Wow it’s November already..I really can’t believe how quickly the year has gone by for me this year. I guess we all say that every year but this year it really has.
Now I have been a bit slack by not sharing how my High Tea Fundraiser for the McGrath Foundation went. The quilts sold straight away so I was pleased with that and then I just had to focus on getting the day happening.
Here is a pic of the lovely Shar from Le Decorateur styling up the back deck area of my house. We wanted to turn it into something special.
And I think we succeeded. Everyone drank from vintage tea cups collected from all around the place and enjoyed the pretty cakes and food served up on vintage platters among vintage lace tablecloths.
The beautiful floral works were donated by Shar who created gorgeous displays in vintage cake tins and teapots. People ended up buying them and taking them home at the end of the day.
She did such a great job and is definitely in the right field. If you live in the Illawarra she does do styling and decorating workshops.
The girls enjoying the get together with me and testing out my gorgeous pastel teacups. And below Campbell was the only little man..he told me I had to share my girl party with him cause he does love a party..just a little disappointed that no candles were involved. but i’m sure the lollies made up for that.
So in the end we all had a fantastic day , we had some games and raffles and in the end I was amazed to raise just over $900 on the day. I was quite stunned..as added with the previously donated money and the sale of my quilts it came to a total of over $1560. People were so generous.
Everyone loved the styling and was already looking forward to next year so we will be doing it all again but thinking even bigger.
I have had a very busy month with Alphabet Monkey and thinking about where we are headed for the future as well as trying to get out some new designs. I hope to have some more for you soon.
