My Friend Roula who I have known for 20 years is getting married and on Sunday her sister + family + friends (it really was a team effort) threw her a Kitchen Tea. I expected that it would be a small party with 20 or so people, some sausage rolls and bacons and eggs...I couldn't have been more wrong!
When I arrived at Vivian's house my jaw just dropped!! The whole double garage had been transformed, colour spilled from every corner and balloons flooded the ceiling. The detail was amazing! from the personalised lollies to the carefully folded napkins that looked like cocktail glasses (the amount of time that all this must have taken).
And then I spotted the food....
The entree platters, the fruit punch
Oh, did I mention the fruit and cake for the TWO chocolate fountains?!?
There were a lot of games and everyone had a great laugh! the champagne glasses with the floating strawberry was a big hit.
Then there was dessert....
Sunday Afternoon - High Tea at the Swiss Hotel
I've never been to a high tea and I didn't know quite what to expect, but when Helen mentioned buffet I just assumed that there would be a plethora of food (more like a lunch). Don't get me wrong, there is plenty to choose from but it really is an afternoon tea where there are a few finger sandwiches to choose from and a lot of sweets. Even with such a big dessert selection one can only consume that much sugar.

Friday Night Triva - "Hands for Maz"
The sister of one of the girls that I work with is battling cancer, it's been extra hard on everyone because she is the mother of 2 very young kids. To show our support we participated in a fundraising Trivia night held at St Patricks Sutherland. The turnout was massive with over 200 people turning up. I think that a lot of money was raised, a soccerball with the sigantures of all the Soccerroos sold for $1500 (if only I had money) it was really great to see a community pull together like that.
We thought that we were pretty good with trivia but the questions were hard (unless you were a child of the 50's!). In the end Jacky and I conceded that we are pretty crap at Trivia and if it wasn't for my team we would have easily come last.
