When Diana suggested she might be interested in having a Baby Shower, her sister Steph (@nobodyhatescake), took that suggestion - and ran with it! First call was to Gringlish Co, and Bahari Upstairs was quickly locked in as the venue.

From there her vision of blue and shades of pink was set, and ideas just flowed on from there. A long styled table, with a ‘Bahari banquet’ menu of share plates, meant guests enjoyed each other’s company with table service, whilst still free to move about the venue and mingle.

Florals by Brett Matthew John adorned the venue, lunch table and also bar, which also featured large cube cakes - and no less than 25 individually designed mini cakes for guests to take home with them!

It was a pleasure to be part of this special day!

It was such a pleasure to be part of Yasmin’s 21st celebrations! The afternoon was full of warmth, and had a gorgeous vibe with their close family and friends.

Yasmin requested peachy, pinks with hints of gold - so off we went!

The florals were by the talented Lulu Bird, and the long styled grazing table - went from savoury to sweet!

We also provided some roaming Canapes for guests throughout the afternoon.

Thank you for having us!

TESTIMONIAL

‘To say that Heleena made what I imagined my 21st to look like come to life is an understatement! She took everything I wanted into consideration and was so calm throughout the whole process. Everything ran so effortlessly on the day and we received so many compliments about how the food tasted, as well as how good it looked. Would recommend the team at Gringlish to anyone!!! Absolutely made the day!

From my Mum, ‘Thank you so much to Heleena and the rest of the Gringlish team for making Yasmin’s 21st so amazing. We can’t wait to have them again for another occasion!’ - Yasmin Chalabi

Milestone Birthday | Maria Danos

Styled Grazing, The Gringlish Co

Floras, provided by Maria Danos

Venue, House

It was the night of Maria’s milestone Birthday, and boy was it a warm!

With no rain in sight, guests were treated to a poolside bar, a very generous offering of food - and of course, DJ beats!

The brief was moody, textural and sophisticated - and naturally when in an Architects house, you find yourself borrowing a few pieces from here and there ;) Maria also provided some gorgeous florals to complement the dark tones, and really ‘pop’ for some fun!

The result presented seamlessly with the party vibe, with guests alternating from the dance floor, to the Grazing table, to the bar, and back again - well into the night!

Thank you for trusting us with your vision, allowing us to bring it to life, and to be part of your special night!

TESTIMONIAL

‘As delicious as it was visually arresting, the grazing sensory feast created by Gringlish instilled plenty of hellenic 'meraki' in my milestone birthday event. Heleena's collaborative spirit and talent beautifully captured the brief for a textural, moody and sophisticated centrepiece greatly enjoyed by my guests.’ - Maria Danos

Christina’s Bridal Shower was a luscious - Glam affair! Ombre was the brief, drawing from blushes, pinks and, burgundy makeup tones - the venue and florals were styled to boot!

When the venue is a florist itself, one can only imagine the possibilities. High ceilings, green window displays - the scene was set for a stunning outcome.

Staff roamed with Gringlish Canapes, and a few signature Cocktails - whilst guests helped themselves to our precisely styled Grazing Table, enjoying a bit of #gringlishglam wherever they went!

Our never-ending dessert bar, styled to perfection with the talented ‘Nobody Hates Cake’, floated above a concrete counter and added that ‘sweet- sweet’ end to a gorgeous afternoon.

It was a pleasure to be part of this beauty’s special day, thanks again for having us!

Having Gringlish Co was a no-brainer for me when looking for something with a Greek twist, but a modern-styled aesthetic. Everything they did on the day, worked seamlessley with the vision, and tasted delicious too - and that Grazing table, just WOW!!! Thanks so much team! - Christina & Mark

It was a balmy Sunday afternoon in March, and along with close family and friends, Christine celebrated her milestone Birthday… #gringlishstyle!

This was our first official Cocktail Party in the brand new event space ‘Upstairs’ at Bahari - and what an afternoon it was!

Gorgeous blooms adorned the bar and formed the backdrop for Grazing & a bespoke illustrated cake. With the bar in full swing, guests moved freely around the space and flowed out to the private courtyard.

Wait staff roamed around with Canapes throughout the event, with some guests preferring to stand and others opting to make use of the comfy perimeter seating.

With our own pool of preferred suppliers, our team coordinated & styled this event from concept, to execution - and it was a pleasure to see the space all dressed up for Christine’s special day!

We look forward to holding many more events in this space, and being part of people’s occasions in the future!

Thank you Gringlish & Bahari, who coordinated my 60th from A to Z in their fabulous new space, you and your staff excelled. From the fabulous grazing, the amazing canapes - to the decor, what a wonderful afternoon it was my with family and dear friends - Christine :)

It was an energy filled day! Everyone was in full swing preparing for little Paul Jonathon’s big day. With a gorgeous house serving as backdrop, the perfect garden-party scene was set. Balloons arrived, as did the tropical greens and party furniture - and the vision began to come alive!

Peach, greens, whites and hints of gold were the call of the day, which complemented the outdoor garden-vibes seamlessly.

Drinks were a'flowing, canapes were roaming, and the music was getting louder and louder - exactly as it should! With guests partying well into the early hours of the morning (whilst little PJK slept!) - it was definitely a party his loved ones will remember for a long time to come!

Thank you for trusting us with your special event, it was our absolute pleasure being part of it!

TESTIMONIAL

'Heleena's enthusiasm, amongst many other of her other wonderful qualities, was what made our Son's Christening, the truly spectacular evening that it was. Heleena went above and beyond to assist with sourcing and coordinating suppliers for the event - from furniture to kitchen hire, florals, and most importantly, the cake! The Gringlish Co perpared the ultimate canape menu, plentiful for 150 adults and even a 'Gringlish Happy Meal' for the kiddies! Guests grazed on the delicious selection of food in a wonderful garden setting, booze flowed freely and well, and after we put our 8 month old to bed - we partied well into the night!

We couldn't have imagined any other event company bringing such a special party to life and we're ever so grateful for truly the personal touch The Gringlish Co brought to our event. Until next time - Angela, Luke & Paul Kounnas :)

It was a gorgeous Sunday in March, the Glenferrie Road festival was in full swing, and we were in amongst it at our new fave venue 'The Kilburn' - for baby Conrad's big day!

Conrad's Mum requested an abundance of food for her guests, with grazing upon arrival and canapes to roam around - not to mention a styled gold and marble dessert station, to really set off the event! Guests were treated to free flowing drinks, good vibes and our Chef Philip Vakos' tasty creations for the afternoon.

Thank you for trusting us with your little one's special day, we had an absolute ball being part of it!

This year marks the Greek Centre's 31st Lonsdale Street Festival, and it was lots of fun being involved!

The Gringlish Co catered for 400 guests at the 'VIP Event' on Saturday 10th Feb, with our staff roaming around with canapés for the evening.

We then provided some styled Savoury & Dessert Grazing to all of the Event Sponsors, the following day.

Event colours were purple and white this year, so off we went to create a table to match the festival vibe!

[ The very, very short version ]

The moment we got engaged, was naturally the moment the Wedding questions began!

It wasn't long after, that we decided to avoid any sort of build up, and 'help' from our Greek families - and spring a Wedding on them... in our very own 'Gringlish' style!

Invitations were sent out for an Engagement Party at The Panama Dining Room, and half way through we surprised guests with a civil ceremony! Once formalities were over, we then announced our Official Greek Church Wedding - for the very next day!

Proceedings followed the day after at North Balwyn Greek Orthodox Church at 5pm, with a party at home afterwards that went well into the night.  

What a weekend of fun it was, and we were so honoured to have our family and friends present - clearing their schedules last minute, to be with us for what turned out to be the entire weekend!

Having taken care of all the details, planned, styled & catered the weekend's events ourselves - we were well and truly looking forward to our honeymoon!!

....and so 'Gringlish Style' was born.

Baby Shower | Zoe & CHRIS

Styled Grazing & Canapes, The Gringlish Co

Bar Duties, The Gringlish Co

It was such a pleasure to be a part of Zoe's Baby Shower.

An afternoon celebrating the upcoming arrival of a little one with close friends and family - simply calls for grazing, canapés, a garden bar and some gorgeous sunshine! Right?

Well, that's exactly how this afternoon unfolded.

Keeping the gender of the baby a secret, Zoe preferred grey and silver tones, and provided green and white floral touches. 

With her brief received... off we went to bring her vision to life!

The outcome, was a 2.7m styled, both savoury (2/3) and dessert grazing table (1/3).

Guests grazed away all afternoon at their leisure, whilst some '#gringlishstyle' canapes were served by our roaming events staff.

Bar duties were also on us, with champagne and spritzer's a-flowing!

We'd like to thank both Zoe and Christopher, for having us share in their special day!

testimonial

The team at Gringlish Co. did an exceptional job at my Baby Shower in December. Everything from the Grazing Table, to the unique canapes, to the staff - the day was exactly how I envisioned it to be. I had mounds of compliments from my guests relating to the quality and taste of the food. It was great to see an innovative catering company provide such a fantastic service and product - with such professionalism.
I would certainly recommend Gringlish Co. to anyone having party, event or in need of catering at it's finest! - Zoe :)

 

 

 

Wedding | Nandini & Hari

Catering & Drinks, The Gringlish Co

Venue, Two Ton Max

Photography, Flipp Photography

When Nandini & Hari first approached us, the brief was clear; they wanted a night with character, something that represented the two of them - and of course something their guests might not exactly expect!

Coming from traditional Indian families, this gorgeous couple spent a week full of festivities celebrating their culture and their commitment to one another. The reception to conclude the week, at Two Ton Max however, did not involve any such traditions!

The couple started off their first dance as one might expect, 'At Last'...but this soon turned to a choreographed routine - featuring a mix of R'N'B classics to Bollywood - and had the whole room up and dancing!

Greek food was then served, and so 'Gringlish'.... turned 'Grindian' for the night.

Canapés were served, alongside pre-dinner drinks to welcome guests. Once seated on long trestles, guests then enjoyed some 'Gringlish' style entrées, mains and dessert - all share-style food.

It was a pleasure to be part of this colourful night, and we wish Nandini & Hari, a life of happiness together!

- Gringlish Co.

Testimonial

'Big thanks to Gringlish Co for the spectacular food at our wedding reception! Heleena, Phil and the team at Gringlish worked hard to ensure our event was a raving success. The service was smooth and the food absolutely delicious! We are still receiving compliments from our guests! Going for a shared menu was a great idea, as it meant more dishes could be tasted by each person and everyone was catered for. We had so many vegetarians and everyone went home happy! Aside from the service on the day, it was very easy and enjoyable to work with Gringlish in the lead up to our wedding. They were approachable and enthusiastic, giving attention to details to offer the best for our guests! We really appreciate all the hard work and effort and would definitely recommend them to anyone looking for outstanding catering service!
Thank you so much guys!! :) Love, Nandini and Hari'
