A private Christmas countryside soirée

by Lettice

A private Christmas countryside soirée

Lettice’s luxury party planners kicked off the festive season with a beautiful Christmas party for a private client, set within the rolling Surrey hills. We called upon the services of one of our favourite suppliers, the Raj Tent Club, to erect a stunning Indian canvas tent, complete with starry ceiling, in the grounds of the clients country home. Guests enjoyed a champagne reception in the company of a fantastic jazz band, followed by a buffet supper in the magical Raj Tent to the sounds of a DJ. The night ended with a sensational firework display and a round of Lettice extra special mulled wines served in steaming mugs and topped with cinnamon sticks.

Lettice styling: The stunning setting of the Raj tents called for little additional decoration but we carried the theme through in to our bar dressing, draping the front with beautiful Rajasthani tapestries. We reflected the jewel tones of the tent in our rainbow drinks menu and rich food garnishes of colourful flowers and gold dusted desserts.
