Badminton Brunch Gatsby Style - Qualia

Oct 30, 2013

The day after the Vogue Living Champagne Dinner I had the absolute pleasure of attending my very first Champagne Badminton Brunch in true J. Gatsby style. Everyone came along dressed in crisp Badminton whites, where the Champagne celebrations continued at the qualia helipad. I felt like I had just stepped into a scene from the Gatsby movie. We sipped on Charles Heidsieck and the most delicate and delicious sandwiches, and all had a crack at playing Badminton. It was hilarious. Jimmy you were the BEST and looked so stylish in your stripes playing 'shuttlecock'. I haven't laughed this much in a while. Kara Roselund, one of my all time styling hero's (I have been admiring this beautiful ladies work from afar for many years!) did an amazing job converting the qualia helipad into a decadent and delightful setting for an afternoon of sport, sunshine and champas. Kara even managed to find the most gorgeous selection of vintage racquet's, shuttlecocks and trophies, all styled to perfection. 

Lets just say that sport has never been my strength (unless you count snorkeling), so to win my first ever trophy felt fabulous! It is now proudly displayed as the centrepiece on my office mantle. Katie & Denny won the most coveted of all trophies and very well deserved too. Just when I thought the weekend couldn't get any better, the celebrations continued long into the afternoon, and well into the evening, and of course the trophies joined us at Bommie's restaurant at the Hamilton Island Yacht Club. I know two things are for certain; World Champagne Day is my new favourite celebration, and I cannot wait to return to the magical qualia on Hamilton Island.  Thank you so much Sophie Baker!!!
