Back for it’s second year, Palace Pearls of Wisdom in collaboration with the ever-beautiful Banqueting House saw guests enjoy a jam-packed day of inspiration earlier this month. Hosting some of London’s finest industry professionals, we wanted to give back – to provide a day solely focused on self-growth and care.
Throughout the afternoon, guests were welcomed with so many picture-perfect moments starting off with the catering…
“Pearl & Pear wanted to create a fun, vibrant, colourful, on trend eating and drinking experience which appealed to the mainly female audience and was just a little bit….well…Zaffy! We hit upon a Hoké Poké station which combined healthy, colourful and zingy Polynesian flavours in a theatrical, interactive way, allowing guests to choose between multi coloured tacos or fresh salad bowls which they could dress, garnish and adorn to their hearts content. To balance the zero carb approach we also circulated meltingly soft Pork belly with pigs skin noodles and vegan Crispy tofu buddah bowls and offered a tongue in cheek “Club Tropicana” dessert station where Bart, our pastry chef served Halo Haloto order – a delicious combination of shaved ice, sweetened condensed milk and fresh fruit.
Guests then made their way up the extraordinary staircase designed by Royal florist, Philippa Craddock. We believe first impressions are important so this wild and wonderful dressing of the staircase was just perfection.
“The Banqueting House has elements of gold woven throughout and it made the perfect venue to launch The ‘ Gold Forest’. We created a walkway with an eclectic range of gold trees in varying heights which gave an artistic and fun nature to the display. The walkway was designed to be an experience and working with WowGrass we achieved something really quite special.”
Pearl & Pear wanted to introduce the guests to a mix of both modern and more traditional items of furniture within the set up at Banqueting House. Combining Locate To Create with Juno Hire added real personality and character to the event.
Guests were then indulged with two hours of learning new skills below are a list of the workshops.
As we all know, the event industry is a fast-paced wonderful world however it has also been voted the 5th most stressful job to have. On that note, Palace Pearls of Wisdom discussed all things wellbeing – focusing on work-life balance, goal setting and reaching those goals.
