Apres ski themed birthday party at Kingdom

– As I sit here writing this, we have just entered the second lockdown of 2020 and with all the restrictions that entails, it’s actually quite hard to conceive of friends and family gathered together for a party at this moment in time.

Deborah and Gary were so lucky to be able to go ahead with this fabulous party back in February at Kingdom in Penshurst. It all looked quite magical on the night and I was delighted to have been a part of it.

They both love skiing and so Deborah came up with the idea of an après-ski themed party to celebrate Gary’s 50th. Kingdom in Penshurst is just like a tree-house amongst the woods and was the perfect venue for it.

The party ideas were brought to life by the very talented Estelle and Aphrodite of Dilly + Diti. They styled the venue so beautifully and on a chilly February evening, it really did feel like being in the Swiss Alps!

There was an Alpine inspired dinner, including a wonderful fondue, cake by the amazing Claudia of Purple Flour and the evening was finished off with music downstairs and lots of dancing to the incredible Abalicious, an Abba tribute band.

The party was a surprise for Gary so we all had to keep it hush hush in the run up to the big day. Deborah invited friends from far and wide and I think Gary was absolutely blown away by it all. Happy Birthday again Gary and thank you Debs for inviting me along to capture it all.

I have really missed the weddings, parties and events this year. Here’s hoping we can celebrate again with friends in the not too distant future.
