The PapaKåta Spring Open Weekend

Written by Emma Hla
The PapaKåta Spring Open Weekend is almost upon us and if you haven’t got the 28th & 29th March blocked out in your calendar then you should. Here’s why…

PapaKåta will be showcasing their beautiful Tipis and Sperry Tents in the stunning setting of Escrick Park. Alongside their striking tents and luxurious finishing touches, there’ll be a fabulous supplier line-up and an event that’s jam-packed with style details and inspiration.

Team PapaKåta talk us through all the details…

Notes from PapaKåta

Colour palette and inspiration

You can expect beautiful light and airy styling at our Spring Open Weekend, the perfect antidote to recent winter months! The fabulous Victoria Ivy Floral Design will ensure the scheme is soft, modern, and reminiscent of an English Country Garden. With installations of beautiful seasonal blooms in a palette of dusky pink, smokey mauves and the occasional pop of blue.

As authentic as the English Countryside heroine, Jane Austen herself, the look will bring the same classical romanticism. Don’t be fooled by the mention of pink though, this is a grown up look that oozes timeless elegance. Carefully curated tablescapes elevate the rustic charm of the Tipis and Sperry Tents, making it the perfect space for an intimate celebration, or the party of a lifetime!

It’s all in the detail

There’ll be the full edit of PapaKåta’s bespoke event furnishings there for you to try and test. Take a seat, prop up a bar and be awe-inspired by the array of hanging installations on offer.

Textured linens by Just 4 Linen and intricately detailed tableware by Whitehouse Event Crockery will bring a beguiling luxury to the feel of the Sperry Tent and Tipis. Elegant glassware will be complemented by decadent crockery, and gold accents will give the overall look warmth and depth.

Luxurious event stationery by Wonderland Invites will add the finishing touches to the exquisitely collated tablescapes. Whilst stunning wedding and event cake inspiration and sweet treats by Cherry Blossom cakes will be, well, the icing on the cake!

Feasting and entertainment

In contrast to its rural heritage, The Work Horse Bar will be bringing the glitz and glamour with tantalising tipples to tickle your taste buds! Who doesn’t want to spend their Saturday and Sunday quaffing raspberry and glitter embellished Prosecco and Pink Ginberry Cocktails whilst enjoying chillout tunes by the fabulous Club Class DJ’s?!

Meanwhile, Booth Revolution, the UK’s leading photo booth company, will bring their stylish state of the art photo booth to capture guests reactions on the day.


From the Sperry Tent’s hand-crafted canvas with its geometric design details, to the Tipi’s hand- milled poles; it’s the quality and heritage of the products and the dependability of the service that gives PapaKåta their reliable reputation. Coupled with 14 years of experience and a back- catalogue of some of the most memorable celebrations and glowing accolades, you know with a PapaKåta event you’re in safe hands.
