Summer is drawing to a close, and last Thursday at Allotment Bar, Manchester, Cotton Traders invited a bunch of bloggers to say adieu to the ebbing season.
Today I’m sharing a few snaps from the evening and the awesome goody bag!
So, Donna from Polkadot Pink and I arrived after a pretty long trek around basically the entire NQ – apparently Allotment bar is easy to find, but I have good form for getting lost even with the best directions (Sorry Donna!).
Allotment bar is a beautiful place – really cosy with a great atmosphere (I’m sure you can guess the theme) – and we quickly got comfy amid the other bloggers, including Miss Pond, Rainbow Crush and India Benjamin. There was a really cool competition where you could win some shopping vouchers for posting your Summer Sundown Selfie.
I’m not sure who won, but behold ours!
Anyway, food was served and conversation was enjoyed – and before we knew it the lovely organisers had distributed everyone a little scrapbook – and a bundle of photos each of us had taken over summer! How flipping adorable is that?
The night closed down with a little quiz about things that happened in summer 2015 which was actually pretty hard!
We were all treated to a really sweet “winter warmer” gift bag on the way out too – which was just a beautiful touch to a great evening. It had tons of winter preparation goodies including a snuggly hot water bottle, some wooly socks and Whittard goodies which I simply cannot wait to scoff!
I must say, I had a great time at the Cotton Traders Summer Sundown party – their attention to detail was second to none, and they had gone to great lengths to make sure everyone felt welcomed.
Thanks so much ladies, I had a great time! Let’s do it again!
