Birthday Tiffen

It's been a bit of a while since I last costumed, but that is always a really nice thing in the heat of our Australian summer. There is nothing more unpleasant than sweating into your lovely gowns. That being said, I hosted a regency tiffen for my mum's birthday last weekend. Thankfully indoors with the aircon cranked. It was a lovely and simple afternoon where we all sat around sipping tea and pink lemonade and snacking on the lovely items that I had made. I spend most of Saturday cooking up a storm. And since I only took photos of the food that I had spent so long baking, our menu:
- pistachio macarons
- violet and white chocolate macarons
- buttermilk scones with jam and cream
- lemon tart
- passionfruit biscuits
- strawberry jelly slice
- mini quiche
- egg salad finger sandwiches
- camembert and cranberry finger sandwiches
- roast pumpkin and capsicum finger sandwiches and
- a red velvet cake with cream cheese icing.
It was all incredibly yummy and my mum had a great time, which really was the main point. Again, costumes were pulled out of the cupboard, my Dad forgoing he jacket and my mum trying out one of the new turbans that I gave her for Christmas. I did cave and make a little something new for myself - a turban. But that is more a case of having to do something to cover my still half turquoise hair. All in all though, it was a lovely afternoon.
