Darla is the Darling Sisters’ resident fashionista and Miss Manners. Her philosophy is that life should be experienced with great shoes and a glass of champers. Oh, and red lipstick and Cuban-heeled stockings. Men should always offer a lady a seat and notice what they are wearing – unless it’s followed by “Is that new, and how much did you spend?”! Darla has been teaching “Charm School” for a couple of years and has met some amazing people. Don’t forget, charm WILL get you everywhere! With her totally gorgeous sister Blossom, Darla tries to make the world a better place to live in.

Blossom is the Darling Sisters’ food and beverage expert. Her philosophy is that life is a gift that should be experienced and appreciated with all of the senses. We are definitely here for too brief a time to be expected to tolerate silly restrictive diets, poorly-made cloying cocktails and boorish table manners. Blossom feels very fortunate to live in Australia where we have access to some of the loveliest foods and beverages that the world can offer, not to mention glorious landscapes, clever artists and fascinatingly diverse people. Blossom’s idea of the perfect evening is to meet interesting people from across the world while listening to excellent jazz, and clutching an elegant glass containing a perfectly-made extra-dry Martini. Everything seems so much nicer that way.
