On Thursday 15th November the Wolverhampton Adult Education Service hosted The Hatters Tea Party! In aid of Children in Need. I was very excited to be involved as I got to wear a fascinator and raise money for Children in need all at the same time.
The afternoon started with pots of tea served in vintage china tea pots and cups, dainty sandwiches, homemade scones and cupcakes which were truly delicious! There were then competitions judged by the Mayoress of Wolverhampton Mrs Kath Turner. To start us of was ‘Best self made hat/fascinator’ followed by ‘Best overall hat/fascinator’ then ‘Best dressed’. There were also competitions for ‘Best teapot and teacup’ this was great fun and was great to see lots of wonderful fascinators on show. I was delighted that the overall ‘Best dressed’ was won by Lorraine wearing a KJ Millinery Cocktail fascinator.
There were lots of great prizes donated for the raffle by local businesses including K J Millinery who donated a Fascinator.
Overall it was a fantastic fun filled afternoon with lots of money raised for a great cause. Take a look at some of the photos from the afternoon below.
