Tea Party Time | Event Photography
My friend, Caitlyn, has been referred to lately as our personal “events coordinator!” We gals receive an email on Sunday night about the events of the week, where we can schedule what fun actives we can attend with her that week. I must say I LOVE IT! I love to know what is going on and what fun & different things we can do to explore our city and what parties are being hosted. 🙂 Here is a little recap of our Tea Party from Caitlyn’s words (see it on her blog):
There’s an episode of Sex and the City where Carrie decides she’s tired of going to parties, buying presents, and celebrating everyone else’s life events: Weddings, baby showers, house warmings. It seems there are plenty of occasions to celebrate the traditional path through life, but not for those of us who choose the road less traveled. As Carrie says: “Hallmark doesn’t make a ‘congratulations-you-didn’t-marry-the-wrong-guy card’!” So Carrie throws herself a party.
I have a lot of girlfriends out here in Colorado that haven’t necessarily followed the same path as many of our friends and family. But just because our life events aren’t “Hallmark” occasions doesn’t mean we shouldn’t celebrate. In our group of friends, there are girls that are building their careers, following their dreams, and pursing their passions. And they’re doing it on their own. It’s not any harder or any easier or any better than anyone else’s life. It’s just different.
So to celebrate all of our accomplishments, I hosted an afternoon tea party! There were macarons, lemon cake, baked brie pastries, and chicken salad croissants. There was a craft activity. Of course you need a fascinator if you’re going to have a tea party, so with flowers, buttons, foam, and a glue gun we each crafted a hair clip! There was a trivia game – Teatime Jeopardy. The categories were “Victorian England”, “Fashion”, “Desserts”, and “British Literature”. I think I was the person who was most excited about this… but everyone did a great job and enjoyed the game!
It was a beautiful afternoon of laughter and fun. Of celebrating each one of us!
