A 10 Year Birthday Party To Remember: Flint

At the beginning of June we threw a 10 year birthday party for Flint; a forward-thinking, creative hair salon located in the heart of the city on Upper Goat Lane and a firm favourite of The Norwich Lanes community.

We celebrated in the salon, transforming all three floors with lighting, decor and various drink stations. Guests enjoyed branded goodie bags on arrival, a selection of bespoke personalised cocktails , an exhibition of works showcasing their favourites from the past decade, balloons by DECK as well as a host of DJ's bringing the disco feels.

We began the process with an initial meeting with the owners then drawing inspiration for the mood board from Mid-Century Modern art and colours featured within the salon (red, dusty pink, sunflower yellow & monochrome tones) As well as referring to the company’s branding/ social media to ensure the style scheme we created was in-keeping with the overall aesthetic of Flint and was something the team would love.

Attention to detail was carefully considered throughout; from the hand-cut geometric paper cocktail garnishes, to the branded labels on the mini fizz bottles, bespoke geo stripes on the bar and coloured lighting to create a complete transformation of all floors.

THE DRINKS…

We designed two cocktails which we thought visually represented the salon with pop colour garnishes and stripy paper straws (see the ingredients below) We also chose Hop House 13 lager as it’s a delicious easy drinker and the branding was in-keeping, similarly with Karma cola and Lemony lemon as soft options.

The DJ’s pulled out all the stops on the middle floor with familiar faces from far and wide including Our House and Bamboo taking to the decks for back to back action until the early hours playing everything from Prince to Acid House and George Michael to Chic.

All in all, a wonderful celebration was had by all and we felt delighted to be a part of it. Here’s to the next 10 Flint! x
