Twilight Table

We believe that we throw a helluva party, and Twilight Table was one where the stars aligned (ha…good pun) and everything was perfect.

In planning for months, we crafted every single detail to ensure guests had a phenomenal dining experience.

The event was created to showcase the amazing chefs of Oracle Boulevarde from Mecca Bah, Mamasan, Bavarian, The Cuban and Social Eating House. Each restaurant created a dish for a five-course degustation menu, with hand-picked wines to perfectly match each course. Even the crockery was chosen to suit the theme of the night and the food that was to be presented on top.

The styling had to represent not only the starry night sky theme, but be aesthetically impacting, modern and edgy. Inspired by the name Twilight Table, we devised a celestial theme utilising a luxurious and on trend colour scheme and inspiration. Pantone’s colour of 2018 is Ultra Violet which is mirrored by the vast and limitless night sky. We started with a curved table that snaked down the street in an organic curve that was immediately visually striking. We clothed the curves in flowing navy satin and dressed them with cosmic glowing orb centrepieces to illuminate the space. Blue glassware was matched with silver place settings that featured violet hued knotted napkins.

As over a hundred excited guests arrived, they enjoyed champagne along with delicious and bountiful Mecca Bah canapes. Cocktail tables were covered in bespoke galaxy print and the band played chilled out tunes as the sun set over the boulevard.

When it was time to be seated, guests took their places at numbered chairs and were served with an exquisite seafood dish from Mamasan of Hokkaido Scallops and scorched squid. The second course from Bavarian Bier Café was Crispy pork belly and orange and quince glaze, closely followed by slow cooked lamb shoulder from The Cuban. To finish, guests enjoyed a famous dessert from Social Eating House of Tonka Bean Panna Cotta with warm Rhubarb Crumble.

Heaters blazed as the night became cooler, and guests filled themselves on fine wine and delectable food from some of the Gold Coast’s best restaurants.

The inaugural Twilight Table event was a huge success, and we were thrilled to manage and style the event. Or professional team of event planners ensured that every detail was covered so that the night ran flawlessly.
