To celebrate my younger brother's 21st Birthday in style, Ximula Sail and I threw him a yacht party, where he got to invite 15 of his friends for a 4-hr adventure out at sea. Kreme Couture Bakery was also on board (literally) to provide the Nautical-themed Tapas and (super adorable) Cupcakes you see in the pictures above. Christabel was also there throughout the party to help me oversee the party, and just spend one-on-one girl time together.
Ximula Sail offers a morning charter session, and an evening one - we obviously opted for the evening charter because nothing beats experiencing the sunset out at sea with your closest friends. The weather was great that day: the passing showers in the morning made the skies cloudy, so it wasn't too hot or sunny for everyone.
In my brother's words, it was "the best day in his life", and I guess we can all see why. What I love about Ximula is they are always so enthusiastic about making the day special for you and your friends: be it providing coolers for ice cold drinks, allowing us to bring speakers on board so we could blast our favourite tunes while chiling out at sea, and even providing kayaks/ paddle-boards/ rubber dinghy/ and snorkeling masks so everyone can have a great time in the waters!
It was such a breeze planning my brother's 21st Yacht Party because Ximula had everything prepared and all we needed to do was show up with food. I also have to thank the lovely Chris and Ange from Kreme Couture - who also provided the food for I Want A Fashion Blog by the way! - for being so spontaneous and creative with the Tapas and Cupcakes. I suggested going nautical for the food options, so Chris then proposed a selection of squid, shrimp and salmon for Tapas, and having customised nautical-themed vanilla cupcakes. I couldn't have asked for better looking (and tasting!) sweet and savoury treats for 16 wild and crazy young boys.
To share the love, Ximula Sail and I will be giving away a 4-hr Weekend Day Charter (worth $1640) to one lovely reader. You can bring 17 of your family/ friends on board Ximula, afterwhich you'll be sailed away to Lazarus Island where you can kayak/ paddle-board/ snorkel out at sea.
Kreme Couture will also be providing the lucky reader with nautical-themed customised Cupcakes for everyone on board, so you will not have to worry about the mess that comes with your traditional cake-cutting.
