50th Birthday Party: Vinopolis - Anglo American Thanksgiving

  • { Event Snapshot }

      720 SEASONAL CANAPES

      96 DECORATIVE PUMPKINS

      1 MASSIVE GLITTER BALL

An American wife and an English husband celebrated their 50th birthdays, 20th wedding anniversary and Thanksgiving in a setting dressed with autumnal design. 

After a canapé reception, guests walked through a bespoke, hand crafted woodland canopy on their way to dinner – tables were filled with flowers, pumpkins, aubergines (“eggplant” for the Yanks) and bathed in warm candlelight. In a nod to the ‘special relationship’ between the US and UK, tables were named after Presidents and Prime Ministers and each table was decorated with hand-scribed parchment ‘streamers’ quoting amusing mottos about the nations. After a showstopping dance performance by the hosts, their daughter and a troupe of “Strictly Come Dancing” artistes, guests jived the night away to the beats of a fantastic ten-piece party band.
