High tea with vintage frocks
Liongirl and I were invited to a girls only High Tea yesterday. The invitation specified the wearing of frocks so we decided to go vintage. Liongirl wore the this gorgeous little white dress that we found at our local op shop for $5 a few weeks back. Of course embellished with an underskirt of a tutu and the essential fairy wings. There was much twirling and whirling of that wonderful skirt.
I was lucky to have my gorgeous tea dress arrive just in the nick of time. The fabric has Australian wildflowers, with lots of wattle in particular, so a mustard cardi was a must. As an avid follower of Bec's blog Naughty Shorts she gave me the option of either having her original dress design, or her newer design with optional pockets. How gorgeous is this dress and her workmanship is spot on, you can tell this is a dress made with love and care.
Look at the lovely v back.
And perfect for twirling.
But enough about the frocks, what about the food? My gorgeous friend made every single treat on this table. And it was HER birthday.
The little girls even had their own table covered in miniature treats. With a resident chicken to clear up the crumbs.
Liongirl only left that table to sample the high end cupcakes on ours.
Needless to say, Liongirl could not be extracted until dark and she is still talking about it. Roboboy was most unimpressed that it was a girls only affair. We made it up to the boys today with some Fathers day celebrations down at our favourite park.
We did so love our girls only adventure, Liongirl and I. Time to start planning our own tea party I think.
