As the winter settles into London I am being asked more then ever about how to throw a party that can scare away the winter blues, so here we go BUT as always I look forward to hearing what your ideas are.
If you are having an event at your home or at a venue these ideas should help create the right mood and magic. I often advise my clients to rent out private rooms from restaurants. These restaurants often offer an economical alternative to jazzing up your event with just a few party essentials that come standard like furniture and a commercial kitchen. Central and Co, a lovely little restaurant in London’s Soho district, is one of those gems in the London restaurant scene that radiates charm ( ask about the space under the restaurant http://centralandco.com/private-hire). In order to create the sleek, modern affair I often use standard concepts, lets call it *Premierpartyparaphernalia ( Trademark pending). Surfaces of mirrors and anything blue and see through make a perfect marriage of form and function for winter celebrations as they create the illusion of even more action and energy ( think about it, as you literally see more people throughout the room) but at the same time, the combination of clear and reflective materials instantly make the room feel more open and create a theme of fire and ice. So we need to create ice-like surfaces and we can use blue fabrics for this while spicy, flavorful tapas, and hot latin music will raise the pulse and temperature of the room.
