▶ Surprise Birthday Party ◀

Today's event was a Surprise Birthday Bash. It was kept completely secret by the b-day girl's boyfriend, friends and co-workers. She came to the Swan under the pretense that she was having a site visit on behalf of her company. When she came into the room there was an explosion of party poppers from all her friends and family. It scared the socks off me, so I can't imagine how startling it would've been for her considering she was the center of attention and had no idea what she was walking into.

The theme was country party with retro games. They had Space Hoppers, Croquet, Dominoes and an enormous Connect Four. They also had the not-so-retro Wii connected to our projector and screen.

As you can see, the room is decorated with colourful bunting flags and throws. Additionally, you can see hay bails that really add to the country ambiance.

I know these photos are a bit repetitive but I really love how colourful everything is.

So again, a really lovely and unique event to have seen.

♡♢♤♧ Alice in Wonderland ♡♢♤♧

So we had an Alice in Wonderland 60th Birthday. It was very cute with croquet, flamingos, gingham and a twisted afternoon tea. Let's dive on into it.

We served a cocktail called "G & Tea" which was made with Earl Grey infused gin, soda and a garnish of lemon. It was served in vintage teacups and topped up by a vintage teapot. The guests were delighted with the presentation.

Mad Hatter all ready to go with the tea party.
