I came, I saw, I tea partied (or something like that). Saturday was the day of the Tea at the Cathedral Event that I, and several others, had been organising at church. It was a charity tea party to raise funds for our wonderful church building and it was a great opportunity for us women to get together, have a natter and drink copious amounts of tea!
A lot of work went into it as we had a lot of high hopes for the event and didn’t want to disappoint. In fact, planning this was the main reason for my blogging hiatus over the past few months.
For their entrance fee, the ladies got their cream tea and their chance to get crafty, a little bit of pampering if they wanted it and a gift bag – what a bargain, eh?
With a red carpet and a little bit of live music thrown into the mix too, it turned out to be a great event and a good time was had by all. Even better, we raised a lot of money for the charity in the process!
Many an afternoon (and evening) was spent making the cupcake flags for the gift bags, making paper pom poms, making paper heart bunting and drilling holes in vintage china to make cake plates – all in preparation for the big day….. phew! More info on how to make those soon….
Lastly, a very BIG THANK YOU SHOUT OUT
needs to go to Steady Hire Ltd
for letting us use their chairs and tables for free! And to Marina at Knittery
who shared her knitting expertise with everybody!
AND to the wonderful team of ladies who worked with me to put this event together – you know who you are – I couldn’t have done it without you!
