Kelvin Grove birthday party

Imagine having your birthday party in a wonderful crystal tree-house, listening to beautiful music and looking out into the surrounding oak leaves and branches of mighty trees swaying in the wind. This is how clever Clare and Andreas Nel celebrated their joint birthdays at Kelvin Grove no, not the august venue that we all know and love, redolent of leather armchairs, chintz curtains and the Sunday roast no, this was a new and wonderful setting, perched high in the trees next to the bowling green, walled in glass and with white floors and walls, modern and sparkling yet intimate. –

Clare and Andreas, both such friendly, lovely souls, were so excited to celebrate their birthdays, their wedding anniversary and an upcoming overseas trip. A truly festive atmosphere bubbled throughout the night. Glass globes on each table contained little goldfish, all fluttering their long tails most exquisite! This was yet another party where we bumped into many old friends, all of whom naturally requested their favorite tunes from us. Our own current favourite is I’m in the Mood for Love, a hypnotically beautiful old jazz song. We play it for all guests, if they do not like it, they will get Bartok!
