Three weeks ago I was invited to attend a party at One Mayfair hosted by by By Appointment Only Design. As I’ve said a few times in similar posts to this one, I always feel a little unnerved and perplexed as to why I get invited along to these things…this party was being dubbed on the inter-webs as being the swankiest of all the swanky events, so I brought my friends Emma Case and Shell de Mar (who took these fab pictures for us) along with me to hold my hand. I promised them a free cocktail or two so it didn’t take much persuasion!
When I thought about how to write up this event, I felt strongly that I didn’t want this post to be the usual industry party report style – “Oh it was faaabulous daaarling, the cocktails were divine and I swooped around the room like a princess all night…blah blah blah” because let’s be honest, what are you – my loyal readers and brides-to-be going to get out of that!? (for the record the event was bloody incredible in fact, and my breath literally was taken away as I walked into the pink lit – inside and out! – venue)
I am well aware that I’m exceptionally lucky to get invited to a soirée like this, but I’m also keen to make sure that the things I take away from them, and report back about, are relevant to you guys too.
