Out Of The Ordinary Events ‘Dining With A Difference’

Amidst the chaos of this past year and the lead up to Chloe’s 4th Birthday we thought we wouldn’t be able to do much for our little girl. But after receiving an incredible recommendation from a friend we were introduced to Out of the Ordinary Events who made our mid-covid birthday party not so ‘covid’. In fact it was pretty damn special. The set up was effortless, the design was absolutely stunning, the food was divine and we were given everything we could possibly need to make Chloe’s birthday really special.

We wanted to dedicate this post to Out of the Ordinary Events because they did such a wonderful job and it is obvious they love what they do. From the very small detail to the stunning end result, you can see Lyndsey and Emma have created a business that they are passionate about and one that is designed to make people smile! They’ve been kind enough to share a few words about their background, aesthetic and new, exciting things to come.. so enjoy!!

Out of the Ordinary events is an exciting new venture co-owned by Lyndsey Mitchinson and Emma-Louise Maw. 

Our creative service provides unique dining experiences delivered directly to your home or special location. 

Fancy a private dining experience? Then why not book our Woodland Dining table. This best-selling experience includes a fully dressed table, tableware, fur chairs and fairy light backdrop. We’ll even provide the food if you wish, we work with two local chefs who can offer graze boxes or a full bespoke menu.

We deliver and set everything up, then return and collect when the fun is over. All that our customers need to do is enjoy themselves! 

We come from fashion, brand marketing and experiential events backgrounds. We have over 20 years’ experience ranging from conferences and intimate PR events, to product launches and store openings for global brands.

Our career experience and shared love for creating unique parties for family and friends motivated us to launch Out of the Ordinary events.

The inspiration for our aesthetic comes from a passion for fashion, interior design and many of our own travel and dining experiences. Plus, a mild Instagram and Pinterest obsession never hurts! We love to share our bespoke dining experiences on our Instagram page @outoftheordinary_events. 

Many of the items offered within our experiences are designed and made by us. From the tipi, ‘Press for Prosecco’ bell and candles to hand sewn fur chair covers, tablecloths and napkins. We feel this makes our experiences ‘Out of the Ordinary’ and totally unique to our business.

We recently added a ‘Shop our Table’ section to our website where we sell our exclusive ‘hand-written candles’, which are all crafted in-house. We offer a range of designs and a bespoke service where customers can request their own personal messages.

As we continue to grow the Out of the Ordinary brand, we will be adding more products to the shop in the future and will be offering a production element to our service for brands big and small. 

If you have an enquiry you can get in touch with us via the Contact page on our website. We’d love to hear from you and to help make your special occasion Out of the Ordinary!
