Pink Ribbon Breakfast in the Sky

A beautiful Spring morning with a Pink Ribbon Breakfast in the sky…. Talk about a magical start to a Thursday. Well I got to live this magic last Thursday when I was invited along by a lovely lady to a Freehills breakfast for Pink Ribbon Day where they had a talk by the inspirational Kate Lamont.

It was all blue skies and sunshine when I jumped into the lift and soared up to level 36. Wow – what a view they have out their function room window! An uninterrupted vision of theSwanRiver, I couldn’t help but smile as I took in what a beautiful city I am lucky enough to live in.

 

Starting the morning with a glass or two of pink champagne was also a novelty that I embraced. There is something special about a glass of bubbles with the girls.

At this stage everyone was standing around chatting and they brought around some tasty mini savoury muffins, naturally served along side pink serviettes in the spirit of the day.

We were soon seated and each table was adorned with towers of delicious looking breakfast treats.

The first tier had pastries including croissants with tomato, cheese and pesto and also a selection of fruit danishes.

Then below that were dainty glasses of fruit salad….

And finally some small warm rolls that went perfectly with the generous dishes of butter and jam that were also available.

Finally everyone was presented with a tea cup I suppose it was that was filled with this cheesy egg mix which had a hard boiled egg in the middle. Not sure if that is the best description but the combination of flavours was great! Always nice when people get a little creative on the egg front.

So I started with my egg tea cup and looking around the table they were clearly a popular dish given that everyone had polished them off. Next I sampled one of the croissants, the pesto worked really well! Then I couldn’t go past the opportunity to try some of the raspberry jam and was quite liberal with my jam to roll ratio. And I ended my meal with some fruit salad, which was quite the refreshing finish to the incredible meal.

All the while that we were savouring the sumptuous selection of food in front of us we were listening to the inspiring story of Kate Lamont and her rise to one of Perth’s top restaurateurs and also her passion for tourism in Western Australia. She was an excellent speaker – very interesting and engaging.

After such a lovely start to my morning I didn’t really feel like heading back to the office but I found myself smiling at my desk for the rest of the day as I looked at the pretty pink gerberas that I had gotten to take with me as a reminder of my special morning. Thanks Freehills!
