Craft parties with afternoon tea

October 29, 2013

The Menders know that a good hen loves her afternoon tea and there’s scarcely a craft hen party goes by when we’re not in an adorable tea salon like Metro-deco in Brighton or Tea Party in Tufnell Park sampling gorgeous delights from a crammed cake tier plate.

Small but perfectly formed – corsages at Drink Shop & Do

July 29, 2011

Last weekend’s corsage hen at Drink Shop & Do might never have happened. The chief organiser sadly had to cancel her place at the makedomend table due to a period of bed rest preparing for the arrival of a very important person in September! We quickly put a goody-bag aside so she can clip and […]

The theme was mainly blues so the […]
