{Locally Found} White Party got it right

A couple of weeks ago I was invited to the Mayfield Garden White Party.

I went last year and had a fabulous time (even though I was pregnant and had tonsillitis!) so this year I had high hopes!

I recruited a crew and off we went.

Mayfield Garden is located about 40 minutes from Bathurst and about  10 minutes from Oberon, and because they want you to be able to have a good time and not worry about the car they even arrange a bus to take you from Bathurst for these types of events (cheers, thanks much!)

So we loaded up on a bus with a VERY friendly bus driver and headed off.

Once we arrived at Mayfield Garden we were led down this wonderfully, secretive path and arrived at the chapel. The chapel doors were closed but the views were breathtaking. Mayfield White Party 18 (14 of 105)

After a couple of short moments engulfed by the view, the doors to the chapel were released and we were immediately transported to a secret world. The chapel was filled with smoke and mystery. Waiters holding wines and not wearing many clothes were an eye-opening experience. It was like we had been transported to a medieval Adam & Eve exclusive party. Mayfield White Party 18 (26 of 105)

Set in the middle of the chapel was the most generously glorious food spread I have ever seen, in the event that I am ever offered a last meal I choose this. There were figs and cheese, tarts and prosciutto. Olives and breads. It was honestly some of the most spectacular food I have ever eaten. You could immediately tell how much time and care had been given by the chefs of Mayfield to create not only a spread, but really an edible piece of art. Mayfield White Party 18 (10 of 105)

After a few drinks, some scrumptious food and a multitude of selfies overlooking the magnificent views we were directed back to the bus. We were then transported back down the hill and into the nursery gallery.

The nursery gallery is this beautifully, organic feeling barn that is set just behind the wood fire garden. The moment you walk through the wood fire garden with its lights and fire you feel like you have immediately stepped into some exclusive event surrounded by your friends. Mayfield White Party 18 (82 of 105)

The best way I could describe my night was the feeling that I was at someone’s wedding where there were no strangers only friends I had yet to meet.

The food was phenomenal, the staff friendly and the location unsurpassed.  Mayfield White Party 18 (90 of 105)

I can’t recommend enough that you should collect your friends and attend the next event at Mayfield Garden.
