A Marriage Proposal and Celebrations
A marriage proposal at Glebe House!
How romantic and so wonderful for us as hosts! Between the starter and the main course our guest unexpectedly proposed to his partner. And of course she accepted with joy. We wish them both many congratulations and were honoured to be the first to know!
That set me thinking about all the celebrations we've hosted at Glebe House. We've had brithday celebrations ranging from 40th to 90th so there's clearly no limit.
It seems 60th birthday celebrations are a bit of a speciality - I wonder why? Is it that by then we like comfort, privacy and luxury to celebrate our life's milestones? It's inspiring to see how our guests celebrate them in different ways. One couple made good use of their lounge to reminisce over their photo albums arranged on the floor and on the TV screen; another group celebrated with friends and a surprise cake and champagne on the sunny patio; on another occasion the birthday lady was surprised by her brother being here. With my big birthday coming up soon I'm storing up ideas!
It's not just been birthdays; guests have told us they are coming to celebrate their wedding anniversary too. When we know there's a special reason to celebrate we make sure the dining room has its romantic feel for the private dinner.
I guess that's what's different about a place like Glebe House. We have the time and the smallness to consider what our guests want for their stay and, as much as we can, we reflect that in the rooms and the service that we give.
Happy celebrating to all.
