The sights and sounds of Disney were bought to life this month as we designed a 50th birthday party at Kent House Knightsbridge complete with a cake decorated with Disney characters, a steel band playing Disney tunes and the look and feel of vintage 1930s Disney with ostrich feathers, pink roses and pea lights.
A senior member of the Euro Disney team recently celebrated her 50th birthday and this, combined with a wedding anniversary, was the perfect excuse for a party. We styled Kent House Knightsbridge into a fairytale destination perfect for a Disney princess and her guests. The outside of the building was lit in pink to welcome guests who, as they arrived for margarita and cosmopolitan cocktails, got into the mood with a selection of iconic Disney tunes played on steel drums. The whole of the staircase was dressed in flowers featuring an installation of willow, ivy, eucalyptus and palm leaves along with flowers in blues, pinks and whites, all intertwined with fairy lights.
Upstairs the 200 guests helped themselves to a ceviche bar, made in ice and engraved with a Disney castle, that we set up on the terrace as well as enjoying delicious canapes and bowl food. Afterwards plenty of white lounge furniture created a modern setting for some guests to relax and chat whilst others enjoyed the black and white dancefloor. The highlight of the evening was a magnificent cake by Ever After Cakes made with red velvet, carrot and passion fruit cake and chocolate tiers and decorated with Disney characters and served on a 6 foot mirror tray. And sadly, before they knew it carriages were arriving and with a cry of “That’s All Folks” guests disappeared into the night and the magic of the party was complete.
Exclusive hire of Kent House Knightsbridge allows each event to unfold over two floors with four large and spacious rooms that be configure for different purposes. Whilst the venue holds an enormous amount of history, it also provides a neutral and elegant backdrop; essential for staging press days, product launches and conferences. Kent House Knightsbridge is ideal for 50 to 300 guests.
