Theme / Mykonos Beach House
Guest count / 262
Recap / Hunky lifeguard perched on a 7ft tall chair at the entrance. Your name was checked off the list by bombshells in white one-piece swimsuits & sarongs, blue EAT branded wristband applied, and you entered into the main space with mandatory photo in the beachy vignette. A 7ft by 9f decal of a beach in Greece was added to the windows with beach chair, palms and plush pillows.
Nautical-attired bartenders were positioned at either end of the bars while a massive Mediterranean grazing station was in the centre encouraging guests to feast on freshly-sliced prosciutto, tapas, and lemon chicken skewers.
You had the option of sampling the limoncello, a glass of rosé or one of the many signature cocktails featuring ouzo and Malfy gin. Twenty feet of purple wisteria hung from the rafters with the soft floral scent wafting through the air.
A grassy backdrop with 120 champagne glasses defined the prosecco room where you could order – you guessed it – prosecco! And other bubbly variations with blood orange juice and raspberry purée. A dessert station of exquisitely tailored macarons & truffles from Delysées satisfied the sweet tooth for many that walked by.
The ‘glass box’ boardroom was the picture perfect postcard photo opp we like to call ‘balls deep’ with 500 white & blue beach balls and SoPro Studios snapping the ideal gif. Guests were also encouraged to fill out their own Mykonos postcard to send their friends boasting their visit, which Eatertainment later mailed out. A great keepsake to receive a few days post-party!
Lexx Decibel and Rick from Spectrum Agency were playing through the kitchen / boardroom and in the back beach area. The kitchen featured a seafood station with jumbo shrimp, ceviche, and oysters on ice blocks. The back alley was a Mykonian beach house with sleek white rattan furniture, seagrass rugs covering a sandy ground – yes, sand was brought in! A colourful fringe backdrop with gold gemstone peacocks provided more picture possibilities for those adventurous souls.
