As lockdown measures continue to ease but social distancing rules remain in place, at this point in the year many of us are craving some much-needed time with family and friends. And, given the fact that we’re mid-way through the summer, what better way to do that than hold a garden party at your home?
Nope, we’re not suggesting you flout or flagrantly disregard government-imposed measures to stay two metres apart – in fact, quite the opposite. Your garden is the perfect place to host a few carefully chosen guests safely, without putting yourselves, or anyone else, at risk.
If you’re privileged to enjoy some sprawling outdoor space, then it doesn’t take much to pull together a quintessentially English soiree that would make Merry Berry proud. But if you want to go all out on the occasion and throw an extravagant ‘do’ to celebrate all those occasions you’ve missed out on of late, then why not get the professionals in instead?
Social and Safe is a bespoke, socially-distanced home entertaining concept that is taking outdoor summer socialising to a whole new level. The brainchild of three of the UK’s leading luxury event suppliers, Snapdragon, Wildabout and By Word of Mouth, it offers one-of-a-kind events that guarantee an occasion to remember – whilst continuing to allow safe distancing to be maintained.
Bringing together their knowledge and experience of the high-end events world to create lavish gatherings with entertainment on a bubble-sized scale, options include everything from children’s birthday parties and afternoon teas to lavish lunches on the lawn. And, with mouth-watering food and drink, beautiful flowers and styling plus a five-star experience all taken care of, it’s guaranteed to transform your garden into a safe and perfectly styled sanctuary that promises a good time for all.
Whatever the theme or occasion, Social and Safe can cater for it – so if you missed a beloved relative’s big birthday, had to cancel a friend’s baby shower or put a wedding day on hold, then a tailored experience will be carefully curated for you to perfectly meet both your and your guests’ needs.
Renowned as one of the finest luxury wedding and event planners London has to offer, operating Snapdragon has long been delivering unique and magical experiences to private clients and luxury brands across Europe. Think outstanding design, unrivalled attention to detail and flawless execution and you’d be on the right track, guaranteeing you a perfectly and tastefully decorated garden area that is certain to inject that wow factor into the day.
Complemented perfectly by Wildabout’s stunning floral installations, which provide a show-stopping centrepiece for any socially distanced event, and perfectly polished with beautiful table dressings that are tailored to suit each client’s needs, it’s easy to see why this creative pair of companies works so well together.
And, add By Word of Mouth’s decadent dishes expertly designed specifically for each occasion – plus its carefully chosen selection of fine wines, champagnes and cocktails – into the mix, and you’ll have a Safe and Social gathering dreams are made of.
In the past few months, the company has prepared over 76,500 meals for NHS staff at three of London’s hospitals as part of the Mealforce initiative. Its support of the NHS doesn’t end there, either, and Social and Safe will also donate to NHS Charities Together continuing to help the important work still going on to fight Covid-19- which means that your outdoor get together comes with the added bonus of supporting a good cause, too. And what better reason to celebrate than that?
Snapdragon, Wildabout and By Word of Mouth are all Covid-19 compliant, so you’ll feel comfortable celebrating and hosting your event with the knowledge that they are operating safely and with discretion, prioritising health and safety at all times. So, no need to spend your special day worrying about germs and bacteria getting in the way of the fun – crack open that bottle of bubbly, and get ready to make up for lost time.
