More About Pearls of Wisdom

Everything You Need For Your Next Get-together

Oyster Venom has created a range of Pearls of Wisdom Guides which offer the whole kit and caboodle for great nights in with your friends. 

Food and drink suggestions with ideas about menus, food and drink pairings, leaning new skills, along with setting the scene, adding music and finishing touches.

We want to give you the ultimate to-do list for ultra-memorable times with those you care about.

Here’s what’s included:-

Detailed Recipes

You will receive recipes for the whole meal, so usually that would be something to nibble with pre-dinner drinks, then a starter, followed by a main course an then a dessert to finish.

Music Playlists

We take the hassle out of creating a great atmosphere using great music.

Drinks Ideas

Suggestions for pre dinner drinks and wine or beer with the meal.  We always include an interesting alcohol free option as well as ideas for drinks with desserts or a good digestif.

Setting the Scene

Sending out invites, what you will need in the way of crockery, cutlery, glassware. How you decorate the place.

Master Shopping List

All the ingredients you will need in the form of a checklist so you can tick off what you need and what you already have. Then you need to multiple it by the number of people you want to invite.

“To Do” Timetable

We believe that planning is everything, so we include your list of what you need to do and when, so that you wont forget anything and you will find the whole preparation much easier and stress-free.
