Hedsor is the ultimate blank canvas, and this was definitely true when a client turned “Head-Saw House” in a haunted country retreat for a Hallowe’en party with a difference!
The house, usually a vision of period features and English heritage, was transformed into a mysteriousand shadowy lair. From mojitos with ghostly dry ice to a centrepiece bar surrounded by a spider’s web, our client with Bespoke Events London showed that the sky is the limit for creativity at Hedsor!
We spoke to Creative Director Daniel at Bespoke Events London about the party and their incredible theming.
Daniel: “The party welcomed 300 Hallowe’en partygoers to a lavish and total transformation of Hedsor House, which had miraculously become a spooky mansion with a different haunted theme in each room! We even created a graveyard in the gardens complete with full-sized headstones and the sound of cackling crows.
Why Hedsor House?
Hedsor provided the opportunity to create a real haunted mansion party! It had multiple rooms we could transform, and we were bowled over by its secluded location and long winding driveway. A really great place to host a party.
The venue: We used the various rooms and spaces of Hedsor House to create themed areas; these included a huge centrepiece bar encapsulated in a giant spider’s web, a haunted circus dance area, a full graveyard (!), an abandoned dining room, and an experimental lounge complete with potions and preserved body parts. There’s no denying we went ‘all out’!
The entertainment: It was really important that, above and beyond great decoration and theming, guests had a great night!So we combined a range of entertainment to suit all tastes. This included tarot card readers, fortune tellers, haunted circus acts and to top it all off, DJ sets from top London clubs.
The food and drink: We really went for it with the theming, and chose a selection of Hallowe’en inspired canapés including blood-spattered salmon (beetroot gravadlax) and spicy mini devil burgers. For drinks we went for eerie Midori green cocktails squirted from syringes and plenty of Mojitos with ghostly dry ice!
The reaction: One guest commented as the party came to a close, “Just amazing, the BEST party I have EVER been to! – I think that says it all!
