Bacanal - La Plage Brunch Party.


You may remember a few weeks ago I told you all about an exciting new brunch party, La Plage, brought to you by Bacanal. Well on Saturday myself, Jasiminne, and my brothers from another mother, Edd and Henry, all ventured down to the Millenium Gloucester Road hotel to experience the event for ourselves. It was sadly raining outside, so I went safe and just wore black skinny jeans, a silky summer top, nude suede wedges, and a cardi (it's way too cold at the moment!). Jasiminne being Jasiminne went all out and wore tropical print pants, a white crop top, and heels. The boys went 'smart casual'...aka, normal.

We arrived at the indoor sun room and were ushered over to a white table (everything was white), while the champagne was brought over to us. The new Moet & Chandon Ice Imperial champagne is the very first champagne produced that is designed to be enjoyed over ice. I'm incredibly fussy with champagne, I usually only like savoury flavoured more 'mature' Brut's, but this was one of the best I've ever tasted. Fresh and fruity, with a light summery taste. 

Everyone was sitting around drinking, but no one was eating the delicious brunch on offer! So Jasiminne and I ran up and started everyone off, and soon after everyone else followed suit. It was a very healthy brunch, with lots of fresh fruit, a few small cakes, fresh eggs cooked in front of us, and bacon and sausages. I wasn't too hungry so just had some small bits of fresh fruit, cheese, and a small cake, and then went back up for a fried egg after (I can't resist eggs).  

After the food came the alcohol. More alcohol. We had waiters who poured the champagne for us and made sure to serve it correctly; over ice, with garnishes including mint leaves and strawberries. As well as champagne there was wine and vodka, but we mainly stuck to the champers - it was never ending! Along with alcohol, came the dancing and entertainment. The DJ was awesome, and there was a drag queen and burlesque dancer. I think it's best if I explain the rest of the party in photos...







^That's Henry doing an impression of me. Apparently that's what I look like when I smile for photos. I think not.

^Not realising what Henry's doing...and then below suddenly realizing and my face turning to one of disgust... Hannah control your man!



As well as the drag queen there was also a woman doing face painting, so naturally Edd and Henry got the most unimaginative face paints possible...





Skulls, and the Bacanal logo. Classy boys, classy. Jasiminne went for something slightly more interesting, a pineapple. At least it had glitter on it.

I wanted to take the Moet & Chandon life-ring home with me!

Things got a bit crazy around 4pm, and some weird things started happening. Edd started sniffing Henry's trousers for one, "I'm just seeing if he's washed them...they smell quite nice!"


And then in the middle of taking a 'nice' photo, he decided to tickle Henry so this happened...


After that we danced around a bit, watched the burlesque dancer (while I dreamed of having her body...then went off on a tangent and started dreaming about chocolate cake...and then figured out what I don't and never will have, that body)

Jasiminne then decided to leave us to go shopping, and I then did what I have to do at every party, and went up to see if the DJ would let me have a go at being a DJ. He would only let me stand next to him, sad times. We had some laughs when I tried to hijack the machinery though and he got into a panic.




As the room got smokier the photos got blurrier, until it was time for me to head to Arabella's birthday dinner and leave the boys to party the night away. A huge thank you to Bacanal for having us, we had an awesome time! Let's hope they invite us to another one soon ;) I'm not sure I can go back to night time parties having experienced a full-on brunch party now.
