Aubin Corporate Event
On the 20th August 2015 we had the pleasure of being a part of Aubin Group, suppliers of Chemical Solutions for the oil and gas sectors special day and award ceremony in Ellon. The Company received a prestigious Queens Award for Enterprise in recognition of international trade.
We were excited to have the chance to spread our wings a little and move away from the more usual wedding events we help provide (which of course we love doing). Here at Thistle we were thrilled to be able to provide this extraordinary company with some lovely canapés, drinks and a family BBQ to keep them going throughout the day. We had such a good time and were so pleased that we just had to share with you all 🙂
So here is an overview of all the wonderful things that were going on:
Setting the scene – Venue: Marquee in the Car Park at Aubin
A medium sized marquee set up by Masquerade marquees of Esslemont Ellon. We had a lovely day of sunshine!…. It had a lovely relaxed feel about it with a warm breeze throughout the day. We had a small marquee of our own for our kitchen at the side of the main marquee, and we provided the tables for the food and all the linen, glassware, and crockery.
Our chefs took care of the canapés as waiting staff mingled with guests with canapés and offering drinks.
Invited guests mingled with staff and family members and it was nice to hear the speech by the owner of Aubin say how proud he was of all his staff and their hard work. It was a tremendous achievement and the Queens Assistant handed over the award.
It was such a nice day and everything ran smoothly and effortlessly. We were able to take some photos to share with you all. I hope you enjoy sharing our experiences.
