The Ultimate Street Party – The Savoy Diamond Jubilee

We love The Savoy hotel. The black and gold Beaufort Bar is one of  my all time favourite bars in London – yes it’s that gold obsession again! We were delighted when we were asked to work on The Savoy’s street party to celebrate the Diamond Jubilee, held in their Iconic Art Deco Forecourt. (As an aside I so want to do a dinner in the forecourt, in the glow of that gorgeous neon sign… as well as a black & gold dinner in the beaufort bar. But that’s for another day…)

For the Jubilee lunch we made luxurious rosettes and whimsical paper party favours – moustaches, glasses, lips and crowns for guests to play with. A table scape of blue, red and white flowers and berries gave  a botanical, patriotic feeling. Blue delphiniums, royal blue hydrangea, white stock & sweet peas and blue and white nigella were punctuated by miniature strawberry plants for an edible  dash of red.

The Lalique Fountain filled with Bombay Sapphire was exquisite. There’s nothing quite like a drinkable fountain of Gin, now, is there? But we have to admit, the corgis stole the show. Absolute cuteness!

Now when’s the next street party?
