Party pooped

The guests have returned home, the kitchen put to rights and now I am pooped. Time for a soak in the tub and an early night. I used an old sheet that was my grandmothers as a table cloth and I think it was much sweeter than the fancy lace table cloth I had envisioned. The girls seemed to be impressed with the menu and didn't leave a lot behind. I was surprised though that they managed to fit in some birthday cake at the end of the day. I guess being a teenager improves the appetite and the metabolism too. Todays menu was : chocolate mousse, cookies and cream slice, white chocolate and macadamia slice, meringues, chocolate coated strawberries, sandwiches, mini meatballs and mini chicken satays. The birthday cake, a pink velvet cake as chosen by Grace. The funny thing about the high-tea, was the distinct lack of tea being consumed. All of the girls chose cold drinks and only my mother had tea.


This was the 'overflow' table. Hope and my mother supped here and I had a quick rest.


This interloper arrived a couple of hours ahead of the party. I'm glad Tim was home today to move him along before everyone arrived. I certainly wasn't dressed for snake wrangling today.

No wonder you are pooped. The table looked fabulous. I'm glad all the young ladies enjoyed themselves. Just as well Tim moved on your snake. That would not have gone down well. Is it a tiger?

What a fabulous spread! That's some serious cooking! The girls would have loved it!
Oh gosh I hate snake season. I spotted my first one down our street a couple of weeks ago...

The table setting looks beautiful and by the sounds of the menu it certainly was a "High Tea" minus the tea LOL.
