Vintage Tea at Fisherpond

This past Friday The Know Me Love Me Foundation held a vintage tea party at the historic Fisherpond Great House. Fisherpond was the perfect backdrop for the vintage theme and the whole event was enchanting. The KMLM team was made up of a dynamic group of women and it was an honour to work with them. There were a number of tables located throughout the house and outside in the magical gardens each with mix matched china, fabulous flowers by John and savoury and sweet treats by some of the leading restaurants and caterers on the island. One of the definite show stoppers were Frances' cupcakes which are edible pieces of art and are as tasty as they are beautiful. 

The morning to early afternoon were very hectic and shortly before the event started some of us hurried upstairs to get ready in one of Fisherpond's bedrooms which was full of beautiful antique pieces.

The tables were located in cozy nooks, the great room and outside in the garden. One of my favourite spots was this garden table and I love how the sun is shining through the trees in this shot. 

Beautiful menus were designed by Linda and placed on all the tables with the vintage china and a fresh flower. 

Wendy Abed from The Green Monkey Chocolatier and her brightly coloured macaroons were a definite hit. Two of my favourite were the Tiffany Macarons with a cream of coconut ganache and the Salted Caramel. The Green Monkey Chocolatier has an assortment of flavours available which can be mixed and boxed as a great gift, one that I would love to receive.( Just saying! ) .
