While Friday the 13th might send cold shivers down the spines of some, it was lucky for many at our second Ladies Day knees-up last week. Following the success of last year’s event, we invited movers and shakers from the interior design and manufacturing industries to our showspace in Manchester’s Neo building to celebrate the day in true Penketh Group style.
As is customary for any great Grand National do, glitz and glamour were the order of the afternoon. We kicked off proceedings with a Prosecco arrival at reception, overseen by our trusty office pooch Waldo. You can see him here, perched on top of our modular bar making sure fizz was flowing and all of our guests received a warm welcome.
Our makeshift drinks station was actually constructed using the Bene Pixel Box which enables countless creative configurations and innovative interior design – Prosecco bar included. Bene kindly provided us with a little something from the range to feature in our array of prizes which also included a Hotel Chocolat hamper, a night’s stay at the Macdonald Hotel, £50 to spend on Amazon, a voucher for The Alchemist and a bottle of Moët & Chandon champagne. Orangebox also very kindly donated a £100 restaurant voucher as a little extra treat for our fabulous guests.
These prizes didn’t come cheap though…
Guests were provided with fifty Penketh Pounds each to place their bets and exchange their winnings at the end of the day if their chosen horses reigned supreme. Our Bank of Neo notes featured some familiar Penketh faces and proved to be lucky for those who backed the winning names. Two races were screened at the event on our interactive Google Jamboard and were accompanied by sophisticated afternoon tea and plenty more fizz for cheers-ing!
During the day, guests also popped their businesses cards into a raffle bowl, with the winner clinching one of our beautiful floral centrepieces to take home…
So, all in all, a great day was had by everybody at our Ladies Day event. Thank you to everyone who came along to celebrate with us – we hope you enjoyed yourselves as much as we did and that the hangovers weren’t too terrible. Now all that’s left to do is look forward to our next event where we hope to see even more of you making our showspace a home from home.
