Ahead of the wolfpack
In the middle of this dreary New Zealand winter it’s hard to believe that summer is on its way, but in just a few short months we are all going to be thawing out and getting ready for summer. That means one thing; parties!
Think of all the Christmas functions, BBQs, end of year parties and let’s not forget the numerous weddings that fill our calendars. That’s all great if you're like me and don’t have any major events of your own to plan this year (phew!) but if you are in the middle of planning your wedding or work party you are probably feeling more than a little overwhelmed right now. Don’t worry; help is on its way.
I had the pleasure of representing Thread this week in a very cool loft with some very cool people. The event was for The WolfPack. The WolfPack is a collection of event specialists who have come together with one purpose; to create beautiful and unique events.
The WolfPack is headed by Little Wolf specialist finger food caterers Marcel Leydesdorff and Emma Connell, whose passion is exquisite finger food and, in the words of Marcel, “To simply be the best”.
They have collaborated with other event specialists such as When Squirrel Met Bear, Bluebells Cakery, The Vintage Table, Raj Tent Club NZ, Be Beautiful Events, Lovely like You, Kate Grewal Photography, Harney & Sons, Floral Stylist, Olga Gill and The Great Hiring Company with the aim to make planning your next event simpler…and better.
At the launch they each displayed their talents and showed us what they could do for an event. The result was quite wonderful, a huge range of event ideas including delicious food presented in fun and unusual ways, flowers and moss hanging from the ceiling and a large Indian tent in the middle of the room.
So if you are in search of cake pops, anything vintage, stunning table designs and more then you know who to howl for…Little Wolf and their pack.
