Autumn 2014: Hens, Flowers, Treasure Hunts and Polaroids

Autumn 2014 was a time of squirreling and scheming for L&LG- storing up all our energy for the mad Christmas season ahead, but still making time for some more intimate dos here and there. We like these small events just as much as the big ones- often it gives us a chance to work much more closely with clients, and they feel more intimate and personal.

Beanie's Hen Do

In September we created a very small, personal 'pop up' experience for a tight-knit group of friends in celebration of one of them getting married and leaving the UK. They wanted something small, in honour of her, and something very 'British' to get the soon-to-be-ex-pat feeling very patriotic. And so, 'Beanie's Best of British Pop Up' was born.

We created a very intimate and entirely personal pop up restaurant for 10 in the Portable Joy caravan, hidden away in a secret location, and replete with dress up, games, and a very special food and drink offering, created by our friend and foodie collaborator Flo Hiller (Moro, Bonneville).

Mash 10th Birthday

Staffing specialists, Mash, came to us to help them pimp out their 10th birthday party. Originally we had one hell of an exciting event planned, but due to venue problems the event was slimmed down to something altogether more swish and streamlined but just as fun at Shoreditch House. We helped them decorate the venue with beautiful bouquets of red flowers (arranged by our very own Amy- who enjoyed getting up with the birds to head to the flower market) plus an exciting save the date video designed by Louise.

Private Company Parties

We also found the time to put together two stonking events for companies UsTwo and Shackleton Property. For the former this involved a very silly pop-up polaroid photobooth, and for the latter we took them on a tour of the area surrounding Brick Lane like no other.

Guests were sent a treasure hunt map the day before the event which took them on a weird and wonderful tour of the Brick Lane area, including a ride on a golden bus, a stint with a dodgy tour guide, stopping for a macaroon with a passerby, taking a selfie in a beigel shop and much much more. The night culminated in dinner, drinks and revelry in Disappearing Dining Club's tiny basement supper club Back in 5 Minutes. It was a lot of fun all round!

Coming next... It's Christmaaaassss.....
