Gracias por una noche maravillosa

Last month we celebrated the life of Frida Kahlo sitting around the Table for 18 at Graze on Grey – the home of Diaz images in St Kilda, here in Melbourne.

Our new host, chef and owner, Prem Negi couldn’t do enough to spoil us with a gorgeous 3 course meal fiesta and our hostess Samantha Newton designed Mexican cocktails and a welcoming green room for our star performer guests – Lin van Hek and Joe Dolce.  Lin served up tequila, salt and lime.  What a way to start a show – it was sublime.


The show was the usual poetry, power, punch and humour and the guests came in all their finery, won prizes and bought artwork.  Most importantly, Maggie was able to stay till late. When I took her home, one of the lovely staff members at Sacred Heart had made her a candy striped nightie.


One day soon it will all seem like a dream…


Thank you to all our wonderful guests for a marvellous evening – Gracias por una noche maravillosa.


Thank you so much to Trudy Schuringa Photography for once again capturing our special night – more passion and frivolity below.
