Iso-Spiration – Week Four! Your Perfect Night In! Food, Cocktails & Music


Connection is the key to surviving and thriving during these challenging times, not only in the workplace but also at home with friends and family. The idea behind this week's iso–spiration is the ultimate virtual dinner party!

We’ve brought together some of our favourite event suppliers to take the fuss out of preparing a dinner party, covering food & wine, music and cocktails. To connect online, we like to use Zoom or Facebook Messenger however there are plenty of video conferencing options out there, so choose whichever you find easiest.

Order in with Clover Culinary Projects.
Dinner time! Let’s face it, we’re all using food delivery services, so why not take it up a notch and enjoy something fancy. Clover Culinary Projects are our pick and a delicious alternative to the usual meal from Uber Eats.

A few weeks ago, the team & I had our Friday night dinner delivered by the fabulous team at Clover Culinary Projects. The superchic caterers are now offering ‘Take Me Away’, ready-made meals to get you through lockdown and beyond. Their quick mid-week meals & long weekend lunches are perfect for when you just can’t be bothered cooking! Hot tip - when the tiramisu is back on the menu, hit order, you won’t regret it. Don’t forget to pick up a bottle of wine or three whilst you’re there!

Contactless pickup or local Melbourne & Mornington Peninsula delivery is available.

We've got the tunes too!

 Cocktail, Dinner or Dance.

Rutherford Entertainment’s motto is to provide ”unique entertainment experiences featuring Australia’s finest performers”. Why should that cease because of Covid-19? Like many of our favourite suppliers, Rutherford Entertainment have pivoted their event entertainment business and are now offering Encore: Virtual Entertainment, where you can have live musical acts, DJs, MCs and feature performers virtually at your next event.

Listening - Vogue Style Revolution [Podcast]
The Vogue podcast gives you an inside ear into the well-heeled world of fashion. Hosted by Andre Leon Talley, each episode features a number of much-buzzed-about topics—from what’s in the magazine to who’s making headlines to what everyone is talking about around the office.

Reading - The Making of a Manager: What to Do When Everyone Looks to You
by Julie Zhuo

“The Making of a Manager” is the first book by Julie Zhuo, VP of Product Design at Facebook. In “The Making of a Manager”, Julie shares her experiences and learnings with regard to her transition from being a personal contributor to becoming a manager. “This is a book about how someone with no formal training learned to become a confident manager” is the starting point for Julie’s book.

Watching - Being Elmo: A Puppeteer's Journey on Netflix
Every day, millions tune in to Sesame Street to see one of the world’s most adored and recognizable characters — a furry red three-and-a-half year-old monster named Elmo. Yet, with all of Elmo’s fame, the man behind the icon is able to walk down the street without being recognized. Meet Kevin Clash. As a teenager growing up in Baltimore in the 1970s, Kevin had very different aspirations from his classmates — he wanted to be a puppeteer. More specifically, he wanted to be part of Jim Henson’s team, the creative force responsible for delivering the magic of Sesame Street on a daily basis. With a supportive family behind him, Kevin made his dreams come true.
