If ever there is a Burns Supper to be at, this is most definitely the one!
WeeBox was honoured to be part of the annual Burns Bash LA to raise finds for Bafta LA’s Scottish Scholarships which provides financial support to Scottish students studying the creative arts in the US.
The star-studded event to toast the Bard, Robert Burns was held at the Fairmont Miramar Hotel in Santa Monica.
Each guest received a specially curated WeeBox brimming with Scottish joy from our braw Scottish Makers! Luxury Scottish Gold Hart candle, SixpennyBlue tablet, The Burns Supper book by leading expert Clark McGinn, Ross’s of Edinburgh rock, Burns gifts from D&C Supplies not to mention a very special consignment of 1901 Irn Bru which WeeBox arranged for guests to enjoy.
The Fairmont Hotel was transformed into a Scottish castle by the inspirational events designer Charley of Bluebell Events for the annual Bash, hosted by Scottish TV presenter, actor and writer Ross King MBE.
A highlight was sitting next to Sam Heughan who debuted his brand new whisky Sassenach Spirit! Sam, star of the hit TV series Outlander gave a riveting rendition of the ‘Address to the Haggis’ a traditional part of any Burns Supper.
The iconic Scottish singer Lulu sang for us, including Auld Lang Syne accompanied by Robert Burns’ fiddle brought all the way by The National Trust for Scotland. The Selkirk Grace was given by John Reid, Elton John’s manager and of course the wee drams were provided by Sam and Sassenach Spirits.
A night to remember and it‘s safe to say, we gave it laldie!
“The WeeBoxes were the cherry on top of the cake that took the party to another level – thank you so much coming out here and all the effort that you put into making them all perfect” Charley, Bluebell Events
