Norman Horne: Life of the Party

Clearly, Norman Horne enjoys outdoing himself! Just when you thought he threw the event of all events last year with his Order of Distinction conferment celebration, he decided to give himself the challenge of one-upping last year's event. Horne celebrated his birthday in exquisite style Saturday last. And, when Tuesday Social says exquisite it's not hyperbole — after all, the dress code was “boasy”.

By bringing Pussbackfoot creative director Aeisha Panton into the picture, Horne converted the grounds of his palatial Jack's Hill home into Nikki Beach. Pavilions of natural wood were erected to house the bar and numerous food stations. Speaking of food, an array of Jamaican and international dishes was created by Ashebre The Virtual Restaurant Culinary Artist Chef Oji Jaja. From succulent jerk to almost done-to-order pasta, to moreish curry goat, nothing was too good or too much for the birthday celebrant.

Horne entrusted the music to none other than a true vibes man DJ Bambino, who kept the crowd hopping with a mix of Jamaican favourites.

The English language fails to describe the multi-sensory spectacle, so we'll turn to patois. Ah so party fi do!

Oh, who were some of those notable Jamaicans, you ask? From captains of industry to adroit politicians, so many of The Rock's who's who came out to say happy birthday to Horne. Plus, there was a personal message from PM Holness delivered by MP Daryl Vaz

As the night drew to a close in the small hours of the morning, the balmy St Andrew air was swept away by a cool mist. However, at Norman Horne's birthday, the temperature continued to rise, as guests kept dancing and celebrating one of The Rock's finest.

Cheers, Norman, and here's to many more!
