Surprise birthday Grand Design

What could be more of a surprise than a trip to Warburton, in the mountains north of Melbourne for a surprise birthday in a house that featured on Grand Designs TV show? The pizza party was put on for our daughter by her friends. Hosts Hailey, Tyrone and Ross delighted the party girl and us with sparkling wine, peach Bellini, design-your-own gourmet pizza and an almond and raspberry tart garnished with fresh cottage flowers. Children frolicked round the adjacent lake while Hailey fed the resident ducklings.

The house, which is made of polystyrene and features a grassed roof has a seven-star eco rating and is a tribute to the skills and creativity of Tyrone and Hailey. The aquamarine glass on the gates and fishing fly sculptures particularly appealed. Thanks for a lovely day, guys.
