Melbourne Cup 2018

When the Race That Stops the Nation Became the Event That Stopped Cronulla!

It’s is well documented how we here at Northies love a party, but nothing quite compares to the lavish luxxe of Melbourne Cup Day. We love it! The fashions, the food, the drinks and the atmosphere, we just can’t get enough.

And 20018 was no exception…

Finery and floral details were set in the wee hours…a fittingly decorated photo wall, swish settings and stunning pops of colour in the florals set the scene for a day on the higher-end of the elegance scale.

Our chefs worked tirelessly curating a fitting menu of fresh seafood and hearty mains…and a sweet little tiramisu to finish

The team was spruced up and in position and it wasn’t long before the bubbles were flowing ready to kick off a day to remember….

Before we knew it, our illustrious host Annie Mation was in the house looking mighty fly and ready to keep the vibe at a high until the race

What a Doll!

It wasn’t long before the day was in full swing. Our Fashions by the Beach competition saw one creative lady take out our Best Dressed Female…She had made her own fascinator and all! Our best-dressed male was stiff competiton, with this lucky dapper chap taking out the Furphy Hammper.

As they say, time flies when you’re having fun…and before we knew, it was time for the big race! Check out this shot captured in the moment…the epitome of ‘a picture is worth a thousand words‘.
