When we realised that in lieu of gifts, Quraish requested donations be made to one of the numerous charities he supports, we knew we were planning a very special celebration indeed. And witnessing the love and respect his coworkers, friends and family radiated towards Q, spoke volumes of this one-in-a-million man. And so the Posh crew set to work preparing the perfect dinner surprise celebation.
When a posh plan comes together…
Helen, Q’s better half, entrusted the task of putting together a low-key relaxed, yet Posh evening for Q.
La Casa Nostra, a quaint Italian restaurant on the Dolphin coast, served as the perfect venue; an intimate setting, with beautifully prepared, delicious Italian cuisine, top staff and warm hospitality.
We set about transforming the space from traditional Italian, to a glitzy,posh space with a masculine feel. Black sequins sparkled on the tables underneath candlelight. Orchid centrepieces provided a soft botanic touch, while mini marquee “Q’s” added a touch of fun alongside the mirror ball.
Guests were welcomed with not one, but TWO gin stations – on the one side a fun cart with 2 lovely ladies serving Hendricks gin and on the opposite side a glorious variety of Musgrave gin cocktails.
“A party without cake is just a meeting…” Julia Child, and party without tequila is just a dinner…
Raul and the La Casa Nostra team looked after guests with an indulgent array of Italian eats and treats. And after formalities, a cake specially designed in honour of Quraish, lovingly nicknamed “Q”, provided a delicious curiosity for guests to admire and enjoy.
Happy 40th Birthday, Quraish!
Special thanks to a few suppliers that added a Posh touch to the evening:
