Winter has gone, spring has sprung and Christmas is just around the corner!
Lansdowne House celebrated the end of winter with a grand Sunday lunch last week, now it welcomes in spring with blossom everywhere and the vibrant colours of daffodils and spring flowers.
Who can believe, however, that Christmas is on the horizon and plans are already afoot to book Christmas events!
And for the 12th year running, Lansdowne House is opening again for its famous Christmas Day lunch! Already several bookings have been taken so don’t delay your booking and risk disappointment.
The winter months have been busy with several 60th, 70th 80th and 90th birthday celebrations as well as a family reunion and a small conference.
Richard and Kadia have enjoyed every event and have loved the positive feedback from everyone on their Facebook. They are also touched by the many ‘thank you’ cards they have received.
Whilst everyone always praises Richard and Kadia for their food, especially their famous raspberry pavlova towers, their ice creams and sauces and their hot puddings – chocolate pudding being the favourite this season – they also commend their wonderful team – Greg, Lisa, Nicky, Sandra, Marama, Christine and Be´ne´dicte.
‘‘We are blessed to have them,’’ says Kadia.
Weddings are such a special time in everyone’s lives. They are one of the favourite events at Lansdowne House and their last wedding of the summer season was Natalie Bannister and Justin BlakelyPrice’s.
Their special day epitomised what Richard and Kadia hope to achieve with every wedding they host.
Natalie writes: ‘‘Thank you so much Kadia and all the staff at Lansdowne House. We had the best weekend ever. The planning leading up to the wedding went so smoothly, Kadia was so helpful and full of great suggestions and ideas.
‘‘The venue was set up so beautifully and looked even better than we could have imagined. And then there was the food – what a spectacular feast! Absolutely everything tasted amazing and we had so many comments how great the food was and how much there was – everyone was so full! We loved that they specially got in Coronas and sweet sparkling wine for us to enjoy. Everything went so smoothly and was just perfect for us and that was in huge part thanks to Kadia and her team . . . you really helped make special memories that will last a lifetime.’’
Kadia says: ‘‘Natalie and Justin are a super couple and we wish them every happiness for their future. We were delighted to see that Natalie came runner up in the Bride of the Year contest.’’
‘‘Natalie’s comments really do reflect what we aim to achieve with every wedding we host. This time last year we organised a wedding for 60 people in just three weeks which was equally successful so whether your time-frame is long or short, we are here to help. Just give us a call.’’
