Are ye’ dancing?

Monday, 23 June 2014

We had a super day for our vintage tea dance yesterday. The sun was shining, the table was set for afternoon tea and all guests turned up ready to dance!

The table was covered in the prettiest fabric, tea lights, flowers and all of my lovely china.

The Overnewton Centre where we held our tea dance wasn’t the prettiest of places so we had to seriously dress it up with fabric, lots of fabric and bunting.

Along with all of my china and linens i decanted all of the chairs from the tearoom to create the right look for the tea dance.

It was a lot of fun styling the venue for the event. I loved arranging the flowers and setting the table.

Dancers Sam & Paul were great teaching the steps to each dance. The crowd wanted more so I don’t think this will be our last tea dance…
