The last few weeks have had me and the ladies scouring the charity shops across the plains of west yorkshire for all that is chintz, doillie and fine bone china. I have collected a plethora of novelty tea pots, tea cups, saucers, plates, coffee pots, table cloths and many a crocheted tidbit. The best find so far for the evening is a beautiful hostess trolley the jewel in the crown of the tea dance the maids will just love swaying around the hall offering tasty little cakes and treats to all the beautiful guests (how twee).You may ask why do you need all this china and tableware finery, to this I would reply it is all to add to the decor of the 1940s Charity burlesque tea party I am co-hosting on the 14th of November in the not so sunny vale of Huddersfield.
In addition to this treasure hunt of crockery and fine embroidered linen, I have searched for raffle prizes, tombola items, created wallet ration books, been loaned decorations from B Authentic, and booked a variety of wonderous entertainment for the evening. To add to this there will be stalls at the venue selling vintage wear, jewellery and giftware.
