On Saturday evening we celebrated my Husband’s 30th birthday at The Wellesley Hotel in Knightsbridge. I told him that we were going out to dinner just the two of us, but in reality, I had arranged his parents and brother to fly over from the States and invited his closest friends and their wives to join us for a dinner party at the new boutique townhouse.
Our friends and family gathered in the Crystal Bar and as soon as my Husband saw everyone he was shell-shocked. I HAD DONE IT. SURPRISE!
The hotel arranged a beautiful set menu for us designed by Head Chef Stefano Stecca, but we also had a selection to choose from so there was a delicious starter and a main for each guest.
The meal was delicious and there was live jazz played throughout the dinner. The singer even performed “Happy Birthday” and the entire restaurant joined in.
After our meal, the boys wanted to enjoy the vast selection of cigars that The Wellesley has to offer so we headed back the Crystal Bar and the boys took their place on one of the heated smoking terraces. Apparently the humidor at the hotel has the most exclusive and expansive selection of cigars outside of Cuba!
After the party, I had one final surprise for the Husband, I had booked a room in the gorgeous hotel so that all we had to do was stumble upstairs. We checked into our gorgeous room and fell fast asleep.
We woke up in the morning to the beautiful views of the sun shining over Hyde Park…
And ordered a delicious breakfast in bed…
It was an amazing celebration, and an lovely stay. Thank you to everyone at The Wellesley for helping me throw a wonderful dinner party!
