Littleton Rose is founded on a shared passion for people, hospitality and attention to detail. Each of us has more than a decade of experience working in luxury events before Littleton Rose was born, and we can honestly say that we love what we do.
Katrina worked for a top London event management company where she organised events for both corporate and private clients. From here she moved to the prestigious London catering company, Rhubarb, as an Event Planner before setting up her own Event Planning business. Littleton Rose is the evolution of this company into a combined offering with Lexi, whom she worked alongside at Rhubarb.
Katrina's Favourite Event: A joint 18th, 21st and 50th birthday party entitled ‘A Night in Havana’ allowed us to get really creative, and bring a slice of Cuba to a marquee in our client’s garden. Introducing influences from their recent family holiday, we used tropical flowers and exotic fruit as table centres while palm trees and a starlight ceiling created a feeling of being under the stars on a beach in Havana. Vibrant Cuban flavours were used in the menu with dishes like Langoustine and Spiced Mango Salsa, while Dark and Stormy cocktails were being shaken at the rum bar. Cuban Cigar Girls were on hand while a fantastic Buena Vista Social Club Band brought the salsa rhythms of Havana to the Dorset coast.
Lexi freelanced for a variety of event agencies and catering companies before taking on an exciting Event Planning role at Rhubarb. From here she moved to Nobu as Director of Events for both their London Restaurants and their outside catering service; overseeing a broad portfolio of corporate and private events on a national and international stage. Littleton Rose became and continues to be the next exciting chapter!
Lexi’s Favourite Event: We loved being a part of planning an elegant, three-day wedding in South West London. The celebrations started with a welcome party at the iconic River Café where guests were treated to beautiful Italian tasting plates while they sipped on Aperol Spritz. The following day, guests gathered in Syon Park’s Great Hall for an intimate ceremony among delicate, dusky blooms. Dinner was served under the stars in the stunning conservatory, lit by an abundance of flickering candles. A relaxed brunch held at the bride’s parents home the following day rounded off the celebrations. Waiters circulated with mini bacon sandwiches and croque monsieurs while guests helped themselves to the Bloody Mary and fresh juice bar. The couple’s focus on creating an event with delicious food and a convivial atmosphere made this wedding a dream to work on.
