The Brief: 

To create a 'Dia de los Muertos', Mexican feast. Appetite Events collaberated with The National Museum of Scotland to say thank you to just a few of our valued clients. 
With a warm welcome from fire dancers on Chambers Street, and Mexican inspired cocktails and beers on arrival. Our guests were entertained during a drinks reception by a palm reader, face painter, stilt walkers and Rosa Parks supplying floral sugar skull style head dresses.
For Dinner, our guests were seated on a long banquet table, dressed with colourful glassware and linen, inspired by a Mexican family style banquet, and serenaded by a traditional Mariachi band.
