Hotelnacht Alice in Wonderland dinner

We just love these kinds of projects. Luckily, being a florist in not always about  beautiful bouquets and vase arrangements (as much as we love them). The annual event of Hotelnacht provides an opportunity for locals to experience hotels in their own city. This could mean attending a party, a special dinner or staying the night for a reduced rate.

Let's set the scene: for those of you who have watched the movies you will remember the flamingos, rabbits, flowers, fantasy, magic and colour.

Ivy twirled around the room garnishing the two 12 metre long tables and surrounds. Fresh roses, mimosa, tulips, orchids, anemone's and scattered rose petals played centre stage in front of the diners inviting them to smell and touch, before they could even see.

After being given a potion to sip titled 'drink me' guests were led through the 'Alice Garden', given another treat reading 'eat me' then were blindfolded and walked into the secret dining room.

We used red and white ‘painted’ roses to emulate the scene where they painted the white roses red in the movie.

Several courses were served and diners were audibly walked through what to expect, where to find their glassware (and not to mistake the water from the wine glass!). Later, they had to guess the ingredients. The guest with the closest guess to the recipe won prizes like massages and dinners at the Andaz. They may have even learnt a few new magic tricks from the in house magician!
