For this joint 18th and 21st birthday party, we designed a sophisticated concept reminiscent of 19th century Russia to create a luxury party experience.
On arrival, guests were offered drinks and canapes in an opulently coloured blue and gold reception area, framed by a series of mirrors in ornately carved gold frames and opulent gold picture frames, and styled with beautifully dressed gold scroll benches upholstered in red, with carved console tables dressed with glass vases filled with rich red roses and simple cream church candles.
The impressive bespoke semi-circular bar adorned with carved stone detailing in classic arches. Atop the bar we placed a beautiful ice luge, carved into the shape of the iconic St Basils Cathedral in Moscow above which hung a huge ornate black chandelier. After a delicious canape reception, guests dined on a beautiful dinner menu, offering Russian mezze to start, fillet of beef then a range of Imperial inspired desserts including Vodka and orange jellies and a Black Russian Mousse and bitter chocolate custard served in a Golden Egg to finish, all beautifully designed by Mustard Catering.
The beautiful glass and tableware was further complemented by tall candelabra on each table, holding striking cream candles. Each candelabra was dressed with vibrant foliage and velvety red roses. Trails of foliage dressed the length of the table, into which were nestled clusters of cream church candles, Faberge style eggs and clusters of Russian dolls.
