Hello dear friends.
Great to have you back here and welcome to all my new followers.
I recently had the pleasure of attending a charity spring tea celebration thanks to an invite from a friend. She said I would adore the attention to detail and that it was an event not to be missed. And my oh my.... do these ladies know how to lay on the glam! This was in no way just cake and tea my friends. Oh no... the tables were veritable works of art!
Each table was hosted by a lady who did the decor and the eats and let me tell you that it was a feast to the eye let alone the tastebuds. There were various themes for the hostesses to choose from to decorate their tables in and wonderful prizes to be won for the best in each category.
I was seated at table thirty four and the theme was "Do you still Remember the Fifties?"
Well dear hearts, I don't as I was not about in the fifties!!!!
We did have long playing records....do you remember?
They seem ancient nowadays, don't they?
So this was a blast from the past....
Have a look at some of the song titles...No 1 Country Hits....
Go on, get yer glasses lassy!
I bet you know some of those tunes.
We were welcomed with a smoothie milkshake..
Popcorn was right on cue...
A mini jukebox set the mood....
How about that cake?
I wondered if it was to be consumed later or was it just decor?
Under the cake stand were twirly lollies.... my hat, those were the days...sorry, I was beginning to feel like a kid again...
I told you these gals know how to lay it on...
But, before we got to the sweet stuff we each had a basket of treats to breakfast on....atop a long playing record charger.
Have a peek inside... and note the serviettes liner please.
How many of you made out in the back seat of a car like that on the serviette....hmmm?
Remember the song "At the Hop?"
A wonderful morning of entertainment and speakers followed a fashion show of the most adorable little kiddies.
We were treated to these desirable morsels of sweetness...
....followed by decadent chocolate mouse
The cake stand had finery of its own, in the form of these little
Take a look...at those shades doll!
Well, by this time it was way passed lunch time.. honestly!
And another cup of freshly brewed coffee was in order.
Accompanied by this!
Goodness but it looked intimating but seductive none the less... so the cake was not just decor after all...
Hmmm... I was not going to manage this ...
So I turned it on its side to see if it looked more manageable, but alas, it seemed to be larger that way...
I did try my best to do it justice as best I could, but in the end had to opt for a "take away"
...along with my goodie bag of toffee and sweet treats.
I had to...it had my name on it!
It was a wonderful day spent for a great cause and I will be sharing some of the other amazing tables over the next few weeks.
So folks, put in another nickle into the Nickelodeon... and while you take a trip down memory lane please leave me a comment of your favourite jukebox song...
Thanks for stopping by.
Live Well and keep those songs rolling
