For this magical evening, I was working for Mask Events, a full service, bespoke events agency that strives to break the mould of traditional events and are part of the Concerto Group. The event was a book launch to celebrate Winnie the Pooh’s 90th birthday. The evening was hosted in a marquee in the Roof Gardens, Kensington and a beautiful job was done by Mask to style the event in creating a world where Winnie the Pooh would have felt right at home! The stories created around Winnie the Pooh are just so iconic and really beautifully written that this special occasion called for a particularly special kind of evening to honour them.
Christopher Milne, the son of A.A Milne had named his toy bear after Winnie, a Canadian black bear he often saw at London Zoo, and “Pooh“, a swan they had met while on holiday- little known fact for the day folks!
