The Garden Museum

The Garden Museum, ‘one of London best small museums’ says The Daily Telegraph.

Situated by the River Thames and next to Lambeth Palace, The Garden Museum provides the perfect location for wedding receptions, corporate events and dinners.

The Museum’s garden provides a wonderful escape from the hustle and bustle of central London and is an ideal setting for a pre-dinner drinks reception or a barbeque and Adams Catering Hire continues to provide equipment for the many Caterers recommended by the Museum

The Garden’s focal point is the beautiful 17th Century inspired knot garden, which creates the perfect romantic setting for wedding photography.

The Thames Revival celebrates vintage glamour, classic boats and the golden days of sailing.

For one weekend only, enjoy the opportunity to step back in time by entering St Katharine Docks to marvel at a full display of historic vessels, and get into the spirit of things by dressing to suit your favourite maritime era. Admire hearty fishing smacks, rub gunwales with the finest racing yachts, and hear the tooting of a steam tug as it punctuates the silky purrings of upriver motor launches.

In Centre Basin there are all sorts of things to watch, from a ‘Row of War’ to boating demonstrations. Ashore, you can find a variety of maritime stalls displaying traditional things such as boat-building skills, or take the time to soak up the atmosphere in one of the many bars and restaurants with waterside view.

Two boats in particular have made epic voyages to arrive at the Thames Festival and should not be missed. The Fryderyk Chopin, the biggest sailing boat of its type in the world, will be moored at St Katharine’s Pier having set sail from Poland in June. And artist Filip Jonker will sail into port from the Netherlands in De Furie, the first man to make the journey in a tugboat made entirely from cardboard.

Stalls and activities include the following:

Try an Oyster Stall

Wood Carving Stall

Paper Boat Race Stall

Rope Making Stall

Deck Quoits

Revival Info Stall

Vintage Clothing Stall

Make a Statement with the Crystal Ice Chair

What a fantastic looking chair. Guaranteed to provoke comments like ‘WoW‘ at your next event.

This chair came onto the event scene about a year ago and has proved to be an outstanding winner in every catagory. From a smart summer wedding to a nightclub, the crystal ice chair can provide the look thats needed to look fresh and awe inspiring. As with many chairs the seat pads are inter changeable from ivory faux leather, to a large choice of plain colours to match your theming.

The chairs are injection moulded from a polycarbonate resin which is incredibly strong, yet it allows a certain amount of flex to give added comfort compared to wooden and metal alternatives. They are also
completely translucent which means their appearance can be transformed when subjected to different lighting effects
  • Made from 100% recyclable materials so they’re greener than green
  • Immensely strong and durable (practically bulletproof)
  • UV resistant which means they don’t discolour in sunlight
  • Seat Pads are interchangeable
  • Appearance changes under coloured light
  • 100% waterproof so they can be used outdoors (not the seat pads though)

 

Dress them up with a few simple flowers to look fresh and clean or put a spotlight on  to jazz it up and make it shine. Its your choice, but whatever you do its sure to outshine its nearest neighbour the gilt banqueting chair. So if you need chair hire and you want something to talk about, call Adams Catering Hire, and get the chair that dreams are made of.

 

 

Charity Hog Roast for Help for Heroes

“It’s about the blokes, our men and women of the Armed Forces. It’s about Derek, a rugby player who has lost both his legs, it’s about Carl whose jaw is wired up so he has been drinking through a straw. It’s about Richard who was handed a mobile phone as he lay on the stretcher so he could say goodbye to his wife. It’s about Ben, it’s about Steven and Andy and Mark, it’s about them all. They are just blokes but they are our blokes; they are our heroes. We want to help our heroes.”

I met up with Manny, from Mannys Marquees at my house last night to measure up the garden for the marquee his Company are kindly sponsoring for my party on Sunday. I looked at his portfolio of events he has provided marquees for and he some some pretty impressive photos. I’m going to use the marquee for the Bar Area and fill it with lovely scented candles and my crystal chairs.

Adrian at Simply Fine Foods who are doing the catering are giving me a smashing bar to make it really look smart, its the perspex and metal type with a pink lit up area. I am looking forward to this weekend immensely. Adrian is cooking up a great array of food for my guests and I have also arranged a chocolate fountain to finish it all off.

I also met up with Kim Rix from Your London Wedding Planner today and she was telling me how she likes to dabble in photography, so guess what? I invited her along to take some semi-professional shots of the day.  So my photos to put on our site should really make a show.

My guest list is getting longer and longer and more people want to come. What do I do? But it is all for ‘Help for Heroes’ and I am hoping the weather is kind to me. Everyone has said they are looking forward to the day as my parties are always such good fun. I am getting so big headed.
