Diary: It takes more than Christmas baubles for a really flashy seasonal bash

It may come as a surprise to those readers now bent under the weight of credit card bills, but irrefutable proof reaches me that the economy really is on the up.

It may come as a surprise to those readers now bent under the weight of

credit card bills, but irrefutable proof reaches me that the economy

really is on the up.



The lead comes from no less than the Hon Aurelia Cecil, a director of

high class party organiser Fait Accompli, whose recent Ritz bash for

Bond Street jeweller Philip Morris, attended by the Parker-Bowles clan,

ate up pages in Hello!, the Evening Standard and the Daily Mail.



Cecil, also managing director of Aurelia PR, assures me that throwing

lavish parties is a growing PR phenomenon.



‘Parties are on the up,’ she confides. ‘If you look at the newspapers,

they have pages devoted to them. It’s a sign of a healthy economy.’



Those bon viveurs tempted by the prospect of the Hon Aurelia and pals

coming by to change the records at their Yuletide blowouts - or as they

promise in the Tatler ad: ‘Let us ensure your party is talked about for

months and remembered forever while you relax and enjoy every

faultlessly organised moment.’ - could be in for a disappointment. For

lamentably, as Cecil says, ‘You do have to be rich.’
