Everyone was looking forward to this big event eagerly and counting the days. The excitement mounted but alas disaster struck the day before the party!! Mum came down with a bad bout of stiff neck and could not raise her hand even. However after a lot of massaging and streching and applying ointments today she is able to sit straight without pain. So we decided although we are a little bit late but still the birthday celebrations for Alienor can be extended a little bit longer.
So as soon as the chef came to know that the party was going ahead today he jumped up with glee. Infact he was so happy that he had one too many and started dancing about!
He made one big large bowl of candy and before it came to the table it was suspiciously looking a bit depleted.
Strawberries and cream made some wonderful goodies to eat and arranged them on her table.
there were lots of puddings..
icecreams, cakes and desserts.
Nightingale brought her little flower instruments along to play and sing
Sujii the silk fairy sang a lovely song
The woodland undergrowth fairy queen made her rare appearance to spread her magic.
Exoteeque quickly made himself comfortable and made sure he got the best seat.
Wave the mermaid made it just in time as she had to come on her horse Shore from the deep sea.
Little Pippa was there eagerly waiting for the party to begin.
Infact everyone was looking at the door expectantly and holding their breath when....
they heard the door open slowly and heard the rustle of silk and tinkling of anklets...... at last Apsara the gypsy dancer had arrived to dance for Alienore!
Everyone brought lots and lots of flowers and the whole house was filled with their fragrance.
A wonderful day was had by all.
Hope Alienor was not exhausted by the extended tea party.
I am sure the party is still going on and if you want to join in you can go HERE and get merry.
