Mad Hatters Tea Party

Our move is almost finished now. We still have a pile of empty boxes waiting to go out, but I think we have almost unpacked everything now. Unfortunately with the move I didn't get my quilt finished for the baby shower on the weekend, but it will (should!) definitely be done by the time the baby arrives in March.

The baby shower / mad hatters tea party was lots of fun. One of the girls organised these gorgeous (and really yummy!) cupcakes from Cupcake Occasion in South Yarra.

I made a bunch of tea wallets to hold our teabags and for people to take home (there is a really simple tutorial here that I used). It only took me a few hours to make 16 of them. I also made a little toy for the baby, but I completely forgot to take a picture of it. Great simple idea though that I will definitely use again.

Everyone also got a sweet teapot tape measure.

I didn't get pictures of all the little details - like tags saying "Eat me" tied to teacups full of lollies or "drink me" on the teapots, teapots full of flowers or silver stands piled with sweet treats, but the effort one particular friend went to was amazing.

I have the best friends and it was great to have a girly afternoon with them.

Oh wow! What a delightful tea party you had going on! I wish I got to see the cuddle-kin in Ink and Spindle fabric- I'm sure it would have looked very cute!
