Cue: The Tea Party.
For the past few years, the ladies in our family have started a high-tea tradition around the holidays and we thought that this would be the best setting to celebrate our mom.
From the hand-created floral arrangements to the colour coordinated cake and macarons, the place looked perfect. Upon receiving any sort of praise from the guests, I ensured every single person that the beauty of the room was all due to my amazing sister. She was the one who planned the entire party down to the very last detail. (Note: I know this makes me sound uninvolved, but this is my sister's area of expertise. I tried to pick a colour for the tea pots and was instantly told that they clash! I helped with the set-up, guest list and put my PR and writing skills to use by having the responsibility of saying a speech).
When it was time for the big unveil my mother was the MOST surprised, surprised party person ever. She even burst into tears. I can't say my eyes were dry either, since I couldn't finish my speech without getting emotional.
It's been said before, but my mother is the greatest woman I know. There is no one whose advice I trust more and spirit I hope to emulate. She's kind, passionate and definitely never boring.
The best kind of woman.
Below are a few snapshots from the party. Enjoy! xx
