An Alice in Wonderland themed birthday party? A Mad Hatters tea party? Let your imagination run wild? Team Purrfect Parties were up for the challenge for this 40th Birthday Party held in Nottingham City Centre.

Alice inspired table centrepieces

We created table runners made out of artificial grass, black & white checker boards and Alice in Wonderland book pages. On top of these sat a range of vintage tea cups and saucers mostly poured with candles. There was also small jars of retro sweets with ‘Eat me’ labels.

As our featured photo shows you couldn’t not have a rabbit along the tea party. There were teapots too (some pouring out red hearts), old vintage books and multi-coloured butterflys!

There was a bespoke cocktail menu, served in a range of eclectic cocktail teapots, including ‘The Mad Hatter”, “The Queen of Hearts” and “The March Hare”. Flamingo topped cocktail sticks and heart decorated straws completed the cocktail menu.

The night continued with a fabulous party. Red hearts hung from the walls with fairy lights and a photo reel.

Claire and Laurent asked us to plan a garden party for them in the grounds of their family home. The occassion: To celebrate their forthcoming wedding overseas.

With about 8 weeks notice, Team Purrfect Parties pulled together a brilliant team to cover all aspects of their event including catering, drinks and lighting.

Garden party event planning and set up

DSC_0506.JPGTeam Purrfect Parties installed festoon lighting around the front garden along with blue & white paper lanterns and pom poms matching Claire’s favourite colours.  There were also large moroccan lanterns to provide further ambient lighting and more lanterns placed on shepherds crooks around the garden.

A champagne entrance awaited their guests along with a bespoke BBQ menu designed by the Limes Farm team to match the couples requirements.

The stretch tent was a perfect fit for the garden and played host to the bar area serving cocktails and drinks all afternoon and into the night.

As the event moved into the late summer evening, the festoon lighting really came into action. The Purrfect Parties team had also installed small LED lights into the large blue lanterns resulting in large lit blue balls bouncing around the garden.
