Happy Birthday Happenstance

The Happenstance Restaurant
Everyone loves a good birthday celebration and a first birthday is all the more special. This week I was lucky enough to join The Happenstance Restaurant and Bar to celebrate their First Birthday.  

The Happenstance sits right next to London's most iconic landmark St Paul's.

A birthday wouldn't be a birthday without lots of surprise and treats. The first of which was a wonderful cocktail "Houdini Tini".

Snow queen vodka, cloudy apple juice, vanilla and ginger infused syrup de gomme, grapefruit and lime juice. A perfect way to begin the celebrations.

Followed by wonderful summer canap├ęs.

 Yummy Butternut squash crumble.

The Happenstance had also pulled out all the stops with entertainment, Miss Ballooniverse and wonderful acrobatics.

A birthday party wouldn't be complete without cake and what a cake.

A wonderful evening. Thank you to The Happenstance for having me, wishing you many more successful years.

  5. I basically read your blog, got hungry, and had a poptart. Not the most exciting thing to eat, but I can at least pretend I am eating all the delicious food you are eating. I love the look of that cocktail. So pretty with that pansy in it.
