SPRING OPEN WEEKEND 2018: 10 THINGS YOU WON’T WANT TO MISS

As the three-week countdown to our PapaKåta Spring Open Weekend 2018 begins, we’re busy making the final preparations for your arrival on the 17th & 18th March. It won’t be long now until our beautiful Teepees and stunning Sperry Tents are in position at Escrick Park.

Over the last 12 years, we’ve had the privilege of working with some wonderful people on fabulous events. As the 2018 Wedding and Event season approaches we’re keen to share some pearls of wisdom and tricks of the trade with you. As if that weren’t enough of a reason to join us, here are 10 reasons why coming to the PapaKåta Spring Open Weekend on the 17th & 18th March is a great idea…

1. Working in partnership with Wedding & Event Planner Natalie Hewitt, we’ll be showcasing our ‘Romantic Meadow’ colour and design scheme. Helping to inspire and excite you for your own event with beautiful florals and timeless tablescapes.

With impeccable attention to detail and elegant styling as hallmarks, Natalie Hewitt will be bringing additional style and sophistication to the Spring Open Weekend. Meet with Natalie during the open weekend to chat through your event dreams and plans and you’ll soon see why Natalie has built a reputation for her professional planning and the personable rapport she has with her clients and supplier colleagues.

2. As trends and styles evolve, so too do our carefully selected Finishing Touches. Every Open Weekend we showcase new bespoke items to accompany our existing edit of luxury furnishings. The Open Weekend is the perfect opportunity to see first-hand our finishing touches, those items that will help you to create your dream wedding and event looks. As well as helping you to envisage your day, you will be able to play around with ideas, try out our seating options and create your bespoke floorplan – tape measures at the ready!

3. The Spring Open Weekend’s ‘Romantic Meadow’ styling will be brought to life with beautiful blowsy florals by the very creative and talented Rose & Spade and Leafy Couture. Expect earthy tones in textural asymmetrical styling and organic arrangements cascading from our floral hoops and beams. Using purple hues as a subtle nod to Pantone’s colour of the year Ultra Violet and an accompanying spectrum of blush pinks, browns and greys, the look will be elegant and timeless. Added sparkle will be provided by classic taper candles and PapaKåta favourites -fairy and festoon lights.

7. We’re so lucky to have had our Teepees and Sperry Tents immortalised in Dominic Wright’s beautiful images on more than a few occasions.
