This Halloween falls on Saturday 31st of October, which is not only a full moon but the Hunter Blue Moon.
In celebration of this once in a lifetime occasion Bella Events are set to host an exclusive cocktail party 8pm to Midnight at The Ritz-Carlton, Perth Club Lounge and terrace overlooking the magnificent Elizabeth Quay.
Expect a Blue Moon Gypsy Halloween cocktail party experience like no other with; Aboriginal twists, astronomy highlights and beautiful party entertainment featuring some of Perth’s most talented musicians and performers to enhance the evening.
Venture out onto the terrace to view a bewitching moon over the city. This October has the rare phenomenon of having two full moons, the Harvest Moon falling on the first of the month and the full moon known as the Hunters Moon falling on the 31st day. Being the second full moon of the month, this Halloween not only falls on a full moon but a rare Blue Hunter Moon.
Be it The Swan Valley, Margaret River, the Great Southern or Gascoyne Regions, Western Australia is recognised as a culinary paradise. Naturally being both a Bella Event and at the Ritz-Carlton, Perth the menu created for this special event is simply divine and will feature the very pinnacle of Australian produce.
The Hunter moon element will be bought in with executive chef Jed Gerrard live cooking Rottnest Island Scallops, almost at the very end of their season, this is a rarity not to be missed. The most beneficial and successful hunting and fishing is when the moon is overhead in the sky. On a Hunters Moon sunset and moonrise are closer, giving prolonged light at dusk during this time of the year, the reason why these moons have traditionally been used by hunters and fishermen.
Presented on ice: Mandurah crab, Exmouth king prawns, Albany oysters, scallops in half shells and an array of mayonnaise & sauces. We will play with Blue Scampi caviar to raise the bar and have some fun.
In Aboriginal culture this time of the year is known as Kambarang or the second late spring. Along with the seafood decadence the canapes will be flowing, defined by produce seasonal to Kambarang including substantial bites such as late-night Angus Beef sliders.
To complete the evening a unique Blue Chocolate fountain with fruits and smores.
Complimenting the delectable menu are Blue Moon cocktails on arrival, Leeuwin Estate Wines, Little Creatures Pale Ale & Rogers, Kirrin Megumi and Cheeky Monkey Brewing Co Ciders.
