Peter Ingels, General Manager at Beaumont Estate said: “The purpose of the Christmas Taster was to give event organisers a preview of the possibilities for Christmas parties at Beaumont Estate. The event was created to inspire and share the Christmas concepts achievable in our event spaces.”
60 guests attended the event with invitees including event organisers, corporate event professionals and local businesses. The event showcased the striking spaces available for Christmas party hire including the restored Chapel themed as a winter wonderland, the art deco features in the dining room complemented the Gatsby theming as the trend shows no signs of fading and the Remenham room was set for a grand festive affair.
Guests sipped on Champagne and feasted on a delicious assortment of festive inspired fare from canapés to bowl food and dessert stations created by the Head Chef Greg Starks and his team. Eats included blini with smoked salmon and sour crème topped with caviar, goat’s cheese and caramelised onion tartlet, traditional turkey with cranberry sauce and honey roasted Berkshire sausages with sage and onion mash. Tantalising treats on the dessert station included individual squares of Christmas cake, mince pies, shortbread and gingerbread men.
The Chapel’s original alcoves served as Santa’s private grotto. From here each guest received a goody bag with gifts including a Beaumont Estate embossed snowflake Christmas tree ornament, festive chocolates and reindeer rock sweets.
Corporate event specialists KDM provided all the theming in the styled event spaces and Guy Portlock from Magic Entertainment amused guests with magic tricks.
