Let's talk about Ladies Day!
This year the Gulargambone Rugby Union Ladies Day was held on the 21st of July at the McGrane Oval in Gilgandra. Despite the previous day being actually freezing and blowing a gale the weather gods turned it on and I'm pretty sure no one froze to death.
Now, I know the tent says Holden, but the tent was loaned from club sponsor Gilgandra Toyota. Thank goodness we snagged it because the sun was shining and there was a grazing table under there that would not have fared well in the sun.
Oh grazing tables, how I love thee! But I had never put one together before so I enlisted the help of 3 much more experienced gal pals (thanks Amanda, Sal and Kate).
When there is food one must have a drink. We were treated to PIMMS and champagne courtesy of Central Stores. We decided to do a "pimp your pimms" sort of situation with a fruit station on one side of the bar for the ladies to fill their cups with, the PIMMS punch on the other side (poured by responsible people who hold a current RSA of course) and lemonade on the ladies side just in case someone wanted to water it down. Actually speaking of bar, thanks Kaela, Nadine and Tim for keeping us well watered.
Bar, champagne bucket and water cooler all available to hire from The Rural Bride
Thanks to the Armatree Hotel we could all park ourselves on a seat at a table or wine barrel to enjoy the game. At half time a few lucky ladies received some lucky door prizes. The first lucky door prize was donated by Gilgandra Pharmacy and was a lovely hamper of lady luxuries, then there were two Ringers Western gift vouchers donated by OneBucket.
What a great day we all had! I can't wait to see you all at this years event.
P.S. I have other photos supplied by the Gilgandra Newspaper but they wont load for some reason.
In April this year I was lucky enough to collaborate with some amazing local businesses for the Bubbles & Brunch event. I'm sure you can remember my billion insta stories from the day. If you can't, here it is ...
The morning was held in the back garden of local boutique and beauty store- The Beauty Room Warren. The Rural Bride assisted in creating a light atmosphere by introducing floor pallet tables adorned with soft touches and florals from The Meadow. We also took one of our timber bars along to sit the food and drinks on.
It was the perfect venue because it allowed us to browse through the store and make a few cheeky purchases in between sipping champagne and catching up with friends.
The Beauty Room, run by Laura Noonan, were showcasing their new range of fun clothing and accessories in a runway fashion show.
Local milliner Lou Webb paired 4 of her amazing hats with 4 different looks from the runway.
Guests were treated to an assortment of delicious food by Sal from Deer Dingo Catering. Sal's creations curbed literally every pregnancy craving I've ever had and left a sweet taste in all our mouths.
What a successful event. Thanks for inviting us to be part of it.
