In a ever changing world of technology and screen-time, the feeling of nostalgia that a round of bowling conjures seems all the more delightful. Meeting up with friends to partake in the social sport that was so popular back in the 40s and 50s is still a favourite of my husband and we especially love All Star Lanes in Bayswater.
 

This​ ​bowling​ ​alley​ ​has​ ​been​ ​themed​ ​and​ ​decorated​ ​with​ ​a​ ​nod​ ​to​ ​the​ ​1950s​ ​and​ ​not​ ​only​ ​has bowling​ ​lanes,​ ​but​ ​a​ ​bar​ ​and​ ​restaurant​ ​with​ ​classic​ ​American​ ​style​ ​food​ ​and​ ​big​ ​red​ ​vinyl booths! 


I​ ​know​ ​what​ ​you’re​ ​thinking​ ​-​ ​this​ ​sounds​ ​the​ ​perfect​ ​place​ ​for​ ​a​ ​50s​ ​party,​ ​right?​ ​RIGHT!​ ​And that’s​ ​exactly​ ​what​ ​went​ ​down​ ​on​ ​the​ ​eve​ ​of​ ​September​ ​15th,​ ​aptly​ ​named​ ​‘Pins​ ​&​ ​Pinups’
All​ ​Star​ ​Lanes​ ​teamed​ ​up​ ​with​ ​Campbell​ ​Crafts​ ​to​ ​create​ ​one​ ​epic​ ​night​ ​of​ ​bowling,​ ​shopping and​ ​music.​ ​

 Ticket​ ​holders​ ​received​ ​a​ ​drink​ ​upon​ ​arrival​ ​and​ ​were​ ​treated​ ​to​ ​American​ ​style canapés​ ​through​ ​the​ ​night.​ ​There​ ​were​ ​several​ ​store​ ​selling​ ​their​ ​gorgeous​ ​wares​ ​like​ ​Luxulite, Retro Peppers,​ ​What​ ​Katie​ ​Did​ ​and​ ​of​ ​course Campbell Crafts, who organised the event with All Star Lanes and​ ​who’s​ own brand ​range​ ​fitted​ ​the​ ​theme​ ​completely! 


After​ ​a​ ​little​ ​bit​ ​of​ ​shopping,​ ​catching​ ​up​ ​with​ ​friends​ ​and​ ​making​ ​new​ ​ones,​ ​plus​ ​a​ ​cocktail​ ​or two,​ ​it​ ​was​ ​time​ ​to​ ​listen​ ​to​ ​some​ ​of​ ​the​ ​bands​ ​and​ ​even​ ​have​ ​a​ ​bit​ ​of​ ​a​ ​dance!​ ​There​ ​were​ ​two bands​ ​playing​ ​-​ ​Betty​ ​and​ ​the​ ​Bootleggersand​ ​My​ ​Favourite​ ​Thingsand​ ​they​ ​both​ ​helped​ ​to create​ ​such​ ​a​ ​fun​ ​bowling​ ​alley​ ​party​ ​scene! 


Of​ ​course,​ ​the​ ​night​ ​wouldn’t​ ​have​ ​been​ ​complete​ ​without​ ​a​ ​round​ ​or​ ​two​ ​of​ ​bowling​ ​and​ ​by​ ​the end,​ ​there​ ​were​ ​some​ ​very​ ​-​ ​shall​ ​we​ ​say​ ​-​ ​creative​ ​bowling​ ​techniques...​ ​I’m​ ​not​ ​sure​ ​that​ ​they helped​ ​get​ ​more​ ​points​ ​on​ ​the​ ​screen​ ​but​ ​they​ ​certainly​ ​providing​ ​a​ ​lot​ ​of​ ​laughs​ ​and entertainment!
