bar store and production area. The
restrooms were covered by a 6-by-6-meter
Chinese hat structure.
Seven weeks in the planning-a
shorter-than-usual lead time, says Dany
Fremantle, events director for Oasis-the
celebration was held at a private farm,
with tents set up in a field beside the farm
and in a garden. Existing outbuildings
were also incorporated into the event.
" The client wanted lots of 'happenings,'
surprises and entertainment to create a
guest journey that was relaxed but with
a high-quality vibe, with investment
in anything to further this aim and no
unnecessary spending, " Fremantle
recalls. " So, for example, we used the
barns to build the arrival drinks around,
as rain cover in case it was wet, instead
of hiring an additional stretch marquee
for the garden, as suggested in our
original proposal. "
This farmyard drinks party was held
in the stable, which was decorated with
troughs (where the drinks were placed),
hay bales and small fires. Tequila shots
were delivered from a horse lorry. A
" street " leading away from this area was
created by cladding the party marquee
exterior in alignment with the theme.
( " It felt like a film set, according to the
guests, " says Fremantle.)
This street led to the entrance of the
saloon bar, outfitted with a large deck,
porch roof and bespoke swinging doors.
There was also a raised " trading post
area " with a bank, store, dynamite shop
and so on. A long bar with scenic details
and a full-height drape with party logo
projection (designed to suggest a solid
wall but one that could be opened to
reveal an LED nightclub with raised DJ
platform) were additional touches.
Oasis provided/sourced every element,
including the dancers, activities/games,
three bands, a DJ, an actor posing as a
sheriff who emceed the party-even the
sawdust and hay bales. The company also
hired and managed the other vendors,
such as the production and design teams,
casual labor, photography, catering and
bar teams, security, prop hire, live acts
and more. The build took nine days;
teardown required three days.
What excited her most about this
event? " The creativity made possible by
the client's desire to lean on the theming,
the confidence in our delivery and
the willingness to budget for things that
would make a big difference to the look
and the experience. "

Shown is one of three bars Oasis Events
scattered throughout the event site. This
one, running 8 meters long front and back,
was located in the " Saloon Bar " area of
the party, which was attended by 240
guests. Live performers danced on top
of the bar, further ramping up the fun.
" IT WAS EXCITING
BECAUSE THE
CLIENT TRUSTS US
TO CONCEPTUALIZE
AND REALIZING
THE ENTIRE DESIGN
FROM BEGINNING
TO END. "
