The Mad Tea Party

Hello,

They say a picture paints a thousand words... I'm rather glad because I am too worn out from our tea party to write much. Moving tables and chairs, and heavy signs, and gazebos on a hot day is exhausting!

So without further ado - here was the day, and it was brilliant!


















 
Do you like my on theme face paint?












 
These were the glass painted pieces drying in the sunshine!

 
As Wavelengths (our local gym and pool) was 25 years old today, the lovely Holly came down to run an 1980's themed exercise class. Just look at that leotard!

















A great Tea Party was had by all!

Don't forget to visit A Fanciful Twist to see all the other blogs around the world hosting tea parties today!


Thanks for reading,


Kirsty

  1. Love, Love, these pictures. Everything has an urban, city-sprawl feel to it. The clock. The pink flamingo. All of it. It feels real, like you can touch it. Thank you for sharing your cup of tea and by all means stop on by for a biscuit or three at my own mad gathering here: http://thenarratorsstudy.blogspot.com/

  14. Wow!!! What a tea party! So many unique aspects in one party. The themed face paint was fun to see. The table looked lovely. Crafts, kids, & cookies (?) ! It looks like you had a great turn out and a great deal of fun. I really enjoyed visiting your Mad Tea Party.

    Though I didn't get my party together, I put together a little thank you on my blog. Feel free to stop by if you like.
