Hilary Gay note

Posted 4th June 2014

We were at the fabulous Clissold House on Sunday to help Hilary Gay celebrate her 60th Birthday with 76 of her nearest and dearest. With the sun shining all day and late into the afternoon Clissold House really was the perfect venue with it’s large and plentiful windows and gorgeous park setting. Guests enjoyed champagne and canapés on arrival consisting of: coconut and coriander dhal on a poppadum with green mango, roasted butternut squash with shitake mushroom and lemon and poached pear and Roquefort with red onion marmalade on walnut bread.  The below menu was then served before guests danced the night away…


Fennel carpaccio and shallot with lemon oil and dill

Roasted red peppers and courgettes with basil pesto

Grilled asparagus with rocket and balsamic


Pan-seared sea bass with baby spinach and white wine sauce,

Sun-blushed tomato and fete cheese frittata with a white bean puree and lotus root

Mini desserts

Mini baked cheese cake

Pecan pie

Summer berries

All with an accompaniment of Chantilly cream.

Hilary was kind enough to email us after the event to thank us for our part in making it a special day for her…

“I was delighted with the party and my guests have all been praising the excellent food as well as the great service by your team. I should mention too that my vegan guest was really impressed with her meal. 

You all contributed hugely to a super successful birthday party, and helped to make it a pleasure for me too – I couldn’t have wished for anything more!

It goes without saying that I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Boulevard Events for a special occasion,”

We are absolutely delighted that we were able to contribute to such a fabulous birthday celebration at such an astonishing venue. Thanks Hilary.
