Waaaay back in 2014, Rebecca from 'weddings at the Stradbroke Hotel' fame, asked me to style her birthday party, planned for 2017. Bec and I work together on a pretty regular basis at the Straddie Hotel and it's fair to say that we are fans of each other's work.
February 2017 seemed like a long way away back then and now it's come and gone. But oh, what a night!
After a few incarnations, Rebecca (or Bec as she's affectionately known to all who know her) decided on her venue - fabulous Providence Farm Hall at Beechmont. And the theme? A Midsummer's Night Feast. We planned for a long banquet table outside in the field with the Hall interior as our 'Plan B' (always have a 'Plan B' and your event will be super chilled!).
On the night, Plan B was far from our minds with the weather gods delivering just what we'd ordered.. mild and fine with vivid splashes of stars and the Milky Way in full view across the evening sky.
Bec's only request was "lots of fairy lights" so we set out a banquet table beneath an arbour of fairy lights, foliage and candles with a view through beautiful Numinbah Valley and across to the Springbrook Plateau. A comfy lounge with a basket of cozy rugs invited guests to linger under the stars with a backdrop of twinkling lights. All the very best Lamington Plateau has to offer!
