Hilton Hotels approached us to help them theme their grand launch of the Hilton Bournemouth. This was a brand new £60,000,000 project and the VIP launch was the chance to show this brand new location and it’s facilities to UK businesses, dignitaries and press.
Our role was to design, create and install themed areas within the event. The theming was based around the South Coast with a beach inspired Dessert station, New Forest themed Charcuterie and Cheese area and a Seafood live cooking demonstration. We worked alongside the Hilton Worldwide creative team of Chefs to create these special themed areas which were to be both functional and creative, allowing them to cook and serve their creations from.
The styling included over two tonnes of sand and two tonnes of wooden bark chippings. The ballroom is on the third floor, so this required some careful logistical planning. Also included was a four metre replica Oak tree, a full size Beach hut, giant deckchair, giant bucket and spade and lots of smaller touches such as wooden log slices specially prepared for serving from and a giant fresh fish ice tray.
Over 300 guests attended the event, the atmosphere was lively and everybody seem impressed with the theming and decor, especially the over sized large deck chair, where numerous guests posed for a photo. With great entertainment and delicious food, the night was a success and all the guests ended up at Level 8IGHT, The Sky Bar for an after party.
