The weather last Wednesday night was perfectly horrible – cold, wet and windy. But almost perfect for the “secret” event which held at West Didsbury’s And The Dish Ran Away With The Spoon. The lights were dimmed, the tealights were lit and the shutters were down, locking in the lucky few of us who were invited to The Era Of Experience event. With more than a nod to the era of Prohibition, the ladies behind the event definitely put on a show!

The event was hosted by Anna at And The Dish Ran Away The Spoon, which was transformed for the evening into a roaring twenties SpeakEasy joint. On offer were Gin Rickey Cupcakes, Gatsby Candied Lemon Cakes, Chiffon Pies, Flapper or Gangster cakes – and individual Red Velvet Cakes in jars, just the way ladies in the ’20s used to bake them. Biscuit Tortoni desserts – full of rum, brandy, cream and chocolate were also on offer – all in very delicate lady sized portions!

Cocktails were served up from vintage china teapots into vintage cups and saucers (supplied by For The Love of Vintage) – even Elliott Ness himself would have been fooled had he decide to drop in!

Vintage make-up  artist Bethany Jayne Davies was on hand to transform the guests into glamorous flappers – pin curls and red lips were the order of the evening!

All in all, it was a very glamorous evening – and all the better because it was all very hush-hush. However, the glamorous girls behind it aren’t always as secretive – they can put together a very unique event for you, whether it be a hen party or just a gathering of your favourite friends, and similarly themed to the Era Of Experience.
