When you receive an invitation to a house-warming most of us imagine popping over
late afternoon/early evening with an M&S card and flowers & some bubbles in
tow. Depending on the time of year you could be huddled around an open fire
admiring the new cushions while the hosts are quickly explaining how the
skirting boards aren’t finished yet nor are the kids bedrooms nor the
bathroom but they are doing a bit at a time. Or maybe everyone is in the
most popular room in the house ‘The kitchen’ or perhaps it’s summer & in a
moderately sized garden, neighbours admire the new barbie and the trendy
colour of the painted fence that comes with a trendy name such ‘Elephants
breath’ or something in that vein. And then it all wraps up around 9 ish
So when the IT phone rang inviting the IT Girls to perform at a house
warming nothing could have prepared us for what we were about to experience.
The event come round very quickly. The day before I had just
landed from a super summer holiday in Crete and to my delight the UK
September sun was still shining. I hopped into my car (the wrong side of
8am) for the 3.5 hour car journey ahead of me. Can I just take a moment here
to thank my faithful friend Ms Sat Nav . She is intelligent, calm and
knowledgable, its thanks to her that I heard the reassuring words ‘You have
arrived at your destination’
As I drove through the large open gates I felt I was entering ‘Not
just any’ house warming ……. I slowed the car right down to take in what
I was seeing. Whoooooo i said to my self in a whisper.
I made my way up a huge sweeping drive way, perfectly mown grass lay before
me with contrasting light and dark stripes.
Well, I thought to myself if the lawn is a work of art what did this enormous
house look like from the inside! I was about to find out!
As I proceeded carefully up the driveway, making sure not to accidentally run
one of my tyres over this magnificent lawn,I couldn’t help noticing the
choppers parked up! Yep just a couple of casual helicopters on your front
I could feel the butterflies in my tummy telling me this was going to be an
The wonderful host of the party is a private man so
unfortunately I can’t disclose the finer details of his insanely impressive
house or the party but let’s just say if 007 designed houses this would be one
I honestly felt as if I was in a movie from the moment the party started. The
organisation of this event was impeccable and one of the best that I have ever
seen. As a result the event ran so smoothly that every party dream came true.
Thank you to the amazing Jo Jo Desmond for making this event possible for
The IT Girls and for performing amazing live vocals at the party..
Thanks also to Maria, Kayleigh ( who is also our wonderful artist manger)
Stacey & Jen who made up the dream ‘IT Girl dancer’ team!
I woke up the next day in my hotel and I had to take a minute to gather my
Was it all a dream? Nope just 8 hours earlier I was most definitely ‘living’
We have a feeling this house was built for regular parties so we can’t wait
to grace this fabulous home again with our luxury entertainment shows!
So the next time I get invited to a house-warming I fear it might not live
up to this one!
Sometimes you just need to read something that has ‘sparkle’ written all over IT. Together with Fran & Kayleigh it’s my job to deliver twinkly tales of parties, events & amazing adventures to you all!
