Over Chinese New Year, we had the pleasure of working with a talented team to launch a scintillating new dining experience in Surfers Paradise – Chop Chop.
Chop Chop is an Asian street food precinct, is just one block from the beach and famous Cavill Avenue. The laneway links Surfers Paradise Boulevarde to Orchid avenue, and nestled right next to the Hilton Hotel.
Across Chinese New Year weekend, both VIP guests and families enjoyed delightful food, beverages and entertainment within this unique space.
The Surfers Boulevarde entrance was framed by huge Chinese Dog statues and uplit in dramatic red lighting to create aesthetic impact as soon as guests arrive. Statement floral arrangements featuring tall bamboo and Oriental parasols were placed throughout the area. A dynamic roving fire performer engaged senses as guests walked the red carpet.
Illuminated bars featuring bespoke, branded graphics were embellished with fresh floral arrangements, vintage Asian birdcages and candles.
Subtle fringed curtains were stylish backdrops for eye-catching roving performers, including fire and acrobats. The highlight of the night was a traditional Chinese Lion dance performance accompanied by percussionists.
An interactive photo station was so much fun to create, with a black wire pergola festooned with Oriental lanterns in various sizes and shapes. Guests couldn’t stop snapping insta-worthy photos in this divine space, while perched on our vintage black chaise lounge.
There were so many spaces for us to fill with elegant activations, and the Hongbao Garden was one of our faves. A walk-through garden experience featured 4m tall cherry blossom trees with red envelopes (hongbao) tied to the branches. The sounds of a Japanese water garden played in the background and enticing scents of ginger, cinnamon and ylang ylang were diffused to heighten the sensory experience.
It was a joy to elevate moments, create beauty, facilitate connection and provide a life-enriching event experience for all who attended.
Event Society is a place where imagination is made tangible, and we loved working on this event from conceptual stages and adding our unique creative flair.
Just when you started to think that all corporate events are the same – we break the script.
This event was a series of exquisite, elevated moments that created memories and encouraged connection to the Chop Chop experience.
