So, every summer I go to a very over-the-top fancy dress house party called ‘A Fete Worse Than Death’.
Each year carries a ‘Best of British’ theme (as garden fetes are very ‘British’ in a ‘Bridget Jones’ parents’ kinda way), with a slight twist – last year was Best of British TV, year before was ‘I Do Like to Be Beside the Seaside’, year before was ‘Make Do And Mend/Blitz Spirit’ (as the credit crunch was in full swing). Everyone goes completely nuts with their outfits, so making a token gesture is never enough.
This year the fete has been teamed up with the opening night of the Olympics, as the hostess’ home is practically opposite the Olympic stadium. And the theme this year, therefore, is gold.
Gold? That’s it? GOLD? What can I do with that??! Please, dopers, help meeee.
