Yelp Perth rolled out the red carpet for 400 Yelpers at our biggest event yet – Yelp’s Hollywood Boulevard Party.
Hosted in the stunning surrounds of The Bouelvard Hotel, their palm tree studded garden was filled with guests in fabulous fifties style fashion and the party directed the spotlight on some wonderful local businesses and brands including Nosh Gourmet, RedSpoon, Bettenay’s Margaret River Nougat Co.
Nosh Gourmet, RedSpoon and Bettenay's Margaret River Nougat Co looked after the sweet side of things. Nosh Gourmet had a range of their products including their delicious raw chocolates. RedSpoon served scoops of their incredible frozen yoghurt – the raspberry flavour was a crowd pleaser! Bettenany’s Margaret River Nougat Co had a collection spanning from classic to current, with flavours like pistachio and cranberry and salted caramel.
Our hosts, The Boulevard Hotel romanced us with delicious creations including oysters, arancini, mini burgers and more.
Thirsts were quenched on the balmy evening by delightful creations from Vinaceous Wines, Howard Park Wines, Kirin Cider and James Squire's Ales. It was so interesting to hear about each winery and brewery’s production process, and also about the new additions to their ranges – just in time for summer. Heading inside guests experienced the 1950s star treatment, with a gorgeous makeover from Huss Hair & Beauty.
In hot demand, there was a long line for the glamour photography sessions with Red Leopard Photography. Many longing gazes were cast over Miss La La Vintage’s range of original gowns and accessories from the era on display for the event.
The dance floor was full of twirling, and full skirts whirling with band, Alvin Young & The Shooting Stars playing rocking dance hits of the day. Yelpers took instruction from Cool Cats Rock 'N' Roll and learnt some steps for the songs of yesteryear. Sugar Blue Burlesque gave two tantalizing jaw-dropping performances throughout the crowd.
The Film & Television Institute of WA gave advice for those looking to continue their film career beyond the evening.
We had an amazing night shake rattle and rolling with you! Thank you to all the guests for coming. A special thank you to all the businesses involved and an even bigger thank you to the The Boulevard Hotel for providing a selection of their unbelievably tasty meals, and also their stunning venue for the evening.
