MERRY CHRISTMAS FROM CARDAMOM EVENTS IBIZA

MERRY CHRISTMAS FROM CARDAMOM EVENTS IBIZA

 

Here at Cardamom Events Ibiza, We would like to wish all our clients and partners, past and present, a very Merry Christmas and a wonderful new year!

Besides the successful weddings and private events during the season and the soft opening of our new Decor & Equipment rental business (Cardamom Event Hire Ibiza), 2017 was topped off with the proverbial cherry with the Lastminute.com corporate group’s annual event, with over 200 international guests over 2 days for sporting events and their grand finale party which was quoted as the “best event they had ever had” – a proud and satisfying way to finish 2017!

With regards to our wedding events for 2018, the clients are from such varied countries and cultures, and their visions and decor tastes equally varied, that we believe the 2018 wedding ‘looks’ will be exciting and fresh. We also look forward to strengthening our position in the private and corporate events in Ibiza and can’t wait to hear the fabulous ideas the clients will ask for this coming year.

Finally, after 9 months of work with InMedia Design, we are proud to properly launch the latest website of our new offering for 2018. Namely, Cardamom Event Hire Ibiza which we will constantly be building upon to offer more for Ibiza’s events clients in the future…

Make your own version of our famous Cardamom Cava Sangria

Make your own version of our famous Cardamom Cava Sangria

So it’s a UK bank holiday today, and that means one thing – Family & friends having BBQ’s (no matter the weather)! In honour of it being the peak of summer – we thought we’d share a special secret with you today!

Cardamom have created a few food and drink items over the years which guests always ask us how to make at home. One of these is the enjoyment of our Cardamom Cava Sangria recipe. Ideal for a hot afternoon – refreshing, fruity, ice cold and with the perfect amount of alcohol to relax you into any event, this drink choice is very popular in Ibiza, especially as an event welcome drink. To try our recipe at home, simply follow the following steps:

Prep time: Part day before (15 mins max), 30 mins on the day

Equipment:
Glass jug x2 (or x1 item similar to hold fruit in fridge overnight)
Knife
Chopping board
Fridge space
Stirrer
Wine glasses for serving

Ingredients:
1 apple
1 pear
1 peach
A handful of strawberries
Sugar syrup
Ice (lots!)
30cl Vodka
20cl Dark Rum
25cl Cointreau
Cold fresh orange juice (no bits!)
A cold bottle of Cava (or two!)

How to:

1. Cut up the apple, pear, peach, strawberries, place into jug (or similar) & cover in sugar syrup. Leave overnight to soak in the fridge.

2. Use fresh jug and fill ½ way with ice.

3. Add vodka, rum, cointreau, fruit.

4. Add orange juice until jug ½ full.

5. Add cold cava until full & stir.

6. Refrigerate for 15 minutes before serving. Enjoy!

Now – we tend to make our cava in mass production, meaning the recipe quantities are just a guide. If you feel you want more alcohol, more fruit or to add your own twist – play around with it until it is your very own recipe! Plus one extra top tip for even more enjoyment; put your glasses in the freezer 1 hour before serving, then remove and pour into chilled, frosted glasses!

Contact us today to order our very own cava sangria at your Ibiza event info@cardamomevents.com. Special thanks to Fernando our Matre Di, for sharing this top secret recipe! 😉

Full swing in events season

 

 

Full swing in events season

We’ve just had a pretty busy few days! Congratulations to Elizabeth & Ben plus 90 guests, who we created a three day wedding for. Here’s what we delivered…

Staring with a rehearsal dinner at La Paloma on Thursday night, we took over the venue for a romantic rehearsal dinner. Guests arrives to a decorated venue to enjoy cava fruit cocktails and canapes, welcome speeches & then a three course dinner with optional seabass, filet steak or Aubergine for mains. This really was the perfect way for the guests to meet each other and start the celebrations.

The next morning began with a private yoga session for the bridal party and beach session for the groomsmen. A fresh and healthy lunch followed while everyone got ready and the photographer began to take photos. Guests started to arrive via VIP transport from 17:00hrs to a mythical forest space. Flip flops and sun parasols were given to guests to keep cool before the bride entered in a stunning Jenny Packham dress and the service was conducted by a family friend. Afterwards, the flower girls led the guests through the forest with tambourines and shakers to a private villa where a modern string quartet played and guests enjoyed cava before speeches at sunset. Next up was dining in a romantic pomegranate courtyard where a menu of beetroot carpaccio, slow roasted lamb and espresso martinis were served. The party then followed in a moroccan garden including a DJ, saxophonist, panoramic projections across the surrounding landscape and dancing under the stars. Nannies took care of the children while the adults relaxed and enjoyed themselves.

The final day of events then came, in the form of a mini festival! This started with bloody mary’s to cure the previous days drinking, alongside a luxury hog roast, crepe and ice cream stations and some relaxing head and shoulder massages. Next came face embellishment, high end dress up items, a gine station, DJ, percussionist and dancing. Marshmellows by the fire pit then arrived alongside a snack of mini mac & cheese pots (a favourite of the groom!) and finally a surprise fire show. Photos to follow.

Everything events – bespoke!

When a client doesn’t book you, but gives you wonderful feedback…

 

 

 

When a client doesn’t book you, but gives you wonderful feedback…

For clients wanting to get married in Ibiza, we know it’s important to feel confident in a wedding planner’s ability to create exactly what you dream of (especially as most of our client relationships are from different locations across the globe). As such, we want to share some feedback from some clients who did not actually book their wedding with us (due to family circumstances they booked a different geographical location – you win some, you lose some!), but gave some great feedback on the enquiry process and their impression of us – which is an area we take great pride in.

You (Cardamom) put on some of the most unique and thoughtful events with the utmost consideration for your needs.  You have been understanding about our changing needs throughout and are always so timely with your responses.  If I was to describe Cardamom to a friend, I would tell them to use your company. You can put together any event and pull together all the strings that you never thought would be hanging, all in a one-stop-shop.

I really wish we could have worked with you guys, if only we had decided to hold our wedding on Ibiza.  I was looking back at your facebook posts and getting so sad that we couldn’t do a projection project for our wedding by that poolside.  You guys have the most unique and creative ideas about how to put together an out-of-the-box event that people will remember.

Let us create something special in Ibiza for you info@cardamomevents.com
