I started my day at 4.45am to head off to the Flower Markets at Flemington. My Mum and I were doing the wedding flowers of a friend (nothing too big, just a few bouquets and bits) so had to go and get the flowers, get them arranged and off to Woollahra by 10am. That place is so amazing. All that activity. The colour. The people. The trolleys. The scent. I LOVE it.
Our brief was simple. Pink. Hot pink.
My Mother got the shits with all the cars there and parked not once but TWICE illegally. I was beside myself when they mentioned her car over the loud speaker and she had to go retrieve it. This sticker was whacked on the car. Goodness me! That rooftop parking is pretty ridiculous though…I think you have to get there at 4am to get a spot.
Two bouquets were delivered to a beautiful and excited bride. There’s nothing much better than a wedding is there? Maybe a new baby, the weddings usually involve more champagne.
I then hot footed it across the Eastern Suburbs to a ladies brunch to celebrate a 40th Birthday. So many fabulous people celebrating their 40th this year hasn’t there been? 1972 was quite the year. I looked tried and disheveled and not in my resort wear which was disappointing.
There was a man providing delightful treats. And collecting plates. And offering Bollinger and mojitos. His name was Ron and I think each and every one of those 25 ladies asked if they could take him home. So attentive was our Ron!
He even buttered your banana bread for you on request. He liked the way I called his jam Blueberry compote. See? Match made in heaven!
Mojito’s in the am? Why thank you VERY Much. I actually didn’t have one. I was driving.
What a special treat to catch up with some beautiful family on a Friday morning in the Spring sunshine.
Her sister gave her this FABULOUS Camilla Frank number for her Birthday.
And she got these numbers from her husband. They were most definitely not from Diva. I’m getting all sorts of wonderful ideas for my 40th…
Later tonight we are off to the Wedding and a good old catch up with friends by the sea. Until then I have to sort out these bags under my eyes and some resort wear. BIG day, BIG issues. Happy weekend!
