My Kitchen Tea

We had a fantastic afternoon on sunday celebrating with all my favorite ladies, lots of yummy food & bubbles! Mum & I kicked off the weekend at 6am on saturday with a trip to the flower markets, then home to set it all up while my dad finished building this outdoor area! Yes thats right he built the deck & the screening in the few weeks before the party - talented man! Lots of people bought yummy food, i seem to have amazing bakers as friends & family! I took a few photos of the set up before everyone came so i could share it with you :)

Have to say i was quite happy with how this white arrangement worked out:)
We used Hyacinths, dahilas & roses in some of my grandmothers antique silver which looked amazing.

My bridesmaid Aylie made this beautiful cake for me!

and yes, there were people there too....
My bridesmaids, me & my mum.

More girls & their bubbles! Oh & my bloggy bestie Sonja joined us too!
(& made her famous rocky road & cupcakes - which i have to say were yuuuum!)

We also played a few games!  There was handbag weighing, a quizz, a guess the spice game for me (above) 
& the 'create the ideal wedding dress with loo paper' game which was hilarious.

Holly in the middle ended up with quite a Vera Wang esq look...until it fell apart!

Aylie & i with a slice of her pink layer cake!

I received some fantastic pressies too! Including this disney princess tupperware from my cousin
(who claims everyone needs a bit of disney in their home haha)
