Last Saturday (the 23rd of May) Sophie from Crown and Glory organised an amazing party for the Glitterati subscribers and it was amazing! I travelled all the way up to London for it and it was so worth the journey.
About half of the group were planning on meeting in Kensington Gardens for a wee picnic before hand but me and Saskia were running late and were kinda lost. However all was okay when I spotted a group of colourful, glittery, flower-adorned women waving at me from across the street. I had found my people! When I was safely with them Saskia went home and we went for a little Cafe Nero break before heading off to the party… half an hour early, oops! Sophie wasn’t expecting us early and it cause a bit of a queue on the stairs to the basement, where the Crown and Glory Candy Bar was, but we were all happy to finally be there!
The first thing we were treated to was our amazing goodie bags full of treats from the likes of Oh Squirrel, Sugar and Vice and I love Crafty. It was so funny watching everyone try to figure out what the mini macarons were- are they edible. rubbers, lipbalms? (turns out they are little pots) All of the gifts were so thoughtful but the icing on the cake for me has to be the cards everyone got. Each one was different and filled with a personal heartfelt message, my Veronica Dearly card made me smile so much. Our ticket price included creating a custom flower crown, headband, clip or facinator from the Crown and Glory Candy Shop. I chose pink, turquoise and purple flowers and some sparkly crystals to create a glorious headband. We will be getting them in next months box so I will be sure to share it with you!
The party continued upstairs in the beautiful Anges de Sucre with many a glass of prosecco and some of their adorable and delicious mini macarons, cupcakes, bownies and marshmallows. I was on such a sugar high all night! I spoke to so many amazing women and got totally wrapped up in the whole magical experience and forgot to take many photos however a few other people did take some and are okay with me sharing them so here’s a little photographic snippet of the night.
So cute and so freaking yummy! You can order these treats online and trust me when I say- soon they will be mine once again *slightly evil, sugar induced laugh*.
The décor inside and our is so pretty and perfect for a flowery party. I need their wallpaper in my future home.
I have no idea what I was taking about but everyone seems to be interested! I was so nervous about meeting so many new people all at once but they were all so nice and welcoming that it felt like chatting away to old friends almost instantly. There wasn’t one awkward silence all night and I felt completely at home.
I’ve been calling this my “cool blogger photo” because it just looks so professional and networky. I realise now that makes no sense but I know what I mean. I felt very in my element, all my anxiety vanished for the evening and I am so proud of myself. Luckily I remembered to take a selfie with the wonderful owner of Crown and Glory- Sophie. She was so nice and we had a great chat about Cornwall and small businesses and going charity shopping in Falmouth because that’s where all the good things are! I tried to hold in my inner fangirl but then remembered the project I did at uni last year that centred around Crown and Glory- I hope I didn’t come across as too much of a weirdo! I once again attempted to control my inner fangirl when I got the chance to snap a selfie with Kat from Rock ‘n’ Roll Bride. She was amazing and so easy to talk to. I told her how happy her recent post about body positivity and not feeling pressured to loose weight for your wedding made me. On another note don’t our hair colours go so well together?! Kat was such a babe and I’m so glad I plucked up the courage to talk to her.
I had such a fabulous night with some freaking amazing people! The Glitterati party in London will always hold a place in my heart as will everyone I met there. I don’t have to wait too long to see some of these babes again though because I am going to the Glitterati party in Birmingham on June 20th! So excited and this time I will try to take more photos! Thank you to the staff at Anges de Sucre for providing sweet treats, Sophie and Gareth for putting on an amazing event and constantly creating beautiful head candy and the Glitterati girls for just being their wonderful selves! Keep your eyes peeled for more about my trip to London! Toodles!
