A Uniquely Exclusive Experience at The Ritz & 2017 Collection Debut.
Last month I was delighted to collaborate on a stunning event at London's iconic Ritz Hotel. Held in the exquisite Marie Antoinette suite, this very glamorous party celebrated the launch of Unique Cakes by Yevnig's 2017 luxury wedding cake collection. Working with Yevnig and some of the industry's finest suppliers, we created an enchanted setting befitting the hotel's Louis XVI inspired interiors.
The Marie Antoinette suite is like walking into a jewel box, and worthy of the french Queen herself. Taking inspiration from this, wedding and event planner Rula Komodromos, who has an exceptional eye for detail, drew together all the elements needed to create an exceptional event.
The suite itself inspired the design for the evening. Pretty, delicate and unashamedly feminine, Yevnig drew on the colours and interior decor for her cake designs. I complemented these with gilded vases and epergnes filled with romantic arrangements of hydrangeas, roses, ranunculus and stocks. Almost as good enough to eat as the cake (but not quite)!
Talking of cake, guests were treated to an audience with Marie Antoinette herself! Now we know that she never actually said those words for which she has become infamous, but her attendance was a delightful addition to the evening.
Champagne, exquisite food, cake, flowers, decor, lighting, music, entertainment and sophisticated company combined to make a wonderful event. I even got the chance to dress up too, which made a lovely change, because once I've set up the flowers I've usually left before the party even starts!
