Case Study: Festival Theme House Warming Summer Party in Ascot

Quirky food and drink trucks became a feature of this housewarming party with a Summer festival theme. Our team created a laid back, rustic look with lanterns, festoon lighting, fairy lights and pallet furniture and our live band and DJ kept our client's guests partying late into the night.

  • Vintage Wine Bar
  • AV - sound & light design
  • Event Styling
  • Festoon Lighting, Fairy Lights & Lanterns

Case Study: "Help! We need an event planner, quick!"

We often get last minute calls to assist with the finishing touches of an event.

Common last minute requests come when a client, who initially thought they could do it all themselves, realises there's still too much to do and they won't meet the deadline alone. So we get the call to tie up the lose ends. Sometimes clients also need help because they've been let down by another supplier, in which case we can call on one of our professional supplier partners to complete the job.

This summer we had one of these requests. We had just two weeks (actually just 12 days!) to pull together the following:

  • Indoor Event Furniture Hire
  • Floral Displays
  • Lights & Sounds, including festoon lighting, wireless uplights, split-floor PA system
  • Stretch Tent Installation
  • DJ Hire
  • Door Security
  • On the day event coordination

To cut a long story short, the event was a great success!

Due to client confidentiality, we're unable to share many photos from this party, but here's just a few...

Whether it's a wedding or a simple birthday party in your back garden, a long table with white linen, florals and some dangling ivy leaves can make an attractive focal point.

Event planning is the fifth most stressful job in the world!

Event planners are often in demand for weddings, corporate events and birthday parties, just to name a few. It's no wonder why statistics show that event coordinators are ranked as fifth of the most stressful jobs of 2016. 

Some of the only jobs ranked more stressful than an event coordinator were military personnel, fire fighter, airline pilot and police officer. According to the US-based CareerCast, the average salary of an event coordinator is $46,490 (£32,953) which gave the job a stress score of 49.93 while a military job was given a score of 84.78. Furthermore, they determined that 'reconciling a client’s vision with a successful end-result' is the most difficult task in this job. They have also added that 'Bringing together ideas and turning them into a functioning, large-scale event takes an unflappable professional'.

Based on our experience with event planning and handling numerous clients, we could not agree more. From finding the right event suppliers, bar hire, caterers through to entertainment, waiting staff and bartenders, it could be too much to handle to enjoy. This is why our clients come to us. We make the planning part enjoyable for our clients so they can get what they want more efficiently and effectively. A fun event becomes a memorable experience that is priceless. 

Book an all inclusive event package with us and forget all the hassle of scouting for suppliers and having endless negotiations and stressful pressure to find the right supplier.
