A birthday at Belvedere, Holland Park, London

A dinner party is the perfect way to celebrate with an intimate group of friends. As adults, a champagne over dinner, catching up with old friends seems like the perfect way to start an evening of celebrations. Of course, that has to be followed by birthday cake, dancing, cocktails and…tarot card reading of course!

Emanuela, an international event planner, celebrated an evening with her closest friends and family at Belvedere in Holland Park. Guests were welcomed to champagne on arrival with the opportunity to have their cards read. A private terrace allowed guests to meander in the London air and take in the beauty of the park.

Dinner was served with a vegan menu of sharing platters, the perfect way to get guests talking. It creates such a relaxed atmosphere. Cocktails were served and Emanuela’s closest friend all wished her Happy birthday with speeches.

Dinner was followed by dancing and a surprise birthday cake. The night was just getting started…then it was time for more dancing…and polaroids.


The napkins were designed by her team at Event Republic Studio, stationary by Romeo and Jules Studio and florals by Emanuela’s good friend Hayden Blest.

Emanuela wore Halfpenny London.
