Benson’s plan and deliver a lavish private birthday bash for the ultimate VIP

It was a combination of the excellent event planning and creative entertainment which guaranteed an occasion to remember for one very lucky lady.


Benson’s owner Hayley Selway had the ultimate VIP client to impress – her mum! Hayley embarked on putting together a night to remember for her mum’s 70th birthday celebrations.

In the beautiful surroundings of the 17th century Nailcote Hall, Hotel Golf and Country Club, Hayley dressed the stunning venue using chair covers, room backdrops, balloons and table centrepieces. The look was completed with Benson’s very own vintage sweet cart displaying an array of retro sweet for guests to enjoy.

The guest of honour arrived in style in a classic vintage car where she and some of her closest family and friends, who had travelled from all over the world, were greeted by amazing stilt walkers and fire performers. The evening’s entertainment started with music from top singer Chris King and the resident DJ kept the party going until the early hours.

If that wasn’t enough, Hayley set up a pop-up photo booth to provide hours of fun for guests and a professional photographer was on hand to capture all the special moments.


Loretta, Hayley’s mum, said “I had such a wonderful night. I don’t know how Hayley managed to pull all this together without me knowing! Everything ran so smoothly and was planned to perfection!”
