We were lucky enough to have the talented Anni from Milk and Honey Photography capture our afternoon. Here are some of Anni's beautiful photos:
How lucky were we to have the most amazing ombre peach cake (with lemon-layered sponge interior), made by Alison from Alison Lawson Cakes, to match our theme. Read more about Alison's cake here. It wasn't long before we all got chatting, sipping, and consuming the delicious Pat & Stick's Homemade Ice Cream Co. sandwiches (read more here):

The abcd goodie bag was as popular as ever, with lots of handmade goodies, fabric samples, sweet things, and more. See all the goodies here. Anni took some shots of us with our goodies in front of our streamer curtain:

The conversations continued as the sun set lower, and the candles were lit and we finished off that amazing cake...

... and finally we packed up and squirreled away our goodie bags chock-full of handmade goodness.
It was truly a fabulous afternoon. Thank you so much to all the Sydney art, craft and design bloggers who made the afternoon so special (and even frocked up!). A huge thank-you goes to my friend Lisa who patiently waded through my Pinterest boards, sourced, crafted and organised our Saturday Soiree with me. I can't wait until our next event.
