Friends, Family and Great Times for The Ultimate Surprise Party!

Love a First Sight

We first met Katy at our Reset Yoga retreat back in January with Libby Limon. Katy fell in love with The Mowbray at first sight. With her husbands 40th on the horizon, she knew immediately it would be the perfect place to celebrate! Plans for the most wonderful surprise party had begun.

Styled to Perfection

From the beautiful Grazing Table menu to Trevor’s favourite tipple, we helped Katy plan a totally bespoke surprise party that Trevor would absolutely LOVE!

The Mowbray looked absolutely beautiful. Twinkly soft candlelight and beautiful spring blooms styled up the feasting table, with casual seating around the room. Mowbray Green and golden balloons and a huge ‘40’ lit the gift table, with an instax mini to snap away the night and capture great memories.

The Surprise!

We welcomed Trevor's friends and family from around the UK with a gorgeous fizz reception, holding tight for the imminent arrival of the birthday boy. Meanwhile, Katy and Trevor were making their way to what he thought would be a Supper Club... With guests under instruction to keep things on the low until Trevor appeared… We greeted him with his favourite ‘Stiff Upper Lip’ Cocktail and guided him through to the drapes for the big surprise! Totally stunned and overjoyed, the party was soon in full swing! Cocktails, feasting, dancing and a guest appearance from a saxophonist! A wonderful night to remember and a total joy to host.

A Few Words from Katy

“I attended the Yoga event at the Mowbray in January, I instantly fell in love with the place and knew that it was the perfect venue to celebrate my husbands 40th to host a surprise party. The attention to detail was exquisite and I made the booking that day.

My husband then went to an event at the Mowbray the week before the big surprise, and when I asked him how it was, he said “We must find an excuse to have a party here” I was worried at this point that a detail had slipped but when I saw his face on the night I knew I had pulled it off.

The party was beyond amazing, the ambience, the food and especially the staff and attention our guests received, people were commenting all night about the place. The staff listened to what I wanted and executed it. I feel privileged to be able to say we have had an event here and would not hesitate to recommend or even find another excuse at some point in the future to do it again. In the meantime we will mostly be found at Supper Clubs.”
