My birthday parties!

in Occasion,Sip & Bite
I am so fortunate to have so many friends in London, that when I decided to have my birthday party there, I had many people that I could share this occasion with! In order to make the most of this experience I celebrated my birthday over 2 days.

The first was on my actual birthday, I did an intimate dinner with the closest of my friends in Mayfair at a gorgeous Italian restaurant called Banca. We were so spoilt by the charming and flamboyantly Italian waiters, free cocktails and champagne on the house!

They were also so sweet to organise a full dessert platter for me and my friends and sang me happy birthday and everything! It was like having your birthday at a fancy, grown up version of the Spur ha ha – best night!  Some pics below of the evening:

The next evening I had birthday drinks at 86 Restaurant & Bar, a stunning venue in Fulham Road. All my friends in London came to have a drink with me, funny thing none of my guests were actually British, they were South African Polish, Greek, American etc – a very global mix!

Very special also was that my brother was in attendance – I think the last time we celebrated a birthday together must have been when we were still very little!

Thank you everyone that made effort to come and spend some time with me – I really appreciate it and had a blast with all of you!
