The Garden of Innovation – Old Billingsgate
Last summer theme at Old Billingsgate
Eventologists were challenged by a research company to design a bespoke themed event for their summer gala dinner that not only reflected the company but also brought the outdoors indoors at an event held at Old Billingsgate in London. The spectacular transformation from an empty event space to a superb corporate event created quite a stir!
Attention to detail and pure magical ingenuity was the key elements to this event. We laid artificial turf on the terrace just outside for drinks reception overlooking the Thames with the London skyline in the background. As guests were ushered in, we forced them to the main banqueting room through a tunnel of arches and trees which were specially design with sparkly reflective garlands to represent our tree of reflection in a garden of reflection, a space where party goers can network, drink and the divide between the banqueting room and the party room!
The banqueting room had a stunning array of garden themed table centres which were specially designed to represent the garden of innovation; 8 full size artificial trees were designed with unique details to represent the companies key messages; a tree with branches and trunks covered with book pages was our tree of knowledge, a tree clad in hundreds of fairy lights represented our tree of light, a stunning white tree with decorated with hundreds of balloons was the tree of creativity. The rest of the garden themed table centres were a cross between enchanted woodland centre pieces and forest themed table centerpieces.
A specially made garden themed halo was our statement piece centerpiece that stood proud on tables around the room, woodland themed blossom tree table centres were made to create height and drama in the room. Stunning log table centres and cloche centerpieces were our low level table centres and what they lacked in height they made up for in impact and detail! The theme continued in the party room with stunning living walls and artificial stone walls for the band and a chill out space created for the guests. And as the song goes – Oh what a night.
Well what a night it was and what an event it was. Hours later, in true Cinderella style, Old Billingsgate was emptied and cleared by all the suppliers. We would like to thank all the suppliers who worked on this amazing event; @Rhubarb, @Metro_broadcast, @eventprofs and @OldBillingsgate for such great teamwork! Until the next time!
