The Host Garden Party

By Chelsea Carter

Yesterday was our second host party, celebrating our national launch and our host ambassadors.


The Weather

After a day of torrential downpour, the prospects of a summer garden party seemed unlikely. However, the sun came out just in time for our host garden party. Co-founder, William Sieghart opened his home like many other hosts and welcomed them to share his house for the evening.


Vrumi Hosts were able to enjoy British summer at its best. The beautiful town house had a wonderful garden in bloom - a real haven within the hustle and bustle of central London. 


The Music

Welcoming all of the hosts was Ollie Clark, classical guitarist and friend of Vrumi. Arriving only with his guitar, he perched between the garden and the sitting room, entertaining the hosts as they greeted each other and exchanged stories.


Inside the house, the whole team got stuck in made the home as welcoming as possible, with food and drinks available for everyone.


The Wine

Will Lyons from the Sunday Times and Berry Bros & Rudd specially selected two wines for us. One red, and one white by the renowned Bordeaux family, JM Cazes. This was perfectly paired with our specially selected cheeses.


With the wine flowing, the hosts made themselves at home, mingling with each other as well as the Vrumi team - finding about more about the individual members, the website and insurance.


The Conversation

Once everyone had arrived, William led the group conversation. With a successful creative career behind him, he spoke of how Vrumi is being used to help people’s creativity flourish - in your homes. Roddy followed as a counter balance, the numbers man. He told the hosts that Vrumi is growing month on month, and that we have been able to launch across the UK.


Finally host community manager, Clare announced that we now have a reward system in place to anyone that refers new hosts. Named Host Ambassadors, these individuals are able to earn money not just from the space in their homes, but by getting their friends to list their empty space too.


Cheers to many of our hosts for braving the British weather!
