Held at Centennial Park on a nigh-on-perfect summer’s day, it was an awesome afternoon of food, fun & Christmas present.
Over sixty food bloggers descended onto Centennial Park with a plate of food in one hand and a secret santa/Kris Kringle present in the other.
The beautiful macaron tower was made by Cleony from I Eat Sweet. Awesome effort that I’m sure Adriano Zumbo would even be proud of.
As with all food blogger gatherings that I’ve ever attended, there’s a distinct bias towards the sweet dishes over savoury ones, like these simple but ultra cute strawberry santas by Ayana.
There were also “food blogger olympics”, with various challenges and a Kris Kringle game that went on for hours, or at least it felt it did.
Check out Helen’s account of the food blogger olympics and more at Grab Your Fork.
As the way these things always go, it was an awesome day of catching up with old friends, food, meeting some new ones, food, fun activities, food, presents and the obligatory group photo.
Oh, and food.
A big thanks to Helen & Suze for making this an even better Christmas picnic than last year, and to all the food bloggers in attendance for the great food!
Edit: Credit and thanks to StarLoz‘s dad for taking the group photo for us!
