Today's Champagne Friday post is a little late this week, but oh well, you know what they say, better late than never! Today I was joined for Champagne Friday by the lovely Emma of Fleurage. We were very excited to get together and brainstorm ideas for our Spring Fashion event, which is fast approaching. Of course all the details will be revealed in good time...but I will say that it will be something fabulously glamorous and of course in keeping with the vintage style that both our brands are inspired by.
I am delighted to have just ordered some gorgeous hats from Melbourne Milliner, Ann Shoebridge, which of course will be showcased at the event. This will be the first Spring Racing season for Fanantique and I am planning on making it something special.
Here's a sneak peek at some of Ann's work..........
Ann is also creating some special pieces just for Fanantique, they will be stunning!!
Anyway, during our day of event planning, Emma and I were lucky to have several visitors pop in and join us for a Champagne. Amongst the visitors we had the delightful Jean, who kept us entertained with her stories. She told us about a dear old friend of hers, now in her nineties, who keeps pictures of all her lovers framed on the wall. Whenever she heads off on vacation each year to Hawaii, she wraps up all her lovers and takes them with her! When asked if she sat on the Captain's table during a cruise, she replied, "Darling, I slept in his bed!"
In honor of this entertaining character, I thought this week's cocktail should be something Hawaiian and what better than a Pina Colada!
45ml light rum, ie Bacardi
3 TBS crushed pineapple
60 ml coconut milk
wedge of pineapple to garnish
Mix the ingredients in a blender . Serve in a highball glass with a straw and wedge of pineapple on the side.
