A star-studded, natural history inspired launch party to celebrate the re-opening of the great Hintze Hall at the Natural History Museum and welcome Hope the whale to her new home.
The high-profile launch event was attended by over 800 guests, who were treated to an evening of extraordinary food & drink, beautiful floristry and the ultimate party atmosphere, all complementing the incredible deep-sea centre piece. As guests explored the space they were met with indulgent food stalls reflecting the museum’s latest installations.
An ‘under the sea’ seafood extravaganza in honour of Hope herself, covered in coral with dishes representing the oceanic theme; a dinosaur-inspired pudding stall with a show-stopping edible chocolate smoking volcano filled with chocolate and chilli lava, raspberry lava, chocolate soil and nitro dark rocks; and an all-veggie ‘giraffes’ playground’ centred on the museum’s towering giraffe specimen. For the more adventurous diner there were also moving stalls of creepy crawlies and insects – all wonderfully delectable.
As always we enjoyed working with some of our industry favourites including Mary Jane Vaughan, event concept and The NHM events team. Thank you for all being fabulous! Beautiful photography by Chris Orange.
