Last weekend I went to my first bloggers event in London, set in an enchanted Pandora’s garden in Regents Park. The location was so perfect, I have a kind of obsession with Regents Park; there is such an air of sadness
and beauty about the rose gardens, so was insanely happy when I saw it was set literally only yards away.
It was such a rainy afternoon – with sunny spells between – but it didn’t spoil the party for one moment. We sheltered in tents boasting brow bars, manicure stations, henna art and hair braiding. I wish I could experience it all again! I went with my sister as my plus one and the staff were brilliant at making us feel at ease.
I wore my horse dress and went for an all blush ensemble, complete with white and silver pieces and floral charms. I definitely regretted not bringing an unbrella haha! I was so grateful that plastic ponchos were freely available and there were so many activities to partake in both inside and outside, we were spoilt for choice.
More little details from my outfit. Here I am wearing the white leather bracelet and charms you can find here and here. The ring is the October droplet birthstone here, even though I’m an August girl, I adore the colour and it’s so dainty and delicate. Luckily my sister is an October baby and it fits her perfectly.
A backdrop of live music playing, there were freshly cooked hot dogs and a salad bar serving veggie options for lunch. How good do these potatoes look? I even managed to spot @josieldn at the salad bar
fangirl moment and it was so surreal spotting and trying not to stare at @freddy haha, even more beautiful in person.
Benefit were there on hand to provide complimentary brow service. The pink van was so darling! The event was all pastel themed so it fitted in perfectly. The decor was adorable with little striped deck chairs and hay bales to sit on and there were so many cute fun fair games dotted about, even a coconut shy!
One of the most beautiful corners to photograph was the freakshake stand, filled with petals and little dishes of ice, oreo cookies, fresh strawberries, flakes and reeses chocolate pieces as milkshake toppings.
Everything was carefully placed and thought out so that we might use every prop to accentuate the rings on our strawberry stained fingers. We were given pretty ombre Pandora bands to wear at the entrance and, on
fangirling entering the garden, were immediately struck by the huge hot air balloon basket centrepiece, complete with hundreds of colourful balloons, the perfect place to look out over the event.
Look at those strawberries! The shakes themselves were of all kinds of flavours and came in these sweet little jars with handle attached, adorned with cream, strawberries and sugared cake pops.
I probably spent about half an hour taking photos of this stall alone, I almost forgot to snap the jewellery haha. Food is one of my favourite subjects to photograph as I love the way you can tease its textures and make it look so tempting mmm. You can count on my posts to be food (and pink) picture heavy!
I wanted to say a huge thank you to the team at Pandora for hosting such a wonderful party and gorgeous decor. Today is my mum’s birthday, a shoutout to her if she is reading! When’s your birthday month? ♡
