Ripley’s turns 5 Believe It or Not!

13 Sep

Last week saw Ripley’s Believe It or Not! London open their doors to clients, colleagues, associates and industry partners to help them celebrate turning 5 in the capital. And being their preferred caterer we were more than happy to help with this, we do love to theme our offers to guests.

Jack Daniel’s Tea Cup Cocktails

As they were turning 5 a children’s party (with an adult twist) was a must.  With help from Event Prop Hire there were giant tea cups, giant lollipop hills and not to mention the giant bucket of popcorn.  It was a shame there wasn’t actual popcorn inside, but we did however provide savoury flavoured popcorn to guests.  With flavours like peanut satay, goats cheese and mozzarella and tomato.  There were also little jellies in paint pots and goats cheese ice cream cones sprinkled with walnuts and aged balsamic.

While guests were having a good look through Ripley’s wonderful galleries seeing the unbelievable exhibits we were serving them with some scrummy bowl food. Panko coated fish fingers with courgette fries, mini mac and cheese with asparagus and red peppers and finally Coca Cola duck with fragrant rice, steamed bok choi and grilled pineapple.

Ripley’s amazing entertainments team were out in full force, with characters like Robert Ripley himself, his butler, explorers, a policeman and lots more too! They told the guests their stories and showed us their moves on the dance floor while DJ Matt Maurice kept the dance classics coming through.

Lastly for dessert we served crème brulee is lipstick tubes! Who didn’t love to dress up when they were little, I know we did.  Or would you have been tempted by the Hamburger or present cake pops? The cake pops are always a favourite, some can’t help but have two!

A thoroughly fun evening had by all.
