Life begins at 50

Celebrating your 50th birthday should be done in style, and what better way to do it than with a huge party in a tipi?

That’s what one client wanted when he came to us to organise his big 5-0… he had a very strong vision of what he wanted; vintage styling, tipis, a live band and a flash mob choir. “Absolutely no problem” we told him, and got to work!

We found the perfect countryside location for the party where there was plenty of room for three tipis, and most importantly, no neighbours to complain about noise! Bundles of wild flowers, orchard crates, candles and fairy lights created the vintage feeling he wanted, and we even stacked blankets up for chilly guests who came without their coats…

The guests arrived by classic bus and were welcomed with a choice of cocktails, handpicked by the birthday boy. Served in jam jars with paper straws, they looked absolutely delicious!

Tipi Party Cocktails and Wine

Once everyone had arrived and had a couple of cocktails (or more) the flash mob choir started their set. They’d cunningly blended in with the rest of the guests, so as soon as they started singing, nobody expected it; they were a real show stopper!

Wood-fired pizza’s were served from a specially adapted Land Rover and the live Motown band got everybody dancing inside the tipi. Even though there were log fires and blankets to keep everybody warm, I don’t think they were needed with the amount of boogying going on!

It was a fantastic party and the feedback from the guests was amazing; if this was his 50th, I can’t wait to see what he’s got in mind for his 60th!
