We were delighted to style and celebrate the Grand Launch of the brand new Cordis, Auckland. A mix of urban chic and youthful contemporary vibe, glamour and celebration, orange and black, cocktails and gourmet donuts, this was one fantastic party…

Here’s how it all came together:

Black carpet treatment

Following formalities and the cutting of the ribbon (orange, of course) under the porte-cochère, guests followed the black carpet into The Great Room to a powerful Maori Powhiri.

A photo for posterity

Pictive came to play, capturing glamorous guests against an equally glamorous Cordis Orange Wall, with a custom paper flower frame.

Celebrity guest and hotel mascot, Codi the Red Panda made his first public appearance, and was in hot demand!

With Pictive’s Live Print, guests took away branded images on arrival – an instant branded keepsake of this special occasion, while social media share stations enabled instant celebration of the event on Facebook and Instagram. Brand activation 101.

Celebration chic

Mix, mingle and indulge was the order of the evening. Cocktail tables, relaxing lounge spaces, highs and lows, rich gold and navy elegance, sprays of fresh blooms.

The striking Event Impressions Wiffle-wall framed the room, oozing modern contemporary sophistication.

A centrepiece like no other

The magnificent Event Impressions ribbon chandelier, styled with Cordis gourmet donuts, was the talk of the room. Just one tug at a ribbon, and sticky delight was all yours!

Magnificent Cordis hospitality

Guests were challenged to try every variety of food, tables over flowing down the length of the room – with oyster shucking, a ‘lawn of tasting delights’, decadent desserts, mushroom waffles and cheeses for every palette.

Teamed with champagne, custom Cordis brews and Cordis cocktails, nobody was left wanting.

And dancing at a cocktail party… Yes… Yes, there was! The smooth entertainment… just perfect. That’s how you rock a very special Wednesday night, Cordis style!

With a little help from Event Impressions.

“It’s one thing to be recommending a supplier to clients, but then when you are the client, and it’s the biggest event for the company in the past 10 years, and your Boss’s Boss is flying in…that’s when you really need your supplier to deliver on everything they’ve promised.
Event Impressions did… From their spot-on interpretation of my initial brief, through design, costing and implementation on the day, there is very little they could have been done better.

And the positive feedback my Boss received from his Boss speaks for itself.”
