‘Tis the season to get merry…

I can’t actually believe we are on the countdown to Christmas… it’s like literally next week!

Christmas is a time to be surrounded by your loved ones AND it’s all about the food and drink. This year I’m off to the in-laws for Christmas day; but before then I’m hosting pre-xmas drinks at mine with friends, then afterwards my family will be coming to mine for Boxing Day. I’m pretty sure you will have to roll me out of my house when this festive period is done! lol!

So if like me food and drink is a priority and sitting around a table eating, drinking, laughing and playing games is up your street, then todays post will offer some inspiration for some intimate festive dinner party ideas.

A few weeks ago I invited Noeleen from The Basement Florist, Louisa from street food catering Tuck In London and my lovely friend Binky from Binky Nixon Photography over for an intimate dinner party. The theme was festive and seasonal… delicious seasonal food surrounded by the prettiest seasonal flowers.

The girls brought round their bits whilst I sorting out my house for the gathering. For me a tidy house, a cool sound track, some colourful tasting platters, some beautiful flowers and candle light is all you need …

Drinking, Feasting and Raving at Dewsall Court

Where The Wild Things Rave Party…

Wedding and event venue Dewsall Court in Herefordshire has an amazing reputation for excellent service, beautiful grounds and serving delicious locally sourced food; so when we found out they were hosting a ‘Where The Wild Things Rave‘ party, we wanted to find out more.

It promised to be a summer night of adventure, discovery, feasting and raving… a night of immersive dinning, music and entertaining. Chase cocktails curated by mixologist Thom Williams would be served alongside the 5 course dinner which included pigeon cooked over apple wood, dandelion, mint, molasses and pork crackling AND a blackcurrant jelly fluff pudding with elderflower and angelica cream, ginseng and ginger root crunch… oh MY!!!

Over to Binky to tell us more about it…

Where the wild things rave was a truly magical event. Having never been to Dewsall Court and knowing very little about it, I was taken back on arrival by its sheer charm and beauty. 

We were welcomed with cocktails served by a mixologist wearing a crown and a fox
