Well, we had ALL the fun hosting Smythson of Bond Street’s Daddy Cool party to celebrate their collection for Fathers’ Day – THIS weekend, in case you had forgotten! For me it was an extra thrill, as I was co-hosting with my father, not something I get to do on a regular basis
Daddy Cool – apart from being my father – is the name of Smythson’s special Fathers’ Day collection, available on-line here, and in store. There are fantastic cards, as well as gorgeous leather goods, with special embossing.
(And there’s another great excuse for heading to the stores themselves – the summer sale starts today with up to 50% off selected lines.)
Lots of lovely guests turned up:
And the cheese straws were made using the recipe from my cookbook, Friends, Food & Family.
And not just humans were in attendance. This is fashion stylist Kate Rose Morris’ beautiful Stanley.
There was complimentary embossing on the night from one of Smythson’s master craftsmen.
We asked guests and friends online to Instagram and Tweet photos of their fathers using the hashtag DaddyCool and we printed them out in-store. SO many incredible photos!
