Dreamy 18th Birthday Party

Dreamy 18th Birthday Party

With the last of long summer evenings coming to an end, Lettice catered a dreamy 18st birthday party in North London.

Set in a private home, the marquee was set in the garden and strung with festoons of fairy lights. From the trees hung lanterns and hidden in the rose bushes were our hurricane candles, setting the scene for a magical evening.

The table was set with pure white linen and  vintage floral plates, each one with its own unique design. The glassware was suitably pink and the napkins were rolled and adorned with perfect pink bows. The host had made her own place settings with pressed flowers from the garden and each guest had a cashmere blanket to keep warm after the sun had set.

Client Testimonial

“Thank you Holly and team for giving my daughter her dream 18th birthday party.  All the stress was taken out of our hands and yet we were involved enough so that it felt personal.  You completely “got” what she wanted.  Nothing wasn’t thought of. And the food was absolutely delicious– what a joy to have leftovers carefully packaged up for us!   I never want to do a party without you again!”
