Ladbrokes Wimbledon Summer Party

To celebrate the final round of Wimbledon last weekend, myself and other UK bloggers were invited to a Wimbledon Summer Party in London hosted by Ladbrokes. When I first saw the invite to this pop up in my inbox I was so excited, I am a big fan of watching Wimbledon - tennis is one of the only sports that I actually understand and enjoy watching.
To keep in with the Wimbledon theme, the dress code was white. Unfortunately I didn't have any white dresses to wear and didn't have time to buy one beforehand, so I had to go with white jeans and an orange top. However I did try and make an extra effort with white heels, white nails and a white bag!
When I arrived, I was blown away by the gorgeous decorations. The Ladbrokes team did such a good job setting up the venue and keeping in with the Wimbledon theme. There was an endless suppy of Pimms, Prosecco, very tasty looking cupcakes and lots of tennis themed goodies. As well as some pretty bunting which gave a real summer feel (and strawberries of course).

The evening began with lots of Pimms drinking, catching up with some familiar faces and getting to know bloggers I haven't met before. This is my favourite thing about attending blogger events - it's so nice to meet bloggers I follow in person.

The Ladbrokes team had organised some really fun activities for us to take part in throughout the evening to win some prizes, the first being a Wimbledon quiz. Although I love Wimbledon I have to admit most of my answers were guesses! But it was still so much fun taking part and we all had a giggle trying to work out the correct answers.
There was also some beer pong (tennis pong) to take part in, a celebrity selfie challenge which was so much fun and a strawberry piƱata that we each had to attempt to crack whilst blindfolded. This proved rather difficult but eventually we beat it and Fran won a bottle of Pimms for her amazing effort!
After we completed all the challenges set for us by the Ladbrokes team we continued to chat away and finish off all the Pimms which was so yummy. 
Of course we had to get a few selfies in too... I even had one with Andy Murray! (haha).
We ended the night with a group photo and we were each given a really cute personalised goodie bag full of sweets which was a lovely touch.

I had such a fun evening at the Wimbledon Summer Party, thank you so much to all the Ladbrokes team for inviting me along and organising a really great event. Although I didn't win any of the prizes I did get to take home lots of sweets and one of these tennis caps which we all got a bit attached to and didn't want to take off even when we left!
