I just got back from setting up a chocolate gold themed wedding…
The first thing that sprung to mind when we started planning (although some people do think they are dead naff I know ) was that there had to be some classic Ferraro Rocher towers, of course! And so it was my job to make 2 as table dressing for the chocolate banquet table.
I cannot believe how many boxes we got through (about 24 x 24 piece boxes in total for 2 60cm towers)
Note: you need more than you think, especially if you plan to top up as the guests eat.
This week saw a styling job at Olympia’s National Wedding fair.
I’ve never been to a wedding show before but have worked on quite a few weddings, so the experience was a bit of an insight into the business side of martrimony. I’m a little overwhelmed by how big this event is- especially when they were driving classic cars into the space – and sound checking what sounded suspiciously like a Game of Thrones soundtrack. However, I got to climb on a 4m high wedding cake so in that sense was in my element.
Channelling our best The Cure/ Placebo/ Republica playlist we regressed back to our childhoods for our nineties inspired theme bar: The Amy Grimehouse Team put on a trashtastic night where you could Hex your Ex and dance supercamp cabaret before taking your seats to watch a screening of “The Craft”. Needless to say cocktails were mandatory and served, we like to think, with plenty of grunge attitude and space raider crisps of course!

Next Saturday, Amy Grimehouse- East London’s favourite concept cinema sensation are screening “The Craft” at Sutton house – a Tudor Manor House in Hackney
We couldn’t help but get involved, so we are running a occult themed cocktail bar. Where we will be selling potions to punters.
I was going to send these tiny little biscuits out as invitations… However, I completely underestimated my propensity to eat as I bake- I don’t think the shortbread would have survived the post in one piece anyway.
This week I was working on Virgin Media’s one day Pop Up Diner in Soho…
It had a menu inspired by gory thriller series and films. So, as you can imagine a lot of fun with the guys from Pretty Green trying to figure out what weird references to the t.v. show there’d be on show. There was use of Radox salts to be the Blue Crystal Meth in Breaking Bad and a great picture of John Travolta on the toilet in the loo. However surely the best bit about it was getting to have the five dollar shake from Pulp Fiction – Dulce de Leche ice cream and peanut butter – mmm, with a side of Los Pollos Hermanos chicken wings.
Just uploaded the proper pictures to my website: http://ffionharman.co.uk/T-V-Diner
But here is the 5 dollar shake in all it’s glory…
