Birthdays can be fairly big out here in Dubai. You don’t have your family with, so your friends band around and make sure you have a good time!
My friend Denise always has the best ideas for birthdays, and the celebration of her 35th birthday which she hosted this year was probably the best yet… or going forward!!!!!
The Great Gatsby Gala!
Dressing up of course was the name of the game. 1920’s inspired whether in the ‘flapper’ way or the latest movie way. Anything would go… and did it ever go! Everyone made such an effort and we all looked fantastic!!
The party was set on a 70ft yacht that cruised out of Dubai Marina, up to the Burj Al Arab and back again. The staff on hand to make sure you always had your glasses filled were polite, un-invasive and always on hand. The boat was beautiful, well maintained, and the perfect size.
But then there was the entertainment… Luke Britton.

While not era appropriate for the Gatsby theme, his vocal stylings were the perfect musical setting to cruising along the ocean with the lights of Dubai twinkling behind us. Just wow!
For those of you who haven’t heard the name before, Luke is the fabulous singer at Ruth’s Chris Steak House at the Address Marina. He is so good in fact, that it took me a good hour to realise he was there the first time we went. But, not only is his voice amazing and smooth as honey, but he is great fun too and takes requests.
(As a reminder Mr. Britton… “Hollywood Will Listen” next time please!!!)
All that is needed now, is a few photos!!
