Fabulous birthday party at home!


Estelle Phillips is one of our regular clients, so we were totally delighted when she asked us to do the catering for her birthday party at home. We knew it was going to be an utterly fabulous affair and the styling of the marquee certainly didn’t disappoint. We were there to make sure that the food, service and drinks matched the luxurious tone of the evening.
