The Fitzwilliam Hotel, Belfast was filled with the ethereal light for its summer party. The lobby transformed to a luminous glade from Shakespeare's Midsummer's Night Dream.
Jam jars packed with poseys, sat on side tables the sweet heady scent of sweetpea filling the air.
Hydrangeas in blues and greens, sat with hurricane lamps and flickering candle light. The trendy lobby of the Fitzwilliam Hotel took on the atmosphere of a secret garden, to which only a few had a key.

The Fitzwilliam's lobby was filled with the sound of funk jazz.

The Fitz Berry Blitz - my favourite soft cocktail combining bramble berry flavours and mint, was refreshing with just the right amount of zing.
Glasses of wine, and funky martini's in hues to match the flowers were the alcoholic drinks of the evening.
But the food, oh the food. The Fitzwilliam Hotel do canapes brilliantly. And I was dazzled by the sweet salty flavour combinations during the summer party. Salted caramel eclairs with chocolate salt meringue and lemon meringue mini pies. The lemon curd was zesty and soft which contrasted well on the palate with the smooth crisp of the meringue, and the pastry cases were crunchy and perfectly cooked.
Dill brought a fresh flavour to the sweet brown bread, goat's cheese and roasted pepper bite sized canapes.
The Fitzwilliam Hotel Belfast is one of the best Hotels and venues the city has to offer. Its fresh funky boutique appeal, excellent service (the staff remember your name), well thought out menu and bar, the clean interiors and wonderful beds make the customer feel very special. It is one of my favourite places to hang out and I hope it will become yours too.
That's it for now ...
