I have always dreamed of having a picnic in the Bali Rice Fields.  They always look so magical in the late afternoon. So that is what we did. While in Bali for the eat read love pop up dinner and retreat at Villa Sungai we set our sites on a little picnic in the paddies.We found this cute little rustic hut in one of the local Cepaka rice fields just a short walk from Villa Sungai. The wonderful staff helped us organise everything from pillows, food, wine, flowers and more. 

It was an amazing afternoon with special friends in the Bali Rice Fields and one picnic that I will never ever forget.

On location in Cepaka Bali Rice Fields with many thanks to Jaclyn Carlson, Luisa Brimble, Sophie Baker, Nadean Richards and Lisa Madigan. x x

Luxury Villa in Bali Hosts Pop Up Dinner

Nov 12, 2014

















Luxury Villa in Bali, Villa Sungai hosts the latest Eat Read Love Pop Up Dinner Series
After launching the Eat Read Love Pop Up Dinner series in 2013, I was ready to take this concept to the next level and create a completely new and exciting pop up dinner and blogger retreat experience. So of course Bali was the perfect choice! After months of planning it was an absolute treat to host my first ever international pop up dinner earlier this year with some fabulous bloggers and friends at my favourite place in Bali - at the luxury Villa in Bali - Villa Sungai in Cepaka.  Eat read love thrives on the wonderful creative partnerships that I have developed over the past five years, and it has been a joy collaborating with many of Australia's great bloggers, photographers and creatives. Such a joy in fact that I couldn't wait to give something back to these wonderful people and say thank you, inviting them on a wonderful blogger retreat at Villa Sungai. After a dreamy week of 'Bolli's and Burgers', Lychee Martinis and too many Kardashian Selfies the last night of our stay was dedicated to the eat read love pop up dinner - what a fabulous way to end a perfect week in paradise. (There may not have been many Lychees left in Bali after our visit) 

The eat read love pop up concept is my way of bringing together our little creative community for a meal and a chat, getting away from our computer screens and iPhones and connecting over a meal with friends and likeminded people. After the success of the pop up dinner series and the Kinfolk Dinners in Sydney (which I also host) the Eat Read Love Pop Up Dinner series will kick off again in early 2015 with a series of wonderful events including blogger lunches, pop up dinners, weekend events in both cities and regional areas, providing continued opportunities for passionate people to come together over a meal and chat with our ever growing and changing creative community. And lets just say a #ParisPopUp could be coming soon to the calendar! In the words of Sophie Baker 'Le Squeak, Le Squeal' indeed! I can't wait to share all the plans with you as they unfold.  


A huge thank you to these special people for help making this happen:-
If you are looking for a Luxury villa in bali, Villa Sungai is the perfect place for an intimate dinner with friends, and also one of the most perfect wedding and honeymoon villas you will find in Bali. I hope to share more from the Bali blogger retreat soon including all the pics from our very special Pop Up Picnic in the Rice Paddies. I was a guest of Villa Sungai.
