Snippets of a kitchen tea

Some of you might know that my best friend is getting married soon. By soon, I mean Saturday. It’s so exciting! We had a kitchen tea for her last Saturday. The theme was Mad Hatter Tea Party and we dressed her up like Alice in Wonderland. Think bow, Peter Pan collar dress, pocket watch and bunny brooches! She was very confused as to why we were dressing her like that but she figured it out. It seems that a kitchen tea is never complete without a little embarrassment and I am not sure why! The sign she is holding in one of the pics below is what she held when going to neighbours asking for some cash to get married. She made 107ZAR, not bad!
