO BUSY DANCING TO NOTICE PUDDING WAS BEING SERVED. FOR WHEN A RELATIVE HAS TO LEAVE THE PARTY EARLY. FOR PARENTS TO TAKE HOME TO CHILDREN. FOR WHEN THE PUDDING TABLE IS FULL OF LEFTOVER ELABORATE CAKES THAT WILL OTHERWISE GO TO WASTE. FOR REPLICATING THOSE CHILDHOOD MEMORIES WHEN IT WAS ENOUGH FOR GOODY BAGS TO CONTAIN NOUT BUT A SLICE OF BIRTHDAY CAKE.

FOR WHEN THE HOST WANTS THEIR GUESTS TO TAKE A LITTLE PIECE OF THEIR PARTY HOME WITH THEM.
