A black tie dinner party at a secret location for the ultimate surprise!

EVENT PLANNING & STYLING  |  40th Milestone Birthday
Annandale Homestead, Pigeon Bay

We planned and created this 40th birthday as a surprise for the birthday girl and her closest friends. The brief from her husband was it needed to be luxurious, secret and include accommodation. We booked the Homestead at Annandale and set the scene with invitations on boxed Moet piccolo bottles. Intrigued guests were greeted at a nearby location and escorted in convoy to Annandale. Arrival drinks were hosted at the pool, followed by the black tie event in the evening beginning with a mixologist creating signature drinks on the front lawn, and a leisurely trust the chef degustation dinner, on the expansive lawns at a botanical styled table under the magical ambience of festoon lighting. Chef Paul Jobin presented and explained each course, creating a very special experience, and interaction with the chef. Cocktails and dancing into the night, was the perfect end to this extraordinary milestone celebration.
