Last night's Kings & Queens themed party in honour of my very good friend Juliette was fabulous. The venue was crackalackin for starters - Le Gothique in Wandsworth, housed in the imposing Royal Victoria Patriotic Building. Having lived down the road from it for well over a decade, I've always been intrigued by this super spooky place but have never had the pleasure of exploring it - I didn't even know there was a bar and restaurant on site until Jules booked it for her party.
If I'd been firing on all cylinders I would have taken a zillion pics. Due to the spaced-out effect of my pain killers and limitations of my bloody bad back, I've only got a few to share. But I hope they still tell the story of a great night with excellent food, fabulous company and many brilliant costumes....
|All fancy dressed up and ready to go; a Drama Queen and Queen of the Damned|
|Don't you just love this man's creative spirit?|
|My husband - the King Prawn (pfffft)|
|What a strange couple we make - mind you, not sure that vampires are partial to shellfish|
|Our beautiful hostess was Anne Boleyn (as far as I know she left with her head intact)|
|Le Gothique is one atmospheric venue|
|I hope she doesn't tip her water over Don King...|
|The fangs did come out (for five minutes - the Party Superstore packaging lied about the effectiveness of the "putty")|
|Titania, Queen of the Fairies makes her entrance (those wings were lethal)|
|The food was scrummy - and how I wish I could have stayed longer to get stuck into the cheese board|
|All good cheese needs a delicious grape or two to go with|
|The cupcake tower was provided by the venue - I'm now even more tempted to book a party there!|
|The themed cupcakes provided were delicious|
|And I did succumb to falsies - I may never wear this much eye make-up again, much as I loved it|
Happy birthday Juliette and thanks for inviting us!
