20 Apr What a swell party this is!!!
We were delighted when Anita from Decor Events asked us to help her to create a fantastic backdrop and co-ordinate her husband Carmelo’s 40th birthday party. Carmelo had absolutely no idea that Anita was planning a birthday party and his face was one of shock when he was led into the Jacobean style oak-panelling dining room of Rydes Hill school in Guildford to be greeted by his friends and family. The school was built in the 18th century and proved to be a superb venue for any celebration.
The catering was put on by Olivio’s which is one of Guildford’s finest Italian restaurants and comes highly recommended. After the food was served the guests and Carmelo were treated to The Rat Pack singing waiters who transformed effortlessly into character,Jonny’s role as ‘Orga’ the waiter was flawless as he spoke several European languages if challenged and he fitted in perfectly with the genuine catering staff. Then the singing waiters show started when they burst into the famous Rat Pack melodies creating an atmosphere of fun and humour that built over the duration of the evening. The performance finale of ‘That’s Amore’ went down a storm with the guests.
Carmelo is a keen gym fanatic and his cake reflected both his love exercise and his dietary supplements. The cake was beautifully designed by Simply Cakes in Weybridge.
