A Secret Garden Party in the heart of London

A Secret Garden Party in the heart of London

June traditionally heralds the start of  Garden Party season here at Lettice, and last week saw us return to one of our favourite gardens in London, The Montague Street Garden. We were called upon to cater for 250 guests with a delicious canape menu and a selection of summery cocktails.

Our client wanted their event to be elegant and summery with the focus on good food, refreshing beverages and the beautiful setting that was their stunningly landscaped private garden.



“We hosted a private garden party for our tenants and leaseholders earlier this summer.  Lettice’s event management experience guided us in hosting a successful evening with over 150 guests catered with canapés commented upon by our guests.  Lettice efficiently managed the setting up, the waiting staff during the evening and very importantly, the clearing up at the end of the evening.  A very smooth operation, thank you. I have no hesitation in recommending Lettice.”
