Last week was the official launch of 101 Embankment, a brand-new Grade A office space with arguably the best views in town. With a select guest list of 120 people and an empty top floor 17,500 sq ft in size, our brief was to transform this space into a VIP launch party. With Chinese New Year the following weekend, we decided to have some fun and incorporate the theme into the event.
The space before and after
Guests were welcomed by Chinese themed fire breathers and a giant golden dragon as they walked up the walkway decorated with Chinese lanterns to the impressive entrance.
A Chinese New Year menu was designed and catered by Harvey Nichols, guests were offered a Feng Shui Collins on arrival and a selection of canapes were provided including Tiger prawn wontons and Crispy duck, cashew lettuce wraps.
The rest of the evening was filled with entertainment by our talented Saxophonist, DJ and amazing iPad magician; we even themed our mini golf course for guests who wanted to take part in some healthy competition!
To keep an exclusive and intimate feel we sectioned off the space with artificial hedge dividers, which provided some greenery to the bare room. Following the Chinese New Year theme the room was lit with atmospheric red spot lighting and was filled with red and gold LED furniture, Bar and DJ Booth.
As a gift for guests to take away we provided bespoke 101 Embankment branded fortune cookies in Chinese style take away boxes which went down a treat!
We love working on events where the space is a blank canvas for us to work with, it’s great to see a venue transform and exceed client expectations. The Chinese New Year theme created a fun unique twist that made the event even more memorable!
