Marie Curie Blooming Great Tea Party

The shy girl hosting a party? Seriously?!
I only went and did it! Yay me!

I was inspired to support Marie Curie’s Blooming Great Tea Party so that they can continue with their work to help people with terminal illnesses and their families.
I cheated a little and bought a few cakes but also got busy in the kitchen making little fairy cakes and jam tarts (‘normal’ and wheat free)

So the morning itself arrived. I woke up oblivious and then remembered… I felt sooooo sick with nerves and wanted to cancel the whole thing and just donate some money myself 🙁
But I didn’t. I want to be a good role model for my children so despite my nerves I headed over to my daughter’s preschool to set up.

These little guys loved making a #cakeface !

So now it’s all over! I had the opportunity to sit and chat with some lovely mums and other members of the community. A big thank you goes to Spring Preschool in Blackwater for helping me to organise this event.
I really enjoyed it so thanks to everyone who supported me by providing cakes or donating money 🙂 I will be handing over £50 to Marie Curie this weekend.
Please support any local Blooming Great Tea Parties (the event runs 23rd-25th June) or donate online. Your money can make a huge difference to those coming to terms with their own mortality or facing the loss of a loved one.

    Such a great cause, and something we can do so easily. Great that you did it. well done. Your cakes look fab too, can’t beat homemade goodies!

  2. Good for you this is brilliant. I remember doing a similar thing at my work and it was so nerve wracking but such a great feeling when you finally do it. #sharingthebloglove
