We booked the fantastic double act 'For The Boys' - after seeing them regularly at The George Tavern - for a vintage singalong and decided the ideal theme would be 'Dress in the Era of Your Choice'.
For decorations we decided on good old British and Aussie bunting (Mr Misfit's roots) with some flags for waving (à la Last Night of The Proms) and some photos of the Birthday Boy through the ages.
'For The Boys' did a fab job of getting everyone singing along to classics from the 30's to the noughties and then we handed over to our son for the dance tracks.
It was most definitely a night to remember, with friends embracing the theme and turning up in their finery. We had everything from cowboys to flappers, French Revolution through to the 70's and a Madonna!
Many photos below but I think, on this occasion, they speak louder than words.
