The Mad Hatters Tea Party -3pm today!

Sheila and Diana have spent months organizing a 'mad hatters tea party' at Karen's request, as part of a national competition we are entering.... and what a brilliant afternoon we had...lots of cakes and tarts and, tea pots and cake stands and bunting, clocks and playing cards....a real mad hatters tea party, complete with the Queen of Hearts (karen) queen of tarts (mb) doormouse (di) alice (heidi) the knave (hilary) white rabbit (gary)cheshire cat (sarah) and of course the mad hatter herself (sheila) - we were even presented with certificates for our costumes and so too were the residents who helped to make things for the party - marie, marise,eileen, to name a few...

nearly all of the residents attended and we were pleased to have friends and family joining in; there was a raffle, cake sale and some gorgeous mini mad hats to buy... in total the girls raised £80.

i think they deserve first prize for the amazing effort, the creative skill and organization of the event which the residents and guests really enjoyed.

the mad hatters theme was such fun that we intend to follow it through with the spring fayre and summer fayre ...!
