When it comes to being generally fabulous and stylish and just GORGEOUS, Nathalie Marquez Courtney knows a thing or zillion. As editor of Image Interiors, it is her job to decide what’s hot and what’s not in the land of beautiful homes, so it stands to reason that she is a dab hand at throwing a shindig. Last month, her niece Isabel turned one, and with the help of Smyth + Barry catering and Ceri Rua crafts, Nathalie hosted the birthday party that dreams are made of. Polkadot-tastic, you will want to emulate this, if not for a tiny person, for YOURSELF. Check out the photos on her blog nathalie.ie and prepare to drool – it’s the ultimate internet exploring for a Friday afternoon.
