An Exclusive Private Dinner in Suffolk

by Lettice

An Exclusive Private Dinner in Suffolk

Set in a stunning Grade 1 listed private residence in Suffolk, Lettice had the pleasure of catering this exclusive private dinner party.

Guests were chauffeured to the house and brought onto the poolside terrace where they were served Gusbourne sparkling wine. A live jazz band played while guests enjoyed a lovely summers evening and ate whole stuffed olives, lenge and grissini.

Later, the ballroom and saloon were opened for the dinner which was lit by coloured tapered candles in the family’s candelabras. Handmade linen tablecloths and bespoke glassware adorned the tables, Lettice sourced each element to complement the history and grandeur of the house and ensure it was a night to remember.

 

The Menu:

All ingredients were sourced from local producers in the area of East Anglia to ensure the food was delicious, sustainable and the highest quality.

“Thank you so so much for all your hard work, catering, brilliant organising and smilingness over the weekend.  It was all a huge success and it was a great pleasure to work with you and your team, who were also wonderful – there was nothing from our point of view that we would change it all seemed to go so well. Once more a huge thank you and very much look forward to working with you again.”
