Adams & Adams turning 15…


In May Adams & Adams were celebrating 15 years of creating delicious food and staging unique events across the Riviera. In conjunction with the Riviera Insider and other partners such as Lamborghini, the event was staged at Le Manoir de l'Entag in Mougins.

On a mild spring evening the event kicked off at 19.30 with a welcome glass of fizz on the terrace of this wonderful boutique hotel nestled within the hills behind Cannes, in Mougins.

Throughout the evening the guests were entertained with live music whilst the Adams & Adams crew served a delicious array of canapés and of course some local rosé wine.

As the evening moved on and more guests started to arrive in greater numbers, the party started! With guests invited by the Riviera Press team and Adams & Adams, there were plenty of old friends getting together at the beginning of the party season and many others networking and making new friends.

Kate and the team at Adams & Adams are now getting ready for the festival and expo season starting with the Cannes Film Festival and the Monaco Grand Prix towards the end of May. Both events are a busy time for the team requiring precise logistics and time management due to the complications surrounding the event locations and the natural security in place in both Cannes and Monaco.

Over the past 15 years Adams & Adams has been present at these two famous Riviera events, catering for, and organizing functions for various international clients. Their local knowledge and on-the-ground relationships with suppliers has meant that no requests (no matter how bizarre...) have gone unanswered and solutions found.

Are you organising a Corporate Dinner Party?


Planning a corporate function means you have to make a lot of choices, which venue, transport, what kind of entertainment, menu options etc. etc. Unlike a diner party for friends, a corporate dinner required for more structure. It should be focused on your primary goal, whether that is rewarding existing clients, attracting new clients or motivating your team.

It all starts with choosing the perfect venue without falling back to conference venues or hotels. A private venue offers you a lot more flexibility and will help you create the right tone for your audience and event. If there are a lot of guests that are first time attendees, it might be a good idea to use name cards and seating plans to mix employees and existing/new clients. Before the dinner we advise you to have some cocktails and canapés to create a relaxed atmosphere and to enable the guests to mix and unwind before they sit down to enjoy the rest of the evening. It also allows you to informally welcome some first time guests, introduce them to other team members and to make everyone feel more at ease.

As food is an integral part of any dinner party and, in general there are 2 choices for a corporate dinner, a buffet or a sit down dinner. One advantage of a buffet is that it enables the guests to mix together whilst choosing their food, and it eliminates the issues with catering for allergies. However, if a more formal event is required with silver service, this would suit a dinner party for smaller groups, events aimed at new clients or if you are just looking for something more bespoke and elegant. Sometimes its a great option to switch seats after each course to ensure the guest will mingle.

During dinner there are different entertainment options from having a small jazz trio move around the tables to a smashing performance of french cabaret dancers. And then there is always the after dinner speakers, providing motivation and inspiration for colleagues and new clients. Whether humorous or topical, there are plenty of companies with a selection of different guests to choose from, ensuring the right speaker can be tailored for the look and feel of the event. After dinner you can finish the evening with a great DJ set to loosen the atmosphere and allow your guest to let down their hair before the evening comes to an end.

Whatever your choice might be, we can assist you in all aspects of organising a great corporate dinner party. From searching the venue to catering to selecting and arranging the entertainment. Contact us to see how we can help you make your corporate dinner party a success.
