a few weeks ago i was wandering the aisles in woolworths with madeline, trying to do my shopping when i unexpectedly bumped into a friend from church. we chatted for a few minutes, during which she blurted out that one of the young women was about to turn 18 and that the young women's president had decided to throw her a high tea and had asked her to organise it... but that she had absolutely no idea what to do, or where to start. i mentioned that mum and i had done quite a few and that it was kind of "our thing" and offered to help. apparently i was the answer to her prayers and here we are!
sariah is 18 this weekend and the young women wanted to give her a surprise party with all the trimmings... so it happened. last night! we made it super fancy. other than the chair covers and the sashes/table runners, all the decs came from mums place, with a few things of mine and my oh my did it look amazing! it was so much fun putting together and so easy with the help of the mia maids.
one of the other laurels decorated these amazing cupcakes too. yummmmm!
sariah as a baby on the goody bags supplied by the young womens leaders, after all what is a party without a goody bag?
welcome to sariah's par-tea! the girls were so proud of themselves for thinking that one up!
vintage trio sets from mum place. they really make it a "high" tea
and a photobooth with vintage and other random props to boot... the girls had such a good time with them once they were done eating and drinking tea
one of the best purchases i've made... a punch fountain. it's a little noisy, but looks so cute!
the hot drinks... for a recipe for amazing slow cooker hot chocolate: here
it was scraped back to nothing by the end of the night, it is so yum!
all the food was awesome and the girls went all out with their assignments. i was so glad to be a part of such an awesome night with no effort spared
this cake was lovingly made by another one of the young womens leaders. it looked so yum!
as the guest of honour arrived it was all worth it, she was so thrilled! what an awesome night to be a part of.
we love you sariah!
