Birthday 18 years Alessia
A surprise party for Alessia’s 18th birthday on the family estate in Tuscany, exactly in the village of
Scansano, where the best wine in the world is born.
On the cape, with a spectacular view, we have erected a 200 square meter tensile structure for lunch, and
another smaller one for the kitchen. I chose a very minimal setting, where the green of the beautiful olive trees and vines framed the enchanting residence. From the main house the cape was not visible, so the birthday girl could not see what we had built for her.
The party started with appetizers and drinks on the terrace of the main house, full of all the Neapolitan
delicacies: hanged provolone, freshly made mozzarella, eggplant parmigiana, various pizzas and much more
To accompany the good food, of course, the fantastic wine of the house owner.
The fun was ensured by a very charismatic band, “Musica da Ripostiglio”, which managed to perfectly
entertain the guests, making them sing and dance.
They could not miss the typical Neapolitan and Sicilian sweets: curly and shortbread sfogliatelle, babà, mini
pastiere, cannoli, and tarts. The table was set up strictly on the theme of nature, with trunk backsplashes
and raw wood trays.
The cake, a fresh and tasty Nude Cake with berries, delighted the guests.
In the evening, to end the party in the best way, everyone ended up in the pool and enjoying the music
from the disco for the kids and an open bar.
It was a unique experience, organized in just over 2 months, born from the idea of the landlord who
wanted his guests to enjoy the beauty of the estate and to spend a day of celebration in the countryside.
And the surprise was incredible…
