Weekend antics....

At the weekend we had our 1920s dinner. The evening passed all too quickly but here are a few photos that I managed to take before I hit the elderflower champagne cocktails !

The room 

The table - with golden animal place markers

Strawberry Margarita canapés! awesome (all the booze is in the mint jelly)

Homemade marshmallows

Me in my 1920s kit

But now it's back to Monday reality and I'm planning to get my knitting out this evening for a bit of Christmas present knitting.

Roaring 20's

We took the children back to England for half term so its been a little quiet here on the blog.

But now I'm back and I have a 1920s Dinner Party to organise for next weekend. I don't normally go to quite so much effort for a DP but its our two year anniversary of moving to France and after a mix up where a friend thought it was fancy dress.....well it just had to be. 
So here's my moodboard. I'm thinking all things gold, glittery and unhealthy amounts of luxe......

Gold Balloons Brittanickel

(any excuse to use the gold spray paint)

I need one of these Design Darling

oh and one of these too Sparkly meets Pop
