We are currently studying the stage 1 Diploma of Events Management. On Monday the 28th of June 2021, the team from MACK Events with Kaja as Administrator, Adriana as Front of House, Caitlin as Beverage co-ordinator and Mikaela as the Stylist, had the opportunity of hosting and organising the End of Course Celebration Dinner for the Aviation student group in the William Angliss Restaurant.
The theme on the event was “In flight with William Angliss”. This was achieved through creating a runway using orange and black table runners, use of small planes on the tables, and creating clouds using cotton balls with fairy lights underneath. The client and guests were extremely happy with the styling.
We conducted our briefing with the ops class and teacher once finalising styling bump in to outline the event, what service we will be providing, the set menu for the night and delegating staff to both floor and bar sections.
Guests arrived in the foyer for registrations at 6:30PM and began flowing through the event space at 7PM.
A welcome address was conducted shortly after by the course coordinator, Steve with mains to follow. Dietaries were consulted and served first. For all other guests we did an alternate service of beef sirloin or grilled chermoula chicken.
A selected students then spoke about their experience during the course and thanked the teachers. Dessert was then served afterwards with tea and coffee. Dessert was a chocolate and raspberry parfait.
The service was done efficiently by the ops team who ensured all the correct cutlery and cups were on the tables and attendees were well looked after. The service of mains and dessert rolled out all on time as per the event running sheet which resulted in no customer complaints.
Our customised cocktail of an ‘Aperol Spritz’ and mocktail of a ‘Sweet Sunrise’ were very popular amongst our attendees. We operated a cash bar service and attendees really enjoyed the different cocktails and drinks we served throughout the night.
Overall, our team MACK Events and our client Steve were really happy with the outcome of the event.
