Inspired by the French & Italian 18th Century movement, this was a celebration which oozed style, grace and a joie de vivre.
When our friends at Apollo Event Consultants came to us recently to help transform a marquee for a birthday party, decorated and furnished in a Rococo style, we donned our wigs and got into the spirit of the occasion.
Opulent stone columns and balustrade, draped with sheer grey voile, led into a dazzling dining space. Dishes of flowers with silver crackled glass night light holders sat with genie lamps with black shades. All these were arranged on mirrored table tops which reflected the circular illuminated chandelier, dressed with ivy and hydrangea, suspended overhead.
Elsewhere we added contemporary mirror details and furnishings, such as our Shard bar, to contrast with the traditional elements. Ivory occasional furniture sat against paneled walls, adorned with detailed wall papers, mirror cut motifs and a delicate paint scheme.
The subtle glow from night-lights, candles, lamps and chandeliers glimmered off every reflective surface and lent the occasion an intimate and welcoming ambiance.
