REGULAR readers and customers will know we’ve been celebrating The Women’s Society Boutique turning 10 years old with lots of different events. We also wanted to celebrate as a team (some of us have been working at the boutique for years and others are quite new), together we make up a dedicated group who love The Women’s Society and work really hard to create something special, unique and super stylish for our customers. So last week we were surprised by Victoria with an incredible dinner at Number One Porthill in Hertford and had the most fabulous evening together, our very own WS Girls festivities. Number One Porthill is a beautiful Grade II listed Georgian townhouse in Hertford offering bed and breakfast, private dinners, events, launches and weekend pampering packages. This elegant venue is available to hire for any occasion and we were lucky enough to have the house to ourselves for the evening.
Upon arrival Anne and Emily greeted us all with champagne in a chic hallway full of original Georgian features and beautiful décor. We were then shown upstairs to an exquisite drawing room where an array of appetisers awaited us. As we settled in Emily talked us through a gin menu and created cocktails from fresh ingredients all set out on a vintage bar. Before we knew it dinner was ready and it was time to move back downstairs to the dining room, another glorious space. The food was outstanding, the quality, taste and friendly service was out of this world and because it was just us, it gave us the chance to talk and enjoy each other’s company in the most charming surroundings. After dinner we retired to the drawning room for tea, coffee and macarons – the perfect way to end the perfect evening. Number One is the most enchanting place, ideal for celebrating, and the eclectic interior design made us feel like we were in a stylish wonderland! Here are some of our personal pictures from the night…
Not only did we all enjoy ourselves, Victoria managed to keep the evening a secret, so we had no idea where we were going. Celebrating 10 years of The Women’s Society in such an outstanding venue truly blew us away, in fact we were all quite happy to move in to Number One Porthill! Anne and Emily were the perfect hosts, so warm and friendly, and we all look forward to going back again very soon.
