10 kitchen tea

sunday was my kitchen tea at my future mother in law's house. it was a spectacular afternoon, my friends and family went to SO much effort to help celebrate our marriage and i am so grateful to them all! thanks especially go to Anne, Alice, Hannah, mum and Helen for all the glorious food and decorating - how amazing is the centerpiece on the dining table Anne created?!?

i especially loved the nest with dinosaur egg!

most of this was hand made and tasted out of this world good

Alice even got special C and J cookies made

thanks Helen for making these delicious meringue delights

my friends and family got together to get us the most incredible gift! remember when i talked about this tribecca bed head from bed nest? it was such a great and overwhelming gift (that's Alice and Lucy trying out new bed)

my gorgeous friends Kristin and Jacqui with baby Jackson

the two mums!

Alice and baby Ari (not hers)

Hannah made little take away gifts for the guests of some beautiful macaroon and high tea books and Alice wrote this message on their chalk wall for me...

it really was the most heavenly afternoon and it's only 2 weeks to go before i leave to get married! eek!
