To celebrate my 23rd Birthday I had an after dark Tea Party with homemade cakes, cucumber sandwiches and gin in the teapot. I was having too much fun to take any pictures but my sweet fiance too these.
This was only one of my three birthday cakes, it wouldn't have been a tea party otherwise.
I made this bunting with my lovely new Bernina sewing machine. Thankyou Adam, I dont know how I ever lived without it.
I took this before I put my hair in curlers so excuse my flat hair.
I wore this dress from George at Asda. I could hardly believe my luck when I found it, especially since I was only intending on buying a box of tea (Earl Grey, ofcourse). Before now I've only ever bought childrens school cardigans (£4, I have one in every colour) so I was quite surprised to find this little darling.
At first I thought the cut was a little odd, a drop waist with bow and pleated skirt but for only £18 I bought it anyway. I've worn it here with a tulle petticoat to puff it out. I also cut off the bow so I could wear it with the belt.

At the approach of Midnight, I made like Cinderella and retired for the evening. Thankyou very much for all my lovely presents.
