A Glamorous Gatsby Event at ATP
This week we are showcasing one of the year’s most spectacular examples of event theming and styling. If you thought ‘Gatsby’ has had its time as an event theme – think again. Glamorous, sophisticated and executed with precision, this recent event at Australian Technology Park (ATP), is an amazing example of nailing a theme. Featuring a number of the industry’s most experienced suppliers, all working together to create a truly amazing event, we know you’re going to enjoy checking out this event showcase…
Hosting the event in the Exhibition Hall of ATP gave Event Planner, Noel Nassar Events, the space to get creative – hanging drapes, screens and 35 stunning chandeliers – including a 5m x 5m show-stopper over the dance floor – the overall production would have made Baz Luhrmann proud.
The first part of the evening saw the 850 guests congregate in a cocktail area with two bars, a five piece jazz band and an area that included a powder lounge for people to touch up their makeup.
Under the direction of Event Planner & Stylist, Noel Nassar, Decorative Events and Exhibitions and Staging Connections assisted in putting the overall look together. Stunning flower displays were created by Maria Lush and the exquisite chandeliers were provided by Chandeliers To Die For.
The exquisite menu, created by Gastronomy, included delicate canapés to start, oysters served on a bed of ice, a four course custom dinner menu, cheese boards with rosemary infused Manchego and to finish – coffee and petit four stations.
The highlight of the menu was possibly the whole spatchcock deboned, roasted and stuffed with mushroom and parsley. On the plate it looked like a whole bird, but when the guests cut into them there were no bones, just a beautiful herbed mushroom stuffing. A show stopper with unbelievable flavours. Yum!
Over the course of the evening, guests were entertained by Australian singer, Tina Arena, a 70 piece band, 30 drummers and a string quartet.
The event concluded with a magnificent fireworks display.
This event really pushed the boundaries of event production and styling. The combined efforts of all the suppliers and the venue was phenomenal – all involved should be very proud of the results – we love it!
