July School Holidays

Thursday, July 21, 2016 4:43pm

We've had so much fun these school holidays! Thankyou to everyone who has come along and joined in the multitude of festivities.

Monday & Tuesday we had Bumbles the Clown from Abracadabra Entertainment visit us all the way from Adelaide to host our two very special workshops. "Balloon Twisting" was on Monday where and the children learnt to make everything from swords and flowers to animals and more! Tuesday we filled a room of budding magicians with our "Magic Workshop" where Bumbles taught them all the tricks of the trade and some special illusions to take home and test on their parents!

Monday night Bumbles was back with a 1 hour Magic Show for kids (& grownups!) in our Lincoln Ballroom overlooking the bay. Bumbles wowed the audience performing magic and illusions before their eyes and post show, treating each and every child to their very own balloon animal! 

Thursday was the largest of our activities where we transformed our Lincoln Ballroom into a disco - complete with party lights and music! This 2 hour dance party was hosted by local dance teacher Julie Hennell who kept the kids entertained (and their bodies moving!) with games like Musical Statues and The Limbo. Not forgetting the parents, we set up a chill out zone where parents could watch on and enjoy a cup of coffee and a cake by our Relay for Life Team - who were there selling homemade sweets & treats and face painting to raise money for cancer. 

We had so much fun we've invited Abracadabra Entertainment back again in December for a special Santa's Magic Show. Click here for more information.

An Evening with Liza Emanuele - A Wedding Showcase

Wednesday, July 20, 2016 10:21am

A huge big thankyou to the amazing guests who joined us last Friday for a wonderful evening of canapés, cocktails and wedding inspiration at our first ever Wedding Showcase – An Evening with Liza Emanuele. Brides to be, fiancés, girlfriends, mothers & grandmothers all joined us, fashion designer Liza Emanuele and our favourite local wedding suppliers for an exclusive evening of canapés, cocktails and high end wedding inspiration. 

With the help of local décor companies and our favourite florist, we transformed our Lincoln Ballroom into a place of wonder and inspiration – complete with a tulip covered ceiling! Guests sampled a brand new canapé menu from our Executive Chef Dave Pedro including an Antipasto Grazing Buffet and Macaroon Dessert wall, while cocktails were served specially from our brand new ‘Spirit Station’.

Armed with their very own gift bag; guests spent the evening exploring the space and filling up their bags with goodies from each supplier along the way. 

We were honoured to have Liza Emanuele, one of Adelaide's leading fashion designers with us on the evening who treated us all to the first viewing of her brand new collection. The fashion show consisted of stunning bridal gowns aswell as on-trend bridesmaid & wedding guest outfits from local fashion house, Coco California.

Both Seishin Spa and Leading Edge Jewellers ensured our models looked the part, doing their makeup and draping them in jewels ready for the catwalk. Dessert was served by Sugar Daisy Cakes, allowing guests to sample an array of flavours while Amy Rowsell Photography was there capturing it all.

A special thankyou to these wedding suppliers who we could not have done this without.
