Event | Ladbrokes Wimbledon White Party LDN


I recently got invited down to London to attend the Ladbrokes Wimbledon white party for a night of summer cocktails and party games. After I had such a good time at the Ladbrokes boat party (which you might have read about here) I knew it would be a good event, so I looked forward to getting another taste of the Ladbrokes party life. 

Leeds Travel VS London Travel
The night before the event I made the best decision ever to go on an all out 3am shots shots shots drinking sesh with the girls in Leeds, despite having to be up for a full day of work the next day before getting the train down to London. 

As you can imagine, when 5pm came and I got on the Leeds to London train with fellow blogger Dei, I wasn't feeling too cracking. I closed my eyes and hoped that the feeling of wanting to vomit went away, especially for the sake of the lady sat opposite me. Thankfully it did go away, and I put it down to the fact that the loveliest couple ever got on a few stops into the journey and began chatting with us about their 25 years of marriage and how they were heading to London to celebrate for the weekend! Sounds random but they were so friendly and funny, it took my mind off the hangover completely and we were soon sharing their picnic (and even better prosecco!) and having a nice time.

Later, having arrived in London and jumped on the tube, I smiled happily at some guy sat opposite us still feeling the good vibes from earlier. He looked pretty freaked out by it all and I had to quickly remind myself we weren't amongst overly friendly Yorkshire folk anymore and it was head down ignore everyone mode, in true London town style haha! 

Cupcakes galore, cocktails and games!
When we arrived at the fabulous Martha's Bar at the Willamson's Tavern, I was pretty impressed with the decor - beautiful chandeliers and cute bunting, plus a table full of afternoon tea style goodies (including some amazing cupcakes!) plus lots of summer style cocktails. We were greeted with a nice glass of prosecco and began chatting and catching up with the other blogging gals. Some of my faves who I got to talk to were Roxi and Karl who i'd actually met at the last Ladbrokes event, and Lauren from Blonde Vision who's boobs I will be forever jealous of! 










Soon it was onto the games where we all got to work out a few of our anger issues on the strawberry piƱata, and had some fun trying our hand at beer pong. There was also a big wimbledon quiz with a chance to win £100 worth of vouchers (this is where I found out I knew nothing about wimbledon/tennis lol whoops!).






Before long it was sadly time to head back on the train to Leeds, so we made a dash to the station like Cinderella's leaving a wimbledon themed ball! 

Thanks so much to Ladbrokes for hosting such a lovely night :)
