The week before my wedding some of my lovely friends, including two bridesmaids, engineered a fabulous kitchen tea.
The table was spectacular with lots of delightful party food, and plenty of pink.
Guests were asked to come dressed in pink, as a surprise for me. Yvonne and Kerri outdid themselves, as they usually are not pink, frilly girls! I was thrilled that they went to such a lot of effort.
The party organisers made me put together a cake in 5 mins! The expression on my face here is one of concentration, not disgust . . . honestly! Somehow I got the "cake" in the oven, and it even turned out something like a cake . . . just a pity I forgot the butter! You will notice that some guests are not wearing pink: the message did not get to everyone!
The guests also created a magnificent wedding dress for me. The best newspaper creation ever!
Apparently there is a new trend toward destroying the wedding dress after the day, as it will never be worn again. Personally, I prefer the idea of keeping it for a children's dress up box. However, I was instructed to find a way to destroy the newspaper creation. Rolling on the ground seemed like a good option . . . and it pleased the assembled crowd.
A big thanks to Christina and Margaret for their initiative and fantastic ideas, and to Felicity for assisting them with this in a very servantlike manner.
Felicity, Sherrin Ward, and Christina
