Beauty and Burgers…

9 Jul

Yes! Finally summer has arrived! We have our lovely long hot summer evenings, getting the BBQ out or simply sitting in the pub garden with a drink.  Fabulous.  I can’t not mention as well the heart stopping moment on Sunday when Murray won Wimbledon, the first time in 77 years that we’ve had a British champion.  And after winning gold at the Olympics last year as well, what a great moment for British Tennis.

The Purple Grape team have been busy this last week with a range of different events.  Merrill Lynch celebrated 4th July at Ripley’s Believe It or Not! London with some
themed canapés.  Including mini bagels, mini burgers, mini hot dogs and mini donuts – lots of mini’s in there. They also had a guided tour around Ripley’s and learnt about how it all started, about the man himself Mr Robert Ripley and some of the more bizarre artifacts that the Ripley’s walls contain.  Our staff looked great with their American flag hats and crisp white shirts too, they really added to the theming of the evening. Luckily we didn’t make them put on fake American accents!


We also had Sainsbury’s show casing their new range of beauty products that will be coming to their stores very soon.  This was held in the BB Bakery in Covent Garden, the bakery was transformed by Purple Grape into a Beauty Boutique Café for the day to celebrate the launch.  You could have your nails done, sample some of the products and also get a cup of tea and some cake for your trouble.

Well done to our Events Coordinator Becca Gibson for lots of praise from the client for her designs that decorated the walls of the bakery.
