Friday 1st May 2009 40th Birthday Celebration
16 Guests for a Fine Dining Dinner Party
This client came through recommendation to us and was planning a surprise dinner party for her husband who had ‘everything’! She wanted him to have his friends and family over for an evening of fine wine and gourmet food.
Guests arrived for a Champagne Reception in her drawing room where we served hot and cold canapés and then they moved through to her dining room to sit for a fine dining experience. We served different wines with each course which had been designed to match each dish.
We also prepared her table with a black and silver theme with crystal glasses, table centres, candles and funky linen cloths.
Lizzy, we can’t extend our thanks to you and your amazing team for all your hard and effortless work. My husband was thrilled with the evening and the food – it was absolutely super the presentation was just perfect and the service so professional my guests could not believe that all came from my tiny kitchen! We will be in touch very soon as will our friends and family.
