Authentic Summer Fiesta

The Brief

A summer event for Facebook London with plus ones and children, expected guests 1200 adults and 200 children. Source venue, design theme, handle all guest management and logistics. Design, source, produce all aspects of the event.

The Idea

An authentic fiesta style party which works from day to night, with an eclectic vibrant vibe running through all things- bringing together food, entertainment and styling into a visual feast for the eyes.

The Result

We sourced a beautiful private venue in Kent. We designed an event identity which was then used across all invites and guest artwork. On the day guests arrived on coaches from their London office, by train with minibus pick-ups or by car to the venue.

On arrival guests were were met by authentic Mexican dancers and strolling mariachis before walking up a tree lined path full of papel piccado.

We created many different areas for the guests to relax and enjoy. A large Mexican food market, a Tulum Beach bar complete with four side bars and a central bar serving up fresh tacos, cocktails, margaritas, prosecco and more. An indoor cocktail bar served up both mocktails and Mexican classics. An indoor café served up tea and coffee alongside fresh baked cakes and biscuits alongside an outdoor games lounge. There was hook a Mexican duck for families with prizes, Frida’s floral bar for headdresses with fresh flowers, mystical fortune tellers and a beauty bar to relax in with lots of Instagram moments around the site to stop and have fun with.

A kid’s field catered to every whim from an arts and crafts tent, tea party area, sweet stall, petting zoo, bubble man and dinky donkey rides around a wooded glade being some of the highlights.

Another outdoor large game area was set up with a ton of entertainment on offer from bouncy castles to racing cars and ping pong tables. We also bought in a 50ft wave swinger to take everyone up above the venue for the best view of the day.

The evening party was held in four large teepees and the Cuban Brothers headlined an incredible show which got everyone onto the dancefloor before Drum & Beats took over the decks into the later hours.

Huge HUGE congrats and thank you for such an amazing day yesterday – it was truly magical.
