Culture Crush

Culture Crush

It seems like everyone is on holidays at the moment, doesn’t it?

Whether it’s basking in the endless sunsets with an Aperol Spritz in hand on a beach in Italy or charging the powdery slopes in New Zealand, social media is awash with friends and strangers enjoying dreamy exotic locations. FOMO, anyone?

But before you hit up Flight Centre, why not check out some of our new international packages for a mini vacation…without the long airport delays!

Inspired by some of our favourite places for holiday (or at least, in our dreams!) the packages offer some mix-and-match options to surprise and delight your guests at your next event. No passport needed!

This month’s cultural crushes:

TURKEY

What we love: the food, the colours, the vibrancy!

Event tip: serve a big shared selection of stuffed vegetables, pilaf, doner and koftas with plenty of pickles and yoghurt. Burn incense or add some frankincense, oregano and clove essential oil to a diffuser to set the scene!

Package: Embrace the bold and bright with our Middle Eastern Infusion package.

JAPAN

What we love: the humble hospitality, the landscape and the big city skyline.

Event tip: offer a selection of green teas, jasmine tea and herbal teas in beautiful teapots and a ceramic mug for each guest. Delicate floral arrangements and silk cushions will add a luxurious touch.

Package: our Asian Occasion package is perfect for a special morning tea or an all-night festival!

FRANCE

What we love: the flowers, the beautiful architecture and of course…the romance!

Event tip: champagne, champagne, champagne! For some gorgeous rosy alternatives, sparkling grapefruit juice, iced hibiscus tea or strawberry-infused mineral water emulate the colour of luuuurve. Pop on the ‘Amelie’ movie soundtrack, et voila. 

Package: the Midnight in Paris package is a deluxe curation of classic French style pieces for an event that is tres bien!

 

ENGLAND

What we love: the music, the fashion and the heady juxtaposition of traditional versus modern. 

Event tip: mix it up! Gin and tonic…served in dainty teacups. A sit-down dinner…for fish and chips wrapped in newspaper. An acoustic musician…covering The Spice Girls, Arctic Monkeys and The Darkness. 

Package: an ode to England, our Streets of London package is full of iconic pieces with a touch of difference!  

We are here to add inspiration to your next event. Give us a call, shoot through an email or pop into the showroom to chat parties, conferences and celebrations.
