What a swell party it was!

To Winfield House for the annual July 4th party  (O.K. it was July 2nd but who cares?) and what a fun party it was to celebrate the 239th Anniversary of Independence of the U.S.A.

Not surprising, security was tight but polite

Although security was tight it was incredibly well organised and no delays in getting in and out of Winfield House. Everyone was polite and efficient.

SNIPERS ON THE  ROOF  ADDED  A SURREAL HOLLYWOOD DISASTER MOVIE TOUCH, BUT VERY REASSURING.   DOUBT MANY REVELLERS WOULD EVEN HAVE NOTICED.

Smart military were photo opportunities in their gorgeous braided jackets and caps.

Lots of nostalgic touches, including a fleet of stunning Chevvy’s, Mustangs and T.Birds in mint condition. It was an all American party – hot dogs, burgers, pop corn and the yummiest fried plantain chips. Beer and American ‘champagne’ flowed liberally.

Ambassador Barzun and Brooke love to share their passion for music with guests (Annie Lennox at Women’s Day celebration) and Duran Duran were the surprise ‘star turn’ this time.

    The great all American theme was brilliantly done and the super relaxed guests looked like they were having lots of fun – the summer party of the year. Wish I’d been invited!
