21st birthday party marquee sketch themed


To mark their daughter’s 21st birthday our clients wanted to throw a spectacular marquee party for 80 guests at their Buckinghamshire home. We were asked to take our inspiration from Sketch, an amazingly quirky restaurant in Mayfair that is as much about art and décor as it is about food.

The Solution

Having a marquee as a blank canvas gave us plenty of opportunity to really go to town with the theme. The interior was lined with black cloth and we installed large wall sections printed with leaf patterns. At the entrance of the marquee there were also two flower walls covered with faux rose foliage and the colourful and flamboyant floral theme extended across the table settings – each table featured a stunning floral centrepiece. Colour was further carried through in the lighting scheme, which created a vibrant atmosphere.

Outdoor lighting was also used to great effect. Guests arrived to discover the house and garden lit up and this created a great sense of anticipation as they approached the marquee along a walkway. Welcome drinks and canapes were served before guests took their seats for a beautifully presented three-course dinner. Following that, our DJ got everyone on their feet and dancing for the rest of the evening. And the celebrations didn’t end there. For the birthday girl and guests that stayed overnight, we arranged a special breakfast the following morning.
