McDonalds France Celebrate 40 Years!


Cardamom Events Ibiza were delighted to be brought on-board, quite literally, to assist the brilliant Havas Events France on the 40 year celebrations of Mcdonalds France.

As island experts when it comes to corporate events, we knew we were confident that they would be over-the-moon with our inputs!

The fiesta begun at the world-famous Destino, the luxury hotel which is part of the iconic Ibiza Pacha Group. We were drafted in to design and create the floral arrangements for which we used one of our favourite suppliers El Ramo De Flores Ibiza.

Dinner and entertainment poolside under the Ibiza skies continued well into the night.

The next day, the party moved onto a grand cruise liner. Our florists had to fly to Mallorca to source the flowers, then travel with the ship to Ibiza and set up in the way!

All in all, we think the McDonalds team had the time of their lives!

Cardamom Events Entertainment Feature: Urban Soul Orchestra (UK)

Here at Cardamom Events Ibiza, we are big fans of the Urban Soul Orchestra (USO) – a contemporary and versatile string ensemble with a unique twist, incorporating percussion, bass, DJ & vocals. By enriching a classic string set-up with soulful arrangements and funky rhythms, they create a fresh modern sound. USO’s elegant musicians are comprised of celebrated professional musicians, vocalists and DJs of international acclaim.

USO provide various styles of entertainment offering the complete soundtrack to any corporate or private event, from chilled background music during drinks or dinner, to a roof-raising full band to stir up the dance floor. The band can be adapted for all parts of the show in just one booking.

USO has worked for 25 years at the top of the UK music industry, collaborating with an impressive range of artists including Groove Armada, Mick Jagger, Annie Lennox, Take That, Keane, The Script, Grace Jones, Octave One, Ella Erye, and Jess Glynn. Working at this level, USO brings an added height of professionalism, musicianship and style. We recommend USO if you have a desire for something truly unique.

Every summer USO perform a series of Classic Ibiza concerts across the UK in association with Ministry Of Sound. The orchestra plays a collection of classic Ibiza anthems arranged for a 32 piece Orchestra with live DJ and internationally renowned vocalists at some of the most beautiful stately homes in the UK. Last year USO released their debut Classic Ibiza album. To stream or download the Album click here.

 

USO’s ensembles include the Chill Out Set, DJ Live, DJ Sets, Electric String Quartet, Acoustic Ensemble, Jazz Band, String Quartet, Little Big Band, Little Swing Band, Show Band, Swing Band, Twin Violins.

Cardamom recommends…

Cardamom recommends…

It’s September. For many people in Ibiza that means time to finally start to ease off the throttle of summer madness – plus the vacation crowd attracted to September often seek a slightly more luxurious and relaxing trip to the island. Why? Well, the weather gets slightly less scorching yet the days are still long and warm, the sea is now at perfect dipping temperature, and with slightly fewer tourists, the overall island energy (and traffic!) is much more pleasurable.

Our September recommendation therefore comes in the form of the 5 star Aguas de Ibiza Revival Spa. At 40€ to access for non hotel guests (which includes use of the pools and steam rooms), and with bolt on Clarins treatments and restaurant options such as a set three course lunch, there is arguably no better way to unwind in Ibiza. The Santa Eulalia spa was renovated last winter and now hosts some beautiful spaces to unwind and you leave feeling like you’ve received a true 5 star experience.

We visited the spa a couple of weeks ago and the experience was simply magical. Opting for the three course lunch which included a salad starter, chicken main and fruity desert we then entered the spa and did the rounds of the steam rooms and jet pool – to ease up our knotty shoulders until we received Clarins hot stone massages – which were incredible. The staff were polite, professional and calming – as was the entire experience (which came in at around 200€). Just what we needed!

Aguas is also a fantastic venue to host your Cardamom event (think rooftop birthday drinks with marina views, a wedding in a luxurious courtyard or hosting a dinner in one of the many fine dining restaurants at Aguas), plus the bedrooms and suites are divine (group bookings made through Cardamom receive a 10% discount). Go on, treat yourself! For more information, contact info@cardamomevents.com today.

Something sweet

Something sweet

One of our gorgeous couples wanted something special and sweet this year. We did a vanilla bean lactose free cake topper covered in marshmallows and dripping chocolate (to cut), with a macaroon tower alongside it (raspberry, vanilla and almond flavours), which added some colour and fun to this beautiful wedding.

The beauty of canapes

The beauty of canapes

Canapés. Usually used as part of an event opening, good canapés play a large factor in an event kicking off well. From supporting the events theme or concept, to being an aspect of focus for guests who need a conversation starter, to keeping hungry stomachs at bay ahead of the main food service, canapés really are an important factor to consider. In Ibiza, many opt for Spanish themed canapés, which really set the scene for an event. Here is our perfect recommendation of event canapés for this summer, from our event menu:

CARDAMOM RECOMMENDED CANAPES SUMMER 2016
Traditional andalusian gazpacho
Grilled mediterranean chicken brochettes, marinated in paprika & garlic

Grilled king prawns with lemon & chilli (below image)
Spanish tortilla & piquillo pepper brochette

Brochette of sun dried tomato, baby mozzarella, basil & olives
