The New Craze – High Tea

It seems to be popping up everywhere, in fact, we are booked out for months on end with this new style of function – high tea!

When asking your bridesmaids to be a part of your bridal party, you can’t just do it via text! It needs to be memorable, incredible, and in the right setting that will amplify that special moment forever. Or what about when you introduce the in-laws to each other and discuss the finer details of the wedding?

Picture this – an intimate setting of scones, savouries, champagne and tea with cute personalised stationary for each guest, flowers and plants surrounding you to make the table settings even more picturesque. What more could you ask for when selecting those special people to be part of your dream wedding?

High teas are the perfect setting to start the planning, who could resist an afternoon tea with delicious light food and a cheeky beverage? At Lincoln of Toorak we have been consistently asked for high tea requests, proving the new trend is in full swing!

How to Plan the Ideal University Event

It’s that time of year again – back to uni! With a long and busy year ahead, it’s important to start planning your university events early. But with so many things to think about, this is no easy task.

A key point to remember when planning a function is that every one is different, and should be tailored to the guests’ (and host’s) needs. This is a crucial factor for success.

Networking lunches and career nights are a great way to help students get the edge they need to further their careers and motivate their study. It’s often difficult to get the balance right for these types of events. Some can be too formal, leaving students little opportunity to socialise with industry professionals, whilst others can be poorly structured with confusing messages about the purpose of the event.

Having access to the proper facilities and services needed to run your event makes all the difference. Introductory speeches are a great way to welcome guests and explain the aim of the event, while information sessions can be easily handled through the use of:

  • Wireless microphones
  • A lectern
  • Projection equipment

Also important is providing a warm but professional atmosphere. This can be achieved with:

  • Cocktail-style finger food
  • Appropriate drinks menus
  • Neatly decorated and labelled stalls

Being able to tailor these options to your needs adds the personal touches necessary to make sure your guests feel comfortable and well looked after, whilst encouraging them to network and socialise.

Similarly, social events such as award ceremonies or balls can be significantly enhanced through the right atmosphere and entertainment:

  • A great DJ
  • Security personnel
  • Personalised food menus
  • Stylish and photo-worthy interior settings
  • Inner-city location

This will help create an enjoyable and memorable night for all and will certainly leave the attendees feeling satisfied and impressed. A central location like Toorak also means you can party all night in the nearby CBD or one of Toorak’s nightlife hot-spots without any transport woes!

Event planning should be fun, so why not let the venue do the hard work for you? A multi-purpose setting is a great way to alleviate the stress of organising events, whilst allowing you to add the special touches that will make any occasion a successful one!
