Melbourne Cup LFB - Swallow Bar - Style
Last week the nation stopped to watch a race, the prestigious Melbourne Cup.
In our case Team LFB and 51 fellow LFB'ers listened to it at the awarded Swallow Bar (a few doors down in Maylands).
Awarded; yes, in the past 4 weeks the Swallow Bar have won Small Bar of the Year 2014 as acknowledged by the industry body and then the Australian Hotel Awards Best Bar Menu (well, we can vouch for that!)
Big congratulations to owners Meredith and Zoe!
Back to our day, it started early with make up and vintage hair sessions in store and as it got closer to 11am Whatley Crescent was filled with women in vintage inspired outfits, hats, fascinators, heels and smiles a plenty. The media even stopped by to see what all the fuss was about.
Everyone was out for a great day with like minded company.
With the DJ playing, the tap dancers welcoming guests to their tables and gift bags to open, the energy was high.
The food was amazing (as always) and with best dressed prizes, sweep stakes and some impromptu shoe shuffling from mwhah (CJ), the afternoon flew by.
Amongst all the fun we did manage to raise $620 for our friends at the Indigenous Literacy Foundation and Zoe said we will do it all again next year. Pop it in your diary now.
Much love to our friends at Swallow Bar for partnering with us, Team LFB (including Paul - Hubby to CJ) and to those that joined us on the day.
With a smile
