Bite Club House was the perfect setting for this Tuesday night soiree. You know those perfect balmy Sydney afternoons, walking slowly down streets lined with Victorian terraces with the sun filtering through the leafy trees. Woollahra must be one of the prettiest postcodes in Sydney. So I had seen pictures of the Bite Club House many times but walking in and taking in all of the details was pretty marvelous! Each guest who walked in said the same this ‘WOW look at this place’. Even the bathroom was amazing. I felt like I was in a Tuscan mansion, with rustic peeling walls with layers and layers of colourful paint and rooms filled with antiques, lamps and artwork. This beautiful privately owned Victorian mansion has been lovingly restored and full of eclectic pieces that would make any stylist or weak at the knees.
Sophie Thé stylist was our lovely host for the evening. Sophie is originally from Lyon in France and has spent the best part of a decade traveling the world on a yacht. Now based in Sydney, Sophie has worked with some of the best in the business, spending three years with Megan Morton at The School and The Propery and now freelance styling for some of Australia’s best magazines and brands. Sophie gave us plenty of home and table styling tips as we wandered through each room taking in the details, and learning a few tricks of the trade while sampling some of the new Magnum at Home wines. I had a lot of fun styling my own table setting and then sitting and enjoying a delicious and colourful dinner with fellow bloggers and Sydney media.
Magnum at Home is a new range of premium wines in a handy soft pack, showcasing some of the best winemakers from Australia and New Zealand, including Brookland Valley, Hardy’s and Waipara. Each soft pack contains equivalent of two bottles of wine and the perfect little pack to take on a picnic, to a party, when you are camping or when you just want one glass at home and don’t want to open a whole bottle. “Great wine, a glass at a time” We sampled the wines over dinner and they were really very lovely.
It was a lovely evening indeed catching up with some familiar faces from the Sydney blogging community and meeting some new ones. Thank you so much Sophie The for hosting this beautiful evening and to Frankie and the team at Liquid Ideas. All of these gorgeous photos are by DLPhotography.
