#HappyBirthday to dearest #FreddieMercury , the ultimate & most favorite habitant of millions of hearts ❤
#OTD , September 5th 1977 – Freddie held a Birthday Party, #CountryCousin, #KingsRoad, #London, #UK .
Birthday celebrations were treated with particularly detailed attention. The birthday party in question was, after all, a Freddie Mercury Production! The one I'd like to recall in some detail was the famous thirtieth birthday party bash in 1977 held at the notorious cabaret club Country Cousin run by #ChristopherHunter & our dear friend #Cherry Brown. Freddie insisted that I throw the party for him & make all the arrangements. Apart from settling the huge final bill was his week long project of writing by hand every single one of the 150 invitations. The thought of having them printed was overridden by his original whimsical & charming insistence on writing each one personally although it didn't occurred to him how long this exercise would take. The guest list who had been exhorted to 'dress to kill', included #EltonJohn, #JohnReid, #TimCurry, #Divine, #KennyEverett, & every luminary in London's music business.
The most expensive item on that evening's bill was the flowers. Freddie adored flowers. 30 boxes of blooms were used that day ; irises, lilies, orchids, freesia, gladioli, roses every flower imaginable which was available at that time of year. These decorated the tables, the pillars, the walls, the bar area and the loos. The whole effect was spectacular & as his 1st big party, Freddie's birthday celebration opened the floodgates to what became a tide of lavish & remarkable parties which marked the course of the rest of his life. ✒ David Minns .
Always very generous , creative , thoughtful ,artistic & gentle dear Freddie.Only the detail of him rejecting to print the invitations & instead write them by himself could be enough to write novels on his noble heart. Welcoming the best day of the year, our darlings birthday ❤ More to come ...Let`s celebrate this wonderful day 🍷❤
