Last weekend, kurasuneand I held our first High Tea Party (outside of a restaurant, hotel or otherwise). It was our first time preparing everything from the food, to decor and presentation. Since it was our first go at it, we decided to keep it small and test out our abilities amongst a small group of the local lolita community (we had a few people who couldn't make it unfortunately but I promised to share photos XD). I won't bog down the post with preparation photos or other things but we will be posting more about it in our blog Wicked Details
First off the Menu:
~ Cucumber and Watercress Sandwiches ~
~ Herbed Egg Salad Criossant Sandwiches ~
~ Salmon Lox, Cream Cheese, Red Onions and Capers on Mini Bagels ~
~ Three Types of Parisian Macarons ~
Chocolate filled with Chocolate Hazelnut
Ginger filled with Lemon Buttercream
Vanilla Scented filled with Berry Compote filling
~ Blackberry Victoria Sandwich Cake ~
~ Vanilla Bean Creme Brulee ~
Served with a variety of teas...
And just to round everything out, photos of us :) (we just got our Wonder Story JSKs in shortly before! Lucky!) Warning...we do like to be silly! And by the time we got around to photos I'd ditched the petti XD (so warm inside the house that day) so only the poof from the built in petti - so please forgive the lack of epic poof of my skirt >.<
And here is everyone!
All in all very much fun was had! The feedback regarding the food and decor was very positive.
