We are thrilled to announce that we have been chosen as the event planners and caterers for the Westwood Society Dinners, with the first being held last week.
Guests were treated to a selection of tasty canapés before being seated and enjoying a delicious three course meal with beautifully paired wines and champagne.
Canapés included scallops, chorizo and pea puree and edible spoons with crème fraiche and caviar.
The starter was New season asparagus, pancetta, soft boiled duck egg, shaved spring truffle. Beef fillet was served as the Main course, accompanied by dauphinoise potato, glazed chantenay carrot and red wine jus. Dessert was Lemon Tart, smashed amoretti, clementine and mint puree.
We were delighted to host Sally Gunnell as a speaker at the dinner, who shared some of her experiences and offering motivational tips and advice to the guests.
The table design needed to be fairly simplistic, but elegant and the brief for the centrepiece was that it needed to be low. The finished effect was clean and stylish, with a contemporary and colourful twist with mirrors, candles and pink florals by Lily’s Flowers in the centre of the table.
For a fun ‘place card’ idea we chose GC Couture to make bespoke cookies with guest initial monograms on. Not only did they look great, they tasted pretty good too!
The dinner also coincided with a farewell for one of the Directors who is to retire. To mark the occasion a cake, also made by GC Couture, was presented and a video created by Cinematic Pictures, of all colleagues reminiscing about times gone by was arranged and shown on the night. Such a fab idea and one that proved popular and was certainly enjoyed by all!
