Our First Party at El Cortijo de los Caballos

Well we thought we deserved to be the first to use the Cortijo for a party so we decided upon our daughters 1st Birthday/Christening party.  The weather was fabulous so we instructed our guests to bring swimwear as we knew we would not be able to keep them out of the pool.  The very retro pool table and chairs went down a treat with our guests enjoying endless jugs of Sangria and Pimms whilst keeping cool in the pool.  Scarlett Rose had a fantastic time and absolutely loved being centre of attention for the day (not that this varies from any other day) so we couldn´t have been happier.  I think we will be repeating the day for my husbands birthday in September and i am already starting to plan my 40th bash there.

I have to say a big thank you to Nikki from Posh Parties for the BBQ which just kept coming and coming and a massive thank you to Little Lolas Cupcakes for the gorgeous Scarlett Rose inspired Cupcakes.  I arranged them in an informal fashion in the cake chiringuito and I have to say they were my favorite part of the day, truly scrumptios and the giant cupcake with mini cupcake on top was divine :)

We had around 50 guests and it was a great success with two of our guests booking the Cortijo for next year to renew their wedding vows!

We have just had our first guests arrive at the cortijo and are booked now until mid October so very busy and next year is looking even busier with us booking 3 weddings in the past week.  So now that the renovation is completed it is time to knuckle down with my Wedding Planner head on and get all these weddings for next year sorted :)
