Parties : An Italian Evening At The Museum

Last summer I received the brief from a client to plan and design an Italian, Dolce Vita, Ferrari themed, evening to remember at the Design Museum . Sounds fun right? It was! A lot of people think of Rebecca K. Events as a wedding planning only event business, but oh no, we plan so much more then that! This event was a fabulous evening to celebrate a private clients assistance with the opening of the Ferrari exhibition at the museum and truly a celebration of their friends, family and how important all of this was in their life. The theme was not to be all full of red and cars, but more of a festive evening honouring the history of the Ferrari company and family that my client has spent years researching. With that included the love of Italian music, Italian food, Italian drinks and well, I think we got it right!

We added a little party attire to the handsome waitstaff with red bow ties and suspenders serving Bianco Negronis and glasses of Prosecco throughout the evening. We had a sketch of Mr. Ferrari himself printed in gold foil on cocktail stirrers and the napkins throughout the evening had racing quotes and black and white images from clients archives. The little touches were great conversation pieces throughout the evening and some guests even saved them as souvenirs !

The Design Museum located in Kensington is such an amazing modern space in the city! We used the Atrium’s ground floor for our speeches and drinks area, the mezzanine for lounge seating and the first floor for the catering areas. The guests were able to roam in and out of the exhibition throughout the evening and the dj could be heard throughout, it was a party! We had the dj performing as well as a saxophonist who wandered around the guests to entertain the guests while they were mingling.

The flowers incorporated Italian touches of Amalfi lemons, olive branches, fresh rosemary and amazing latte coloured roses throughout the evening. They were a beautiful but not too flowery touch to the evening.

Can we discuss how fabulous the huge tree was behind the opera singers! LOVED this focal point for speeches and especially for when the singers surprised the guests with Italian songs throughout the evening. London- event -planner London - Event - Planner London - Wedding - Planner London - Event -Planner

There was PLENTY of Italian food for the evening, guests did not leave hungry. From fresh pastas, charcuterie, burrata to mini gelato cones, an espresso cart as guests left to the most amazing Tortellini en Brodo {originally from Ferrari’s hometown}, the food was certainly an Italian feast. London - Party - PlannerLondon - Party - Planner London - Event - Planner London- wedding - planner {Photos by Malcom Griffith}
