Turning 18 is a big deal in Singapore. Seen as an adult in the eyes of the law and more importantly, in our opinion, legal to drink. We had the opportunity to organize a party to celebrate our client turning 18! The requirement was quite simple, just go all out.
The location of the party was in our client’s place, a private compound which was quite spacious. We had a lot of room to plan where the assorted activities could be held. First up was the main area. It was where the food, drinks and dance floor were located. We first laid out the high tables and high stools at the back of the room near the food and bar area. It was to provide the guests with adequate area to enjoy the various offerings of the night. At the front of the main area was the dance floor, right in front of the DJ. The DJ with his setup was flanked by 2 speakers, providing the guests with EDM tracks through the night. Surrounding the room were mood lightings and moving lights, accompanying the DJ’s music. Additionally the tables were decorated with not only the standard menus, but also candles and jars of flowers to add to the mood.
At the second main area, we had the live band area which we added high tables and stools behind, with the band positioned in front serenading the crowd. We also set up beam lights and moving lights which were focused on the band as they were the other entertainers for the night. It was also the cake cutting area, hence the lightings to help setup for the pictures taken by the photographers!
The third area was the welcome area. Situated near the main door, it was a huge space which was turned into a photo shoot area. A backdrop of balloons were placed which the birthday girl took photos with her guests. At the nearby corridor passageway, we laid down rose petals on the side with candles to illuminate the pathway as the house would be dimly lit for the party.
Dinner for the day was a customized menu created up by Divine Palate which involved some premium ingredients including caviar! They were also able to utilize the island kitchen to do a live demonstration of them cooking. The food was exceptional and we are looking forward to the next time we work with them to experience their other creations!
Cocktails as usual were done by us where we customized two different drinks for her. The first was Violet Regal where it included Blackcurrant, Lychee, Yuzu and Gin which was garnished with flower petals and lychee spheres. The colors were of the drink, a deep violet hue suited the color theme of the party. The next drink was the Barely Legal which included Passionfruit, Brown Sugar, Lim, Mint, Club Soda and Rum. It is a twist of the classic Mojito, with the current one giving it a slightly sour kick. Our client also provided us with champagnes and wines to serve to her guests.
It was an awesome party which the Mixes from Mars team was proud to be a part of. Our most sincere thanks to our client for having us and to our partners for working together to create such a beautiful birthday party. We are already looking forward to the next birthday bash to organize, till next time, cheers!
