This past weekend has been a full on celebratory 'pink' weekend!  The house filled with my daughter's closest girlfriends, all staying to belatedly celebrate her 21st birthday which was back in March.  She didn't want the BIG party on this occasion, although she is very much a party kind of girl, but to have a more intimate celebration with her best girl friends, her brothers and grandmother and us. What fun we had!

When we designed and built this house four years ago,  it was always with the intention for it to be enjoyed by everyone.  A place to relax and unwind and enjoy the peace and tranquility, but also a place to fill with family and friends and to party! Although our three children have almost all 'flown the nest', it is still and always will be their home, and a place for their friends to always feel welcome too.

The house has been filled with much girlie laughter and chatting, and I have loved it.  The energy, spark and enthusiasm that these girls had was infectious.....and the noise level high!

Georgie is my talented little chef, with a true passion for cooking and food. Having spent the last two years cooking for private clients in England and around Europe, and about to go off to Val d'Isere in the French Alps to cook in a beautiful private chalet for the winter season.  It was therefore no surprise that her birthday weekend was to involve good food!

Saturday started with a welcome tea party here for the girls with Georgie's beautiful home made cupcakes!

With everyone glammed up for the evening, champagne followed and then on to The Swan at Chapel Down Winery, for a fabulous dinner for 12 at the 'chef's table' - delicious and highly recommended.  Home afterwards for dancing, where the ones with the most stamina were still  partying at 5 am........

Happy, happy birthday darling Georgie! xxx
