Let's do the happy hen dance!

When it comes to hen's days, I'm in my element. Especially when you combine some pretty cool theming, a stunning venue and ah-mazing food.

Which is exactly what we were treated to when we celbrated Michelle's hen's day a couple of weeks ago at Hentley Farm in the Barossa. OMG. What a beautiful setting. My photos simply don't do it justice, but hopefully you get the drift.

We stuck with black, white and yellow for our colours, with stripes, polka dots and florals featuring heavily in our decorating. The fun started on the bus ride up and then guests were treated to pre-lunch drinks and nibbles on the verandah of the recently renovated farm house at Hentley, before finding their seats at the long table under umbrellas.

Lunch was divine - Phoebe sure spoilt us, and the game of bocce after we indulged was good to get us out of our chairs to work off some of the decadence of lunch! The 'survival kits' were a God-send - equipping our guests with water, jelly beans and Hydrodol - anti hangover tablets. Talk about investing in the next day! We had all bases covered.

It was a gorgeous day all round and thank you to Beth and Kelly for all the trouble they went to to help pull it off.
