Family Celebration in the Time of Coronavirus

August 2020

We were very pleased to support a small family celebration to take place in August 2020, allowing households to meet for a special occasion with Covid-19 in mind.  Held at the family home in a lovely 5m Chinese Hat (with panoramic window walls to let all the lovely light in, but still allow for chill protection as the night drew in) we installed furniture, linen, gorgeous floral displays and all the tableware, along with some bespoke printed menus for the tables.

The family didn’t need to think about a thing beyond getting their glad-rags on, as we ensured all deliveries and equipment were brought in and sanitised with strict Covid procedures in place.  Our wonderful staff served guests a beautiful menu and accompanying champagne and wines, and it was a very relaxed and lovely evening.

The impactful floral displays looked stunning on the long dining table (1m wide between facing guests, to allow for distancing) especially when combined with our stunning crystal candlesticks and vintage tealight holders.

The delicious menu allowed for all guests to feel comfortable in choosing canapes, mindfully circulated to family groups. A fantastic progression of courses was served once guests had seated, our face-masked and gloved serving staff negotiated the garden steps admirably!

A full consideration of operating ‘Covid Secure’ informed and led all elements of the occasion, including plentiful hand sanitiser and a cleanliness rota for our team. We were very pleased to be able to support our client with their celebrations, and to deliver a beautiful and calmly co-ordinated occasion as guidance allowed at time of delivery.
