Corporate Events: Fabulous Feasts aboard the Silver Sturgeon

October 10, 2011



To launch Silverfleet's new 'Relaxed Luxe' styling from Fiona Leahy Creative Event Design Agency and their new partnership with Jamie Oliver's Fabulous Feasts, we were invited aboard the magnificent Silver Sturgeon for an evening of 'Champagne and Fabulous British Feasting' to promote the use of the boat for Corporate Events.

Ladies, please get out of the way, Ben Lloyd Evans is trying to take a picture of his reflection in your booth.

We weren't there just for the food though, we'd brought along glamorous DJ duo Black and Lilac who provided an evening of slick, sophisticated background music as guests took in the sights from the deck of the boat. The sultry pair were kind enough to pose for a few photos on the (boat) deck before hitting the (For DJ-ing) Decks downstairs. Their striking looks and eye-catching sense of style really added to the refined, contemporary atmosphere on the Silver Sturgeon. Performing a mix of ambient chill-out tunes, recognisable hits and obscure cult favourites, the ladies delighted guests with an eclectic musical backdrop as they enjoyed the food and drink on offer.

If we keep working at events with Fabulous Feasts, this will soon turn into a food blog.

And the food really deserved special praise; taking cues from Jamie Oliver's new Book 'Jamie's Great Britain', the drinks, canapés and bowl food on the Silver Sturgeon was a showcase for Great British produce. In particular, one of the Bar Staff's concoctions by the name of 'Orchard Jamboree' was especially popular amongst the guests on an unseasonably warm late September evening.

And while guests waited for their painstakingly crafted cocktails, they could get a good look at the Silver Sturgeon's new herb wall behind the bar - which worked especially well with the focus on fresh ingredients from the Fabulous Feasts Catering Team. The wall even proved useful for the bar staff with sprigs of mint and rosemary featuring in the drinks on offer.  

I'm guessing the one on the left is 'Black' but it would help if the one on the right was wearing lilac.
