Hello friends - happy Sunday!
Yesterday afternoon I went to Miss Havisham's Wedding Feast Tea Party!
St Mary's Church in Higham (just up the road from me) hosts fund raising events on
behalf of the Church Conservation Trust.
My big sister works very hard for the CCT and did an amazing job
preparing a themed Miss Havisham's Wedding Feast.
Just in case any of you are not aware who Miss Havisham is - she features in Dickens' - Great Expectations. At twenty minutes to nine while dressing for her wedding day Miss Havisham receives a letter from her betrothed calling off the wedding (he wasn't at all nice - he was out to swindle her of her riches!)
Humiliated and heartbroken she has all the clocks stopped at the exact point she learns of the betrayal.
She continues to live in her decaying mansion never removing her wedding dress and
leaving a wedding cake uneaten on the table.
I thought it would be nice to share some photos with you, here is the decaying table, cobwebs look so real.
Bouquet of dead flowers...
The uneaten wedding cake (made by my clever sister) the top tier is real (no cobwebs on that!)
and first prize in the raffle!
It comes complete with mice and a wedding ring!
More mice and decay...
A teapot of course!
And 'Miss Havisham' made an appearance too!
I probably should mention our tea was delicious - cakes and plenty of tea
held at the other end of the church!
Well that was something different to craft wasn't it!
Back tomorrow friends.
Hope you are having an enjoyable weekend.
