Tea for one...
Whilst I was in the city I was determined to make the most of the precious little time I had to meet with my friends including my frilly ones. I went out in Lolita twice; on Friday and Sunday. I blogged about the Friday meet last week and the second I didn't take any photos of whatsoever! So this week I decided that I would dress up in the same outfit and get some photos.
|I was really glad how this outfit turned out. The mint accents on the Wonder Party skirt matched well with the mint chiffon blouse bringing a light spring air to this coordinate.|
Blouse, socks, wrist cuffs: Baby, the Stars Shine Bright
Skirt: Angelic Pretty
However, I thought it would be a shame to only do that so I decided to throw a tea party and invite some of my friends.
|The rapturous rabbit in bodyline is Abbigale and that handsome face wearing Krad Lanrete on the right is Big Ted.|
As the weather favoured it, we had a lovely outside tea party and I went all out and used my special tea set.
|Matching tea set: A pink rabbit for sweet Abbigale and a brown rabbit for the classic Big Ted.|
This tea set was made especially for me by my Granny when I was a baby. It has the most gorgeous hand-painted rabbits on it in different colours, even a yellow-green one. I often used it as a kid with my friends and we would have tea parties inside the house. Mum would fill the tea pot full of Milo - I guess I didn't have very refined tastes as a child. I hadn't used the set for well over ten years so it was really special to get it out and have a bit of fun.
|I haven't had a tea party like this in ages. It was a lot of fun to catch up with old friends.|
Did you have tea parties like this when you were little?
Before my guests departed we took the time to get a few selfies together.
I really had a fantastic time and it made for a great day off. Hopefully the weather stays this nice for a while as I would love to dress up again in the near future.
