A Very Special 'Flower Design' Day at Twelve

Working in the catering industry allows one to share in the most special of days.  In this industry there are many special days and then there are some which are just outstanding.  On 2nd August Twelve Restaurant and Lounge Bar were honoured to host Jane Thompson's 50th Birthday Party.

This party was always going to be special as it was being organised by the best and most inspirational in the industry with Jane and Jason of Flower Design organising Jane's party.  
However it wasn't going to be just a birthday party!  There were just a few of us in the know!  The friends and family attending were blissfully unaware that Jane's birthday party,  was actually going to be a fabulous celebration as Jane and Jason renewed their wedding vows.



Jane and Jason's party was titled a 'celebration of friends, family, food and flowers'.  With 50 different types of flowers in the restaurant for Jane's 50th birthday. 
Flower design transformed Twelve into the most magical scene.  
The centre pieces for each table were striking.





The restaurant once fully dressed looked spectacular.  
Grass table cloths are the future.  Brides get booking the look is awesome!







 Jane's favourite food is chocolate.  BeChocolate made an enchanted chocolate garden scene which was enjoyed by all the guests after dinner

Ozay and David prepared arrival drinks for 'Mrs Jane' and her guests


Flowers featured everywhere including in the arrival drink
Botanical English Garden Gin & Tonic



As the guests began to arrive the Gospel choir Sing Out Music set the scene.  Jane was taken back of house to change into her vow renewal outfit





Jane in very high spirits looked fantastic as she made her way through the kitchen prior to the big surprise for all their guests.

As the day evolved there was wall to wall entertainment with Paul Guard and Gary Mills as guests partied late into the night.  
Evening refreshments, well of course there was a Hog Roasting under the windmill for later on!

There were many people involved in this special day from the wedding industry.  Lottie Designs  James Jebson Peter Jackson Creative Cover Hire hair by Duncan, Make up by Sonara Darren Robinson so many to mention, but all integral to this amazing day.

All of the team at Twelve Restaurant would like to thank Jane & Jason for choosing us to be part of their very special day.
