The tea party in honour of a lovely new friend Susanne (left). Miss Cara hosted the party and received a beautiful Precious Package.
Sushi made an appearance on the tea table.
Old vintage books were strung from a beautifully fragrant tree (each time I hung one from a branch, the woodiness and zesty leaf smell entered the air).
What is a Mad Hatters Tea Party without clocks...after all,we can't miss any important dates (this being one of them).
A very pretty vintage table laden with deliciousness.
Miss Cara playing the perfect hostess as she made sure all had a cup of tea.
And she even managed to do so whilst wearing gloves.
Even Alice joined us for a cuppa...
Six ladies and one ginger cheshire enjoyed an afternoon tea that perhaps was somewhat more civilised with the perfect amount of mad hatter thrown in. And we had fun. Badminton, tea galore to choose from (we sampled a number along the way), cucumber sandwiches, scones with jam and cream, even sushi adding a contemporary twist, was part of our very pleasant afternoon tea. We enjoyed it so much so that we are already talking about ideas for our next Tea Party and croquet may just be involved.
On a side note, Jamie Oliver comes to Ipswich next Saturday the 3rd of March and we here at Serendipity central are a wee bit silly with excitement!!! So stay tuned for further posts including our new Jamie display window in Precious Packages...!!!
