An Out Of This World Birthday

Seventy guests toasted the 70th birthday of a worldly South African gentleman. To pay tribute to his globetrotting adventures, Ridgewells Catering crafted a travel-themed celebration with international flair. The Mediterranean cocktail reception—complete with Greek statues—featured Chicken Souvlaki Grinders and an assortment of mezze tapas. A South African safari theme—featuring animal prints, lanterns and lush plants—was the perfect complement to the main course dinner. The entertainment? Performers included Greek guards and an English Beefeater in costumes; a belly dancer; a country/rock band and South African dancers. The dessert bar offered a milkshake station and lots of chocolate goodies, to please the guest of honor, a confirmed chocoholic.
