LENZO styles a picnic-inspired evening dinner for Yellowglen’s new spritz
Summer’s calling – and we know what we’ll be enjoying beachside as the weather gets warmer!
When Yellowglen asked us to style their latest range of spritzes to join their impressive portfolio, we jumped at the chance to party with Australia’s most popular sparkling.
Captured by the ever-impressive Beck Rocchi at the West Beach Bathers Pavilion, this beachside location was the perfect place in which to launch Yellowglen’s deliciously light and bubbly Sunset Spritz collection.
Available in two delicious flavour to satisfy any palate – Yellowglen Sunset Spritz Spritzed Rosé infused with wild berries, and Yellowglen Sunset Spritz Chardonnay Pinot Noir and Prosecco infused with elderflower and lime – we know what drink we’ll be responsibly sipping on this summer!
Hosted by Yellowglen lifestyle director Emma Hawkins, an intimate yet relaxed picnic-inspired dinner was provided for 35 lucky guests. Knowing this sunset soiree had to be next-level, we enlisted the help of some of our fave Melbourne suppliers to create a luxe, beachy vibe.
Frosted blush pink and gold accents were the colour palette of choice, and was introduced in everything from the florals to the furniture, props, signage, and menus.
For those extra LENZO touches, we asked #ACRYLIQUEEN Sketch & Etch to provide us with these amazing acrylic menus, place cards, and welcome sign, which tied it all together!
Guests sat down on a plush lounge setting and enjoyed delicious catering by West Beach Bathers Pavilion. The gorgeous pink plates were supplied by none other than Laa Laa Event Hire.
It was an incredible effort by Place Settings who topped it all off with their divine furniture and décor – such as the table, bar, and gold punch bowls. We are loving the acrylic bar lettering by our friends over at Entourage Events, which added an extra zing to the bar. Check out the gold palm tree by Entourage Events, too - how luxe!
Yellowglen is best enjoyed with friends, so we provided the opportunity for guests to mingle and drink the most heavenly fruit-infused spritzes while relaxing on a phenom lounge setting by Dann Event Hire, who also supplied the rug and coffee table. Could summer sunset picnics be the #NEXTBIGTHING?
Of course, Flowers by Brett Matthew John went above and beyond (again!) with their stunningly fresh florals that sat on and around the bar, as the table centrepieces, and suspended on custom-made archways by Shape Steel. We just love the gold foil sprayed over the flowers – what a refreshing look!
And we can’t look past the lush potted greenery from Green Event, which definitely gave us major summer vibes around the venue!
And, as the sun dipped below the horizon, guests were kept snug and warm with Toasty Heater Hire in the lounge section. Among those who attended the exciting launch were media influencers and models, such as Rozalia Russian, Charlotte Ennels, Brooke Meredith, and Leah Johnsen, who posed and pouted in front of the stunning media wall, which was also supplied by Sketch & Etch.
You heard it here first: The Sunset Spritz collection will be your go-to drink this summer!
