Out of Africa – Themed Birthday Party

Posted on: April 7th, 2015 by Charlotte

We do love a themed party here at Papillon Events and this Out of Africa birthday party was no exception.  The party was a combined celebration to commemorate one family’s respective birthdays, which included a 16th, 18th, 21st and 50th birthday just outside Henley on Thames in Oxfordshire.

300 party animals were in full swing as they enjoyed an array of cocktails and canapés in the bar area of the marquee, before heading through to the raised dining area for a delicious African themed menu.

We had great fun designing the party and producing a fun, yet stylish theme, which was threaded through all elements of the party. From giraffe print seat covers and menu cards to animal print lighting projections on the marquee floor, animal cake pops and stunning African themed flowers it really was a roaring success!

Even the front of the house got in on the action and was awash with animal print.

From the marquee, design & lighting effects, themed menu & cocktail selection to the floral decoration and music, Papillon Events organised every last detail from start to finish to create a stunning event. Don’t just take our word for it…’s what the client thought.

“We set you a difficult challenge: a multi-generational birthday celebration for two 50 year olds, a 21 year old, an 18 year old and a 16 year old! No pressure then!! But what a truly amazing party you created for us. Guests of all ages and backgrounds were totally blown away. From the dramatic lighting of the house to when they walked into the marquee, and from the wonderful flowers to the log filled braziers glowing into the night.  Many of our friends commented that it was simply the best party they had ever been too – and we agree! You really captured the spirit of the Out of Africa theme. The attention to detail, both large and small was miraculous and the fact that you made it all run so smoothly on the night meant we had the most fantastic stress-free time. We are so grateful for everything you did and will not work with anyone else but you and your team in the future.” Humphrey, Nicola, Jack, Oli and Lucy, Henley on Thames, Oxon
