Royal Ascot Party bags

Only 10 days to go until me and 6 girlfriends are off to Royal Ascot for Ladies Day - whoop, whoop!
I was the big 40 at the end of last year and decided that during my 40th year I wanted to try and fulfil some of my ambitions and dreams. My other half made one of my dreams come true by taking me to London (first class!) to see The Lion King at the Lyceum - it was absolutely amazing and I would highly recommend it!!

One of my other ambitions is to attend THE social event of the year that is Royal Ascot. I'm not really a dressy person but I remember watching Royal Ascot with my Dad (who loved horse racing) and seeing the 'posh' ladies all glammed up and dreamt that maybe one day I'd go. That dream is now a reality as at 7.15am a week Thursday our coach will pick us up, take us to a gorgeous stately home for a full English champagne breakfast, transport us to Ascot (with wine served on board) and serve us a buffet lunch (with more wine!) before we watch the Royal Procession, then enjoy a day's racing before heading back home! Can't wait!!

To say thank you to the 6 ladies who are coming with me, I decided to put together some party bags for them. The colours all match their respective outfits and say something about them lol. The contents of the bags include; their favourite tipple, a disposable wine glass, a wine glass ring, a Ferrero Rocher in a cute little favour box, a pack of paracetamol and an eye mask (for on the way home lol). I hope they like them ;)
