The 'ffitch Arms' 50th Birthday Party

This traditional British theme created the perfect setting for a party with friends and family, it was fully personalised according to our clients exact wishes

Brief:

To create something spectacular for an upcoming 50th birthday party

Solution:

Transforming the family home into a fully functioning pub, for one night only. This traditional British theme created the perfect setting for a party with friends and family, and was fully personalised according to the clients exact wishes.

As always, attention to detail was paramount. The transformation turned garden, kitchen and living room into ‘The ffitch Arms’, bringing in a genuine pub bar, spirit taps, fruit machine and all the world’s pork scratchings! Theming was completed with bespoke beer mats, hanging baskets and pub games.

Along with traditional bar snacks guests enjoyed street food from some of London’s top vendors, including the famous Bill or Beak, who served up slowly braised duck and pork with a homemade smoked paprika dressing, topped off with a Japanese pickled leek and buttermilk mayo, and duck and pork with a Vietnamese dressing, a coriander, chilli and mint salad, and tempura shallots. Also on offer was food by pop-up The Pickled Fork, who served up a classic pub favourite – Cumberland Sausage, mash and rosemary gravy.

The party proved a great success with the ffitch family and their guests, who celebrated at the ffitch Arms long into the night!

I was absolutely delighted from the moment of the first briefing to saying goodbye (two days after the party) by Beth Carter and her team. I knew the theme that I wanted and the way they understood that concept and encapsulated it throughout the event was amazing. The attention to detail was excellent and throughout the event they were in total control in a completely calm manner. It is the first time I have truly and honestly enjoyed my own party! Thank you so much for making my husband's 50th a definite one off, you are all a pleasure to work with.
