Best Events of 2019…thus far!
With panoramic views of the Harbour, access to Sydney’s best seafood and a beautifully lavish space, a Watsons party is truly like no other.
We may only be in May, but we’ve already held some pretty spectacular events and we’re in the mood to reminisce. Let the party envy begin!
1. Laura & Matty J’s Baby Shower
Everyone’s favourite Bachie couple gathered their nearest and dearest to hold their baby shower in the Semi Private and Juliette section of our Sunset Room. Guests walked in to a room filled with beautiful pastel colour balloon arches and greeted with fresh coconuts and cocktails.
Food and drink was carefully curated to include all of the the couple’s favourite things, featuring an interactive rose sangria pop-up bar where guests could carefully customise exactly what fruit went in to their sangria as well as seafood and antipasto stations.
The fresh prawns, crab and oysters not only tasted, but also looked unbelievably decadent with the Hamptons beachside styling by the Make Haus, which brought that pop of colour with fresh fruit and green blooms, while still feeling effortless against the white wooden tables.
The real wow-factor came from the customised dessert station of dainty handmade desserts, which also featured an elegant floral cake which read ‘Baby Johnson’ and stunning floral arrangements, all in the soft pastel colour theme.
To celebrate free shipping and returns to Australia, US retailer Revolve held a week-long bunch of events around Sydney, with a fab day party in our gorgeous aqua Top Deck. With Shanina Shaik, Tash Oakley, Gabby Epstein, Devin Brugman and more all joining us, and the DJ getting everybody in the mood, the room was transformed into a influencer haven.
A swing was built, which was beautifully styled by the Make Haus, with hot pink balloons and florals, quickly turning in to the ultimate Instagram spot, with our beautiful harbour views in the background.
In true form, the fresh coconuts styled with mini flower bouquets and the Aperol Spritz Cocktail Cart got everyone snapping away. Delicious antipasto platters and roaming canapes also proved to be all the talk, as the perfect feed for a light graze.
3. Tarte Cosmetics
We had the pleasure of helping Tarte Cosmetics celebrate the launch of their brand new Shape Tape Concealer in our Top Deck and Mid Deck spaces. The summer vibes were truly encapsulated with beachy smoothies on arrival, the DJ spinning summer anthems, surfboards decorating the space and inflatable pools filled with beauty blenders on the deck.
The day was all about the product, with a wall of shape tapes displaying all the colours in the range, giant shape tapes roaming around and make-up artists colour matching and applying the product so guests could take home a few tips and tricks.
A wide array of featured activations wowed guests, particularly the engraving station where makeup products could be engraved as well as the hair salon station.
In classic Tarte style, the décor was very girly and fun, with purple love hearts draping from the ceiling and a whimsical bench brought in for those much-anticipated photo opportunities.
It was all topped off with a custom and styled cheese and antipasto station along the bar, which kept guests coming back for more.
