Lunch Beach Vintage Style...














I consider myself so very lucky to have been invited to Simone's Flood Relief Lunch  lunch she was hosting yesterday. Simone is of course from Beach Vintage and you can read more here

I walked into her home and I fell completely in love (as if I wasn't already) with her  Beach Vintage decorating style. Vintage and florals, candles, lamps and roses - you could have knocked me down with a feather- really!!... And such a nice touch to have the lamps on and candles lit in daylight. The ambiance was amazing.

Of course I was too busy chatting and stalking Simone's house to take photos of the lovely ladies that attended.  Fabulous company, fabulous surroundings, fabulous French champagne and fabulous food what more can I say? It was great to see my friend Katherine from The Old Boat House, and lovely to meet Linda from Lilly Cottage and to meet Tiffany from Mrs Tiff Living Creatively.

Simone's friends were as just as delightful as Simone herself. Thanks everyone I had a brilliant time. Let's get  more of these blog get-togethers happening...of course we would have to find a reason, would we?  :)

Have a wonderful Monday.

Pam

Oh my! Simmone's house is just stunning! Sounds like such a lovely lunch.

I think I'll head to her blog and see if she gives any tips on hosting perfect lunches.

Does Simone have a blog? Am I that bogged down in blogland that I assume everyone has a blog?

Oh my Pam! What a fabulous experience, you must have been so excited. I would have done exactly the same, snapping away to my hearts content. Simone has so many wonderful treasures in her home and such fantastic views! Am hoping I can visit her shop (at long last) this weekend while I'm in Brisbane.

Needless to say it looks like you all had a great time! :-)

Oh Pamela I am so happy for you, and slightly envious, to have been in those gorgeous surrounds for what looked like a dream lunch at Simones (saw/read her post). Good to hear you had a great time, with beautiful people.
