Cup Day

Yesterday was Melbourne Cup Day & we headed out to a friends house for a combined Cup Day,

and birthday celebration for Trish!

What a fun way to spend Cup Day!

The theme was 60's race wear & there were some fantastic outfits.

One of the best parts of the day is the Sweep.  The horses are cryptically linked to an album cover & there is a lot of time spent trying to make sense of which is which. This year however, I didn't think too hard and picked "You Must Remember This" which turned out to be So You Think! Funny.

I wish I'd taken some more photo's of the garden as it looked amazing. The wisteria creeping up the veranda posts was beautiful,

and the green, green garden had so many little hidy holes and secret spots. 

 There is even a maze! Not somewhere I would want to stumble into after a few champagnes...

 After Fashions on the Field was judged,

...and we ate some delicious food, had a drink or two & chatted with some lovely friends, it was time to go home. Thanks so much Chris & Trish & Dom for a fantastic day!

Life has been very social & busy lately so I'm planning to have a quieter week to catch up. What are you up to this week? Hope you have a fun one xo

What a brilliant day! Looks like a lot of thought was put into the theme & those outfits, gorgeous! And what a stunning garden, you'd spend hours out there as a child wouldn't you! The imagination would just run wild..

What a fabulous party Beck! I would have been taking photos of all the outfits all day. What a great theme. The garden looks amazing and your girls look cute too!

What a fun day. I love a good dress up, it makes for even more fun and frivolity!

Tht looks like so much fun, especially when people actually get dressed up in the spirit of the occasion, and leave their inhibitions at home! Perfect way to spend a Tuesday in my book!

Looks like you know some great people Bec - nice to know that they galloped away with the theme (please pardon the pun!)
Thank you for sharing the festive mood with us!
