The Westin’s golden age glitz and glamour ahead of The Melbourne Cup!
How do you welcome the race that stops the nation? When The Westin Melbourne wanted to put on a show-stopping champagne breakfast prior to The Melbourne Cup, LENZO channelled the glitz and glamour of a golden bygone era to create a captivating Cup Day do!
Roll out the red carpet (or in this case, glamorous gold!) for the following premier … The Westin’s Old Hollywood themed Melbourne Cup breakfast!
Framed movie star photos and screen siren quotes were the perfect memorabilia to welcome the likes of the original ‘Bachelor’ Tim Robards, Masterchef’s Diana Chan and Khanh Hong, designers Jason Grech and Viktoria Novsk, actress Sharon Johal and beauties Gemma Watts and Carly Lennon.
Taking the hotel’s event to new heights, a Moët & Chandon champagne tower brought a touch of tinsel town to the soiree while A Peachy Affair worked with fabulously feminine roses and painted palm fans to create on-trend floral displays fit for a darling or Hollywood diva.
Vintage entertainment came in the form of Brooks and Baker, dancing up a Fred Astaire storm that echoed the black and white showreel footage on the CEPL Video Wall. VIP Photo Booth, who transformed our recent hens day editorial into a fun festivity fit for a future wifey, brought gallons of glamour to the breakfast with a bespoke photo booth and sequinned backdrop encouraging everyone to strike a pose.
A magnificent macaron tower stuffed with scented roses featured a myriad of mouth-watering flavours including poached pear in Pinot Noir, while the addition of confit cherry and martini jelly to cheesecakes and chocolate mousse made the household favourites red carpet ready. Not to be outdone, edible handbags featuring quilted fondant and pretty sugar pearls had fashionistas eyes on stalks!
Until next event,
GET YOUR GOLDEN GLAMOUR ON WITH LENZO!
