Intoxicating Tea Party

I realise my blog activity has been much reduced this past week, but that's because I was helping my neighbour with a huge fund raiser for the North East Romanian Support Group charity.

Well the event was yesterday - an "Intoxicating Tea- Party" - where cocktails were made and served from gorgeous china teapots into pretty china cups.

The event was a huge success, all 120 tickets were sold by word of mouth without advertising, the food and cocktails were absolutely delicious and the best bit of all...

The group managed to raise in excess of £2700 - final figure later once all monies are in!

So, the afternoon started with a welcome from the group leader then a party game.  There was then a fashion show, cocktails & cake stand treats (- don't they look delicious,) vodka jellies and a raffle, cocktails, another game and another cocktail then finally supper and if anyone still wanted...a cocktail or two more!

A lot of hard work went in to organising & running the event but when the group saw just how much money they had made it was agreed that it was certainly worth all the hard work and effort.

Great fun too! Jx

What a fabulous outcome Janice and I bet great fun was had by all. The cake stands look fabulous and I'm intrigued to know what the little shot glasses contain, looks like lemon and orange jelly, but I suspect not!! xx

Well done you, helping to raise such a fab amount! I love the idea of an 'intoxicating tea party' I might have to try that when my 6 months on the wagon are up!!! I never thought it would be so difficult to not drink as I don't really drink that much anyway but it seems all I think about these days is a nice glass of something sparkly lol
