Watching the weather forecast all week, I wondered if the garden party would be wonderful or a wash out.
Summer is a little hit and miss at the moment in the UK – you can’t leave the house without taking both umbrella and sunglasses. However, fortune smiled upon us and sent some sunshine between the clouds.
The High Field is a gastro pub that always delivers fabulous food in a friendly and stylish setting (click here if you’d like to read about my previous experience). And I was excited to attend their garden party especially when I heard that The Glamophones were performing.
We sat by the fire pit and relaxed with a beverage of the alcoholic kind…
There was a selection of games to play…
…food to be eaten picnic style (with your fingers!)
We even had time for a card trick or two…
…and finally enjoyed the ladies performance of 40’s classics and modern pop songs all sung with beautiful harmonies in their unique vintage style.
It was a fabulous afternoon full of good company, great food and glamorous gals.
Here’s to a Summer of more of the same (fingers crossed!).
Tell me – what’s your idea of a great garden party? Who would you invite – real or imaginary; alive or dead?
Let me know in the comments below…
