One thing I always enjoy is a challenge and this certainly was when I received a last minute phone call from one of Elite Clients. “A Luxury Yacht Party?!” “In three days?!” Challenge accepted!
Immediately, I got on the phone, reached out to my contacts in the UAE and started planning.
We used the Finest Florist who is actually the supplier for Royal Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum to create a beautiful Fushia Floral Installation around the base of the three tier Bespoke Cake that I worked on designing with the Head Chef of Jumeriah Resort.
This incredible Cake comprised of 3 layers, a Chocolate Base and Red Velvet Sponge centre. It weighed 13kg and stood 60cm’s tall. Hand Decorated over 3 hours with Lace and Edible Gold.
My clients were escorted from the Jumeirah Beach Resort to it’s private Marina, where there was a 50ft Yacht awaiting their arrival with a Full Crew; head chef, sous chef, patisserie chef, baby-sitter, butler, waiters & a security team that escorted the family to and from every location.
Welcomed on board with a Champagne Beach View Breakfast, the Fabulous Crew privately sailed my client and his family from the Jumeriah Resort, around the iconic ‘World Island’ across to The Palm Island where they dined in the stunning One & Only Mirage.
Following his Private Dining, I had the One & Only Arabian Shisha Lounged opened up exclusively for my client and his family. Whilst the family enjoyed a relaxing afternoon, the Fabulous Crew sailed back to base where the cake was collected and the team of Floral Designers got to work.
All topped off with a surprise Champagne & Caviar 5* 3 Three Course Dinner on board the Yacht. The candles were lit on the cake and the crew sang ‘Happy Birthday’ in the Family’s native language (because the little touches are what make those magical moments!)
I received a very happy voice note from my client along with these lovely images.
I cannot thank the crew at First Yacht Dubai and Jumeriah enough. They were an absolute dream to work with. Despite all my last minute requests and communicating from two sides of the world they pulled out all the stops to ensure an impeccable service from start to finish!
