Event Affairs News-Zine Edition 18 - Page 32

Celebrating 70 in Style When our client, Vicky, asked us to help their family celebrate a special milestone, we were absolutely excited to sink our teeth into the brief. Being from the UK, she was unable plan the event herself. Bespoke experiential events are close to our hearts and a specialty we offer to local and international clients. Our team got together and created a beautiful itinerary, full of activities that Vicky’s 70-year-old father would love. The two-day event began with a stunning lunch and wine tasting at La Petite Ferme in Franschhoek. We set up a table under a big tree. The setting was relaxed and scenic. The party was then shuttled to Haute Cabriere, where the wine tasting continued. Dinner was served at The French Connection Bistro and our guests were dropped at their luxurious villas at La Petite Dauphine. The following morning, the family was transported to Boschendal for more wine tasting. (The birthday boy really loves his wine.) A delicious lunch was then served at the eclectic Werf Restaurant. The family ended off their celebrations with a walk 32 in the gorgeous gardens. We received glowing feedback from our client, which makes our job an absolute pleasure. Our experiential team loves putting together personalised itineraries for guests. If you can imagine it, we can make it happen. Speak to us for your next experiential event! Helpful tips when planning your next experiential experience: DO: Get some beautiful flowers made up by a florist for the table if your celebration is at a restaurant. It really makes the occasion feel more special and personal. DO: Get a shuttle to transport you and your guests. Not only is it safer but it maintains the vibe for the day DON’T: Choose a complicated route. Keep your destinations within close proximity of your accommodation so you don’t waste precious celebrating time in the car. DON’T: Select too many destinations as you will end up rushing. Choose two or three at most, so you can relax and enjoy your time at each one.
