Event Highlight: Being Rihanna’s Caterer

During lockdown we have been looking back at some of our most spectacular events and Rihanna’s highly anticipated FENTY beauty event was one to remember.
Rihanna’s collection dropped in the UK and it was ahh-mazing! In celebration of the launch, Rihanna hosted the event of London Fashion Week, shutting down a street in Knightsbridge.
Event’s team Be Seen successfully transformed the lower-level of Harvey Nichols into a completely immersive experience, bringing the brand to life with their incredible imagination and production.
Tasked to match this setting with a Fenty worthy menu, SP founder Alex Head put her creative mind to work.

Here’s how we created a menu that got the official seal of approval from Rihanna herself…

 – Fenty Fortune Cookies-

SP hand-sprayed 900 fortune cookie’s which revealed personal FENTY messages from Rihanna…
“Ever wanted to be a Trophy Wife? You’ve come to the right place…”

– Kilowatt Donuts-

Inspired by Rihanna’s INSANE Killawatt highlighter we dressed a station of over 300 sparkling doughnuts…
All that glittered certainly was gold (& doughnuts)!

– Ombre Cotton Candy –

Arguably one of the most talked-about points of the collection, Rihanna’s range of 40 different shades of foundation was created to be inclusive of every single skin colour. So, how do you replicate that with food? Candy floss of course! The team created an ombre selection of our favourite sweet treats.


Requested by Ri Ri as one of her personal favourites – mini chicken and beef burgers created a taste sensation… pssst word was these went down especially well with Rihanna…

-Mac n’cheese Balls-

Who can go wrong with Mac n’ Cheese? Pop it on a stick and this little morsel of comfort food was the perfect refuel for the night of the dutty wining.

With hundreds of press, influencers and VIP’s in attendance, it was time to impress and even if we do say so ourselves, we certainly did that! However, don’t just take our word for it…

From #BadgirlRiRi’s mouth herself, Social Pantry are the BOMB!
