If you follow me on Instagram (and if you don’t, where’ve you been?!) then you’ll know last night saw my family come together for another legendary party at my stunning Auntie Angelou’s beautiful home under a marquee in her garden.


 We are family!


 Champagne cocktail anyone?

Stunning decor!

This time we were there to celebrate dashing Uncle Tim’s 60th birthday and it was utterly fabulous! Auntie Angelou’s luxurious home was turned into a cocktail bar/ al fresco restaurant with live music for the night and we couldn’t have asked for more!


For those asking on Instagram and FB, my dress is Motor Rocks, shoes are Dune! 

My family sure does love a party-laughing, eating and letting their hair down! Be it big family BBQ’s, birthday parties or elaborate christenings (see here for Alexander’s Christening Day), our gatherings are always bursting with fun, love, live music, great food and even better company!

 So close with my amazingly sweet, hilarious and photogenic cousins-

The camera loves my Aunts and Uncles-with Uncle ‘George Clooney’ as we call my Mum’s brother!


 Papa G having a laugh as always!


And now for the birthday cake…

So cool!

…The sun shone brightly as singers crooned to Frank Sinatra (and impersonators entertained us-yeah baby, yeah!) before disco hits rung out as we dined on a selection of sumptuous roast lamb, beef and chicken, potato dauphinoise, seasonal vegetables and Yorkshire puddings followed by vanilla cheesecake, chocolate profiteroles and exotic fresh fruit salad!

The fabulous entertainment got us all on our feet…



And made us laugh…a lot!

My darling husband Peter had the kids this time so I owe him the next party (promise, Peter)! He’s actually spent today laughing at me groaning over my sore head so I don’t feel too bad for him plus I brought him back a few party favours to cheer him up! Cheers!
