Kew Palace is set to undergo a ‘reawakening’ this year with a renewed focus on hosting intimate receptions and dinners. The showcase event was designed to allow guests to experience the royal palace and Royal Kitchens as an option for intimate events.

As part of the showcase event, guests enjoyed a drinks reception in the Royal Kitchen which was decorated with spring themed floral displays courtesy of Lavender Green Flowers. The florist also provided floral displays for the table in The Dining Room, as well as lanterns to mark the guest route and add to the ambience of the evening.

Ampersand Events was on hand with a selection of culinary delights for guests to enjoy. Canapés included curry macaroons, smoked salmon blinis with lemon crème fraiche, goats cheese brule and beetroot sponge with hazelnut.

Guests were then able to take part in a tour of the palace during which they could discover more about the history of the venue as well as seeing the event spaces on offer for corporate and private events.

HRP Event solutions provided all production on the night including uplighting, a PA system and a screen to premiere the new Kew Palace events trailer.
