I just realised that I haven't blogged about another super fun tea party event I went to. Nearly a month ago. I swear sometimes I have no brain. Anyway, on Sunday May 29th, it was the Summer Tales Boutique summer tea party (they are bi-annual). Babs had been kind enough to buy all the tickets in advance, and we had paid her back in cashy monies :)
Normally I would have taken the train to Berchem and gone the rest of the way with Babs in her car, but thanks to the NMBS strike that screwed the trains that day, Bert had to drive me to Agnes' house and pick me back up in the evening. Luckily he was willing to do it, HAIL BERT (best husband right there!)!

Mdina arrived at the same time as I did (she came by bike), and everyone else got ready at Agnes' flat. I say everyone else because as usual I arrived ready :)
We picked up Lora at Berchem station (where her bf Tom had dropped her off) and went on our way to Katie's venue :)
Where we arrived a little early so we profitted of the extra time to take photos :)

I wrote a full review of the Sparkly Stars at Summer Sky (as the party was called) tea party for the next issue of BCM, so I'm not going to repeat myself. I will say that we had TONS of fun, and I hope I can attend the winter tea party as well :)
Not that I didn't take photos during the tea party of course, I took loads :)

The shop was also open during the tea party. I fronted a pair of dolly wink lashes for Gaëtane, which Bert then ended up paying for as he didn't have a birthday present for her yet. Should have taken more money, because I kinda do still regret not getting one of those amazing black doll head brooches. Even though it's probably for the best, because I wouldn't wear it nearly enough to justify spending money on it.

Haha yeah, you'd think we'd have stuffed ourselves to the brim with that tea party food but now. Still room for Burger King.
It's kinda a really daft tradition we started years ago and never let go of haha (mostly because we don't have Burger King in Belgium).
