I’m just going to warn you now, the majority of the photos in this post are of food. Delicious, mouthwatering food. This post may induce hunger. You have been warned.
So a couple of Saturdays ago, I was lucky enough to attend the #MeetUpAtMal organised by the lovely Hannah from Raspberry Kitsch. The event was held at the ever so swanky Malmaison Hotel, which sits on the Newcastle Quayside.
I immediately decided the Malmaison was a bit too posh for me when I stepped into the lift and it started speak French. Like, actual French words that I couldn’t understand!!
Despite the daunting lift scenario, I was made to feel so at ease, and was handed a glass of bubbly as I walked through the door.
After much mingling with fellow Northern bloggy lovelies came the canapés. My photographs do them no justice as the presentation was amazing. I loved that they came out on a slate which just went hand in hand with the whole chic vibe that the Malmaison boasts.
As delicious as the canapés were however, I did have to spend the rest of the afternoon speaking with my hand over my mouth in fear of gassing the other bloggers with my salsa breath. Not exactly fabulous.
As well as having a good old natter, the event was also a great opportunity to learn about the Malmaison, its staff, its function rooms and what it has to offer.
Can we just take a moment to appreciate these delicious lemon-filled heaven balls. (foodporndaily.com eat yer heart out)
They were very aptly named “lemon bombs” as they did actually explode on a few people when trying to pick them off the tray! I maaaayyy have followed the tray round the room, but can you blame me? *drools*
I must admit this event got me very excited thinking about what could happen for bloggers in the North East in the future. We’ve had so many events here in the past few months and it’s nice to see things actually happen up here when most blogging events are held in London.
Big thanks to Hannah and the Malmaison for such a lovely event
