Sunday May 29th was Mad Tea Party Day.
The Yourdori Girls have been planning this benefit tea party for Muslimahs United the last two or three months. Even before Christmas it was a glimmer in my eye . . . a vision of teacups and teapots dancing through Wonderland. I had big ideas about what I wanted to make and accomplish, and so did Nancy.
This is the third BIG tea party for me. A couple of years before I met Nancy, some friends and I organized events for about 25 people just as excuse to bake pretty cookies, and pull out all the vintage things we had that never saw the light of day, and of course, we wanted to make new friends. The idea was to create this completely girly setting, the tea party that all of us dreamed of when we were children.
This is Nancy's first BIG tea party. Not that she hasn't worked events before, because she has, but an over the top Wonderland Dream Mad Tea Party was not yet on her resume of accomplishments.
Which made it really easy to cunningly lure her into the idea...
This is not that post.
This post is how amazing, wonderful, and lovely the party was.
Many of the special touches of decorations were made with Canvas Corp Brands Products. One of my favorites was the overflowing bowls of tea bags with black and cream stripe tea tabs instead of plain old white squares. You will be able to see more of what we did with Canvas Corp products in an up coming post on their blog.
I know in the moment, on that day, it really was a Wonderland dream come true. Everyone had a lovely time, with some great conversation and tea thrown in.
Thank you for taking a peek at these first party photos. We have so much more to share, so you simply must come back to explore all of Wonderland!
