One of Australia’s most social sporting traditions is the race that stops a nation, the Melbourne Cup. A day for fashion & fun over a glass of bubbles, or three!
As the ambassador for YELLOWGLEN, I was lucky enough to host the Yellowglen Pop-Up Cup this year in Sydney. The first time Australia’s most popular sparkling brand has brought the house to Sydney – and in such style was it launched!
With Paddington’s iconic market space, turned into a lane way festive marquee, guests sipped on Yellowglen bubbles (Peacock Lane by Samantha Wills was my favorite, obviously!), beneath glass roofs suspended with decadently lush vines & fresh blooms, and nibbled on beautifully gourmet food prepared at the pizza & tuk tuk food stand! (oh and the hand made white chocolate & passion fruit gelato?! Stop it). It was a mix of Hamptons Chic & garden gorgeousness, with an incredible turn out of impeccably dressed ladies & a few dapper gents!
It was such a fun day, I cannot wait to do it all again next year!
Off & Racing! – SWx
