Incredible Joint Party

The Downs School, September 2015

Working with CMC Marquees, we built a sensational marquee in the grounds at the Down School – the perfect spot for a joint party for an 18th, 21st, 50th and wedding anniversary! A beautiful combined party celebrating an 18th, 21st, 50th and a Wedding Anniversary.

The reception took place in the Great Hall, beautifully glad with original wooden panels and a open fire place.Canapes including maple glazed belly pork, broad bean & mint crostini and Vietnamese fresh spring rolls were circulated whilst guests enjoyed a fizz reception.

The tables and marquee were decorated using subtle colours making an elegant and sophisticated atmosphere. With towering candelabras and votive covering the tables, they radiated light and provided a brilliant gap across the varying generations at this joint party. A round LED bar provided the ideal focal point and included an towering floral arrangement for the eye catching centre piece.

A sensation four course menu, created by Tom Green at Fosters began with chilled tomato gazpacho with bruschetta, followed by a sharing starter of mini beef burgers, charcuterie boards, smoked chicken and hazelnut, salmon brochette and goats cheese salad. A sensational main of Tagliata di Manzo was served with French fries and roasted Mediterranean vegetables before a trio of desserts; chocolate mouse and salted caramel, treacle tart & clotted cream, honey & lavender pannacotta accompanied by raspberries and Greek yogurt.

To toast the speeches, we offered guests a shot of Limonchello before revealing the nightclub area and our resident DJ. Filled with LED furniture and glowing colours – it wasn’t long before the dance floor was in the full swing.

With dancing continuing long into the evening, guest were invited to stay over within the marquee. Alastair Currie Events arrived bright and early to provide a tasty breakfast offering of bacon baps and hot coffee; setting guests up for the journey home after a hugely memorable joint party.
