ALPINE CHIC THEMED 40TH BIRTHDAY Winter marquee extension to the house, canapés, dinner, live band For 70 guests

Brief was a memorable party for some special friends with a twist of après ski. We set the scene with snow machines and yodeller on arrival. The reception area extended into the garden with a pure white lined, heated marquee built against snug against the open plan living space. The alpine bar and Austrian flair bar champion served snowball martinis, fig and apple old fashions, craft beer from mont blanc and French vodka poured down ice luges. The dining area was dressed in all white with ice chairs and table centres of raw wood, pine and white frosting. After dinner the band Après ski performed in front of an indoor fire table.
