La Dolce Vita Party: The River Cafe

  • { Event Snapshot }

      2 VINTAGE FIAT 500s

      700 ORANGES AND LEMONS

      2 LONG TABLES OF DOLCE VITA

What could be a more quintessentially Italian setting than The River Café which we transformed for the perfect La Dolce Vita party for our very glamorous client to celebrate her birthday.

A pair of fiat 500s at the entrance to the famous restaurant decorated with pastel balloons and bespoke birthday wishes stickers welcomed guests. As they were drawn inside by the strains of ‘Volare’, the heady scent of orange blossom and citrus fruit perfumed the air. The long tables were decorated by world famous florist John Carter with lemon and orange trees, Icelandic poppies and yellow margarites. Everywhere there was an abundance of zesty mint and fragrant rosemary. Guests’ tastebuds were treated to a selection of exquisite Italian delicacies including plates of anti pasta, crab spaghettini, beef and turbot, rounded off by chocolate nemesis all cooked by the famous chef Ruth Rogers.

The hours melted away as the Gypsy Queens serenaded the guests.
