Venice Mask Carneval
You’d be surprised by the effect of some Venice style masks, a bit of art nouveau and the sound of a live Italian quartet playing operettas will have on your guests. With a concept straight outta the Venice canals. and with some smart waiters serving up champagne and prosecco flutes, carpaccio and cheese platters you will have everyone buzzing with the thrill of sophistication. Ideal for those who like to keep it classy and timeless.
Just when you felt you had enough of all that urban jungle comes an event that brings you a breath of African nature and calls you to explore your wilder side. The adventure will be deepened by a jungle of vegetation and artificial trees, animal patterns, wallpaper of zebras and tigers, fur and suede upholstery and flower and exotic fruit arrangements. A team dressed as safari guides will serve you addictive chin chin snacks, jollof rice, fruit salads and sweet fried plantains alongside refreshing Malawi shandy, ginger beer and iced tea while in the background the appropriate African drums will inspire you and speed up your heartbeat .
The Orient Express
For those who have visited the Istanbul bazaar, there is perhaps no more of a vibrant and colourful atmosphere. The sizzling smell of seasoned doner kebab, the phyllo pastries stuffed with everything imaginable and the dazzling assortment of Turkish delights such as glazed Baklava and Rahat Lokum treats. Smart waiters clad in traditional turkish garb serve steaming coffee and tea to guests on plush pillows as a live local band plays oriental music fit for the Sultan. No need to haggle, just kick back and enjoy.
Bring in the new year with some fresh alpine apres-ski vibes. Drop down the lights, spruce things up with some Fir trees and pamper your guests with cheese fondue, warm wine and cold brews. Make sure to have some Godiva chocolate fondue for dessert and enough board games to keep the guests entertained and entwined. The only thing which can make this even better is a hot tub and a sauna…
We’ll always have Paris
If you can’t take everyone to Paris for the new year, bring Paris to everyone. That starts with some classy French style waiters; black pants, black vest, starched shirts and bowtie. For refreshment, some nice Bordeaux wines, Cognac, Armagnac and Lillet Cocktails. An open kitchen serving up some baguettes with cheeses and dips, and then for later, some Éclairs, Macarons, and Pain Au Chocolats. For music, think Edit Piaf and some smokey cabaret for adventure and entertainment. Keep the lighting down, just like Midnight in Paris lamplights. A bien tot (:
The Great Gatsby
Celebrate the new year in style with a concept inspired by the man who invented style itself. Think black and white with dashes of gold and crystal. You can’t truly be festive without the champagne, preferably flowing from fountains. Add some pizazz with candlesticks, feathers and fauna and white pearls if you feel like splurging. For finger foods, go with devilled eggs, smoked salmon, baked oysters and for dessert keep it classy with an assortment of chocolates and tortes.
