We were absolutely thrilled to host a corporate event for Hogan Lovells. They booked in with Glam Hatters for a stylish pre-Ascot fascinator making corporate event.
We arrived at their offices at 5pm to set up the room. It already looked gorgeous with stunning views of the London sky line and a baby grand piano.
We dressed the tables with millinery tools, fascinators, mirrors and scissors and then on a separate table we laid the table with pink candy stripe table-cloths, set out hat boxes full of veiling, tulle, sinamay strips and millinery materials along with beading and buttons in a huge range of colours.
We were set up and ready to go by 5.30pm – the clients were due at 6pm! This gave us a bit of time to check out the view.
Guests were served champagne and canapes on arrival and had time to catch up with clients and colleagues whilst the Glam Hatter Girls mingled through the crowd chatting fascinators and races!
Once the ladies took their seats Laura gave a lovely intro about The Glam Hatters and Glam Hatter Girls Janie, Astri, Lily, Rachel and Shabnam all felt about 10 feet tall by the end of it!
It was a super-fun event from the start with lots of chatting, laughing and bonding over colour choices and style decisions.
Lily demonstrated rose making whilst Janie demonstrated sculptural trimmings.
Rachel threaded quite a lot of needles, Astri (our ninja sewer) helped out with bird-cage veils and Shabnam (our super-strong Swedish sewer/photographer) sewed, took pictures and generally ran around being amazingly helpful.
The ladies, sewed, designed, created, drank bubbles, nibbled on macaroons and came up with some fabulous fascinators.
It was the perfect activity for an all female corporate party, but anyone reading this who is planning a corporate event which is mainly female but has a couple of males check out my previous blog. We can incorporate trilby decorating for the guys and they can be as super stylish or as absolutely flamboyant as the guys want!
The guys at Hogan Lovells and their clients made us feel so welcome, they were kind, fun, clever and a really good laugh. We ended the event at 8.30pm with a line up picture of all the ladies in their creations, as you can see they looked stunning.
When myself and The Glam Hatter Girls left at 9pm we were all on a high, chatting at sixteen to the dozen about the party and all the things the clients had produced and saying how lovely they had all been.
We had already met Laura (the corporate event organiser) the previous Summer when The Glam Hatter Girls hosted a fascinator making hen party for her very lovely group friends who were all lawyers. Laura was the hen party organiser at that time and her brief was to “find a stylish hen party activity…”
Laura chose the Luxury Fascinator Package for the hen party and was so impressed that 6 months later she booked in another hen party and went for the Gatsby Fascinator Package…and then 2 weeks after that hen party she contacted me to book Glam Hatters for a “stylish pre-Ascot fascinator making” corporate event for her law firm Hogan Lovells.
Hire the Glam Hatter Girls for your event and you may have trouble getting us to leave – we became pretty attached to these guys and we’ll do the same at your corporate event! For more details on corporate packages (catered or un-catered, in-house or at our Exmouth Market venue) please contact Janie with all your requirements.
