Planning perfect family celebrations

Planning the perfect family celebration

When you choose Evolve to help plan your family celebrations you’re not just planning a party; you’re making a memory.

Organising a family celebration isn’t for the faint-hearted! Milestone birthdays, wedding anniversaries, engagements, or send-offs, each requires a unique blend of careful planning and creativity to mark the occasion. That’s where we at Evolve Events excel, transforming important family milestones into unforgettable experiences.

Milestone birthdays

Celebrating a milestone birthday – such as a 40th or 50th – is about more than marking another year; it’s about celebrating the journey and achievements. We understand the significance of these moments and plan parties that are as unique as the individuals they celebrate, weaving in personal story telling to all the design elements.

  • For a nature lover, how about a Midsummer Night Dream or Festival theme where the catering is the star of the show, with food stations offering a variety of the Guest-Of-Honour’s favourite foods, along with some unexpected items like an edible garden to keep guests engaged.
  • Or for someone who’s a bit more Rock N Roll, what about hiring an iconic venue like the Roundhouse or Chateau Denmark and creating a ‘loud’ evening featuring blacklights, neon LED strip lights, and neon signs to create a glowing atmosphere and incorporating strobe lights and laser effects for a dynamic feel as well as a live rock band or a DJ who specialises in rock music, with a playlist chosen by family and friends.

Our extensive styling experience and venue knowledge ensure that no matter the vision, the perfect milestone birthday party is guaranteed.

Wedding anniversaries

From Paper to Golden and everything in-between, each wedding anniversary has its own significance, representing the years of shared experiences and love. We help couples celebrate milestones in style. From vow renewals in a venue with a gorgeous garden setting or an elegant sit-down dinner in a historic luxury townhouse, our expertise in venue selection and creative touches mean each anniversary is meaningful and memorable. With personalised elements that highlight your journey together, we create experiences that beautifully commemorate your special day.

Engagement parties

An engagement is the start of a new chapter in a couple’s life together, and marking this with a celebration sets the tone for the upcoming wedding. We craft engagement parties that really capture the character of the couple. Whether they want something laid-back with close family and friends or a glamorous statement cocktail evening with red carpet style, our creative vision and vast network of contacts will make it happen.

Special send-offs

Whether it’s a child leaving for university or a family member moving abroad for a new job, it’s never easy saying ‘Bon Voyage’. We help turn these bittersweet moments into celebrations that focus not on what’s being left behind, but on the new adventure ahead. A lively send-off party with a travel theme, featuring cuisine and decorations inspired by the destination, or a heartfelt farewell with personal speeches and a memory lane of photos, each event is unique.
