    21st Birthday - Part One

    Hello friends,

    I don't know where to start... WOW, what a week it has been. Somehow my birthday turned in to a birthweek which was such a perfect way to turn 21 with all my wonderful friends and family around me. After the glorious Eden came over on Monday night to do Emma and my nails which you can read all about here. The week followed nicely on and you can catch up on it all this week!

    TUESDAY - The Dinner Party

    Early March my invitations were sent to my dearest friends. I brought these gorgeous Polaroid Notes from non other than Oliver Bonas and the date was set 2 days before my birthday as a pre birthday dinner.

    The decorations were mainly from Oliver Bonas too (if you couldn't guess - it's my FAVOURITE shop) they were just so cute and I couldn't resist. I wanted to make it feel homely yet as nice as being at a restaurant. 

     I am so lucky that Dejon is a chef so I knew he would cook up a feast. On arrival I served my friends with Pornstar martinis which is my current favourite cocktail!  

    For starters it was a selection of canapés which looked absolutely perfect! Then for the vegetarian main it was the delicious roasted butternut squash stuffed with quinoa, red pepper, carrots, spring onion and topped with halloumi! For the other main it was Aberdeen Angus rib eye, with beef tea and a mushroom purée. It was to die for!  Although we were pretty full for dessert we had a selection of British and French cheeses and some Krispy Kremes. 

    We had a champagne toast to finish the dinner party off before heading to Raffles to dance the rest of the night away!

    It was safe to say I will remember this evening for the rest of my life with some of my closet friends gathered round! The food was outstanding and they all said it felt like they were at a restaurant! 

    Check back tomorrow night to see what I got up to on my birthday! 

    Lots of Love,
