On the Thursday the 2nd of November, Star Light Events (stage 1 event management students) held the annual Patisserie High Tea on behalf of our clients, Susan Carey and Angela Tsimikitis. It was held in the Angliss Restaurant from 3 to 5pm. We were lucky enough to have all of our functions event management students to assist us on the day, which assisted the day to run smoothly.

The Patisserie High Tea is an annual event to showcase and display their work. All of the buffet items that were available were made by the students and teachers. There were over 25 different sweets from Toffee Apples to Banana and Caramel Eclairs.

The Theme of our Events was ‘It’s a little bit Fruity’ so we styled our event with lots of fresh fruit and greenery. The bright colours and strong aroma drew the guests into the room. Each table had a specific fruit allocated to it, as well as a range of different seasonal fruits at the bottom.

We started the Tea, with canapés and welcome drinks in the foyer, they then headed into the restaurant where they were greeted by the Front of House staff. Once seated the guests sipped on warm Tea and Coffee and gradually got up to select which sweets they desired. Many of the guests went back for seconds and thirds as the sweets were incredible.

Overall it was a very successful Event and we thoroughly enjoyed organising and running it and working along Susan and Angela. We are grateful to William Angliss and all of the Students and Teachers who helped us make our first event such a success.

This was part of our functions subject on behalf of Jan Watson our client. The lunch was held at the Angliss restaurant 555 Latrobe street Melbourne beginning at 12pm.

National Nutritional Week’s theme this year was try for 5 meaning try and add more vegetables into your daily diet. To show how easy it is to add more vegetables to meal was shown through the entrée and main for the day. By taking a standard Angliss food package, we were able to discuss with the chef to add the more vegetables without changing the overall feel to the food being served. Which was done successfully and at the end of the function many people commenting on the food.

Our Sponsor for the day was VIC Strawberries who donated strawberries to be placed on the table for the customers to eat between meals. We also had strawberries to create a complimentary mocktail for guest to enjoy before their desserts were served. Vic strawberries also provided a book mark and a recipe to place on the table to provide more information about themselves and what they could create with strawberries.
We would like to say a big thank-you to the farmers and growers of VIC Strawberries for supporting the students with their new season produce.

The Royal Australian Regiment Association held its annual dinner in the William Angliss restaurant for its fourth year running on Wednesday the 15th of November 2017.

In a gathering that brings together those who may not have a strong sense of family and support coming home from wars fought.

Eighty two of the members sat down for a two course dinner surrounded by styling of an Australian native theme of Coin Gum and Jyp, styled by Emma.

Stage One Diploma of Event Management students demonstrated their newly found knowledge of event planning skills for the functions subject. A successful function which involved client meeting, planning, styling and front of house coordination.

Students will continue to build on these event management skills and benefit from this experience.

Barefoot Bowls for WAI Staff

On Tuesday October 31st, the stage 2 Diploma of Events Project Management Students from ‘Memento Events’ created an event to celebrate Halloween in the most traditional way of course, with Barefoot Bowls! William Angliss Institute staff were all invited to un-wind, grab a drink and play some bowls down at the local Flagstaff Bowling Club.

With snags and burgers cooking hot on the BBQ, accompanied by some killer tunes and a sneaky appearance from the sun, the evening was set. Soon after having a feed the attendees got into a friendly/competitive (you decide) game of bowls. The event went well with all that attended having an enjoyable time.

Singapore Trip Day 4: Gardens by the Bay

After we went to Marina Bay Sands observation deck and ate some lunch, we made our way over to Gardens by the Bay.

Gardens by the Bay gave us a beautiful insight to what Singapore nature has to offer. Surrounding us from all angles were bright high top solar panel trees starting from the bottom which was a bright green bushes,eventually making its way up to the head which was the solar panel

The gardens also offer anyone with the chance to go through a walk high in the trees exposing you to breath taking views.

Unfortunately Veronica and myself didn’t make it to the waterfall, however the rest of the team went and were very pleased to share with us how much fun they had. IMG_6618 IMG_6619
