speaking of champagne... ( i mean sparkling wine)




I went to the 'Magic of Bubbles' Cap Classique and Champagne Festival in Franschhoek over the weekend of the 4-6 December.
It was magical, fantastical and fabulous! Decorated like a Top Billing/ SA celeb wedding, with disco balls of all sizes, everything black and white, and more orchids than one could count! (although, i did feel sorry for the orchids as it was soooo hot!!)
It does get unpleasantly sweaty beneath the tents, and consuming glass after glass of champers did nothing to make me feel cooler.
but it was fabulous! and the food - just amazing!
I have never eaten so many strawberries, prawns, salmon dishes, chocolate brownies, oysters (not in this order mind you...) in one sitting...
There was great live music, provided by the charming, sexy D-seven and the well known bad-boy heart throb Gerald Clarke – to mention a few...
