The homely atmosphere was so inviting and personal because we all felt at ease without the pressure to act civilised if we were to have been at a restaurant. We're an unruly bunch of girls and our conversations reach shouting levels some how which always gets us laughing in the end. I guess it ties in with #moneysavymarch beacuse it shows that we didn't need to spend money on a huge venue and caterer for the reunion, being together and seeing each other after 2 years was celebration enough. The food was scrummy of course. Homemade cupcakes made by my friend as well as an indulgent chocolate fudge cake for seconds, you can tell I got home ten pounds heavier just by sniffing the cocoa.
I loved the Persian rug on the floor it was so beautiful and I thought it went well with the vibrant scarf I paired with my outfit (see exhibit A for a glimse of my scarf). The interior designer in me yearned to steal it for a future home of mine.
The activities were pretty much alive with conversations of who will get married first and who will be the first to have a baby. At that point I unashamedly voted myself as the first for both of them, but just for the laughs we imagined the least likely friend as the victim- I think it's always funnier that way. We also revived old memories from our year as 13 year olds, times when I was in a band and sang like a scratchy blackboard!
All in all the reunion was amazing and it's times like this where I know I have made friends for a lifetime. Hope its inspired you to organise something low-key like this because if it turns out as fun as mine did then you'll be in with a fun-filled day no matter who turns up.
