The Forest Town School for Children With Special Needs hosted a Mother-Daughter Tea last Saturday to raise funds for their Occupational Therapy Department.
Naqiyah and the other hostesses each had to set a table for ten and prepare High Tea goodies for their guests at R50 a ticket.
It was a small sum towards a worthy cause and it was heartening to see so many people come together to show their support for the school and its learners.
Each hostess was given the theme ‘Pretty In Pastels’ to interpret as they wanted.
Naqiyah put together a shabby chic tablescape with touches of old-world glamour.
Each of her guests was greeted with a little paper doily rosette to wear and a keepsake jar of white chocolate cookies to take home.
Papercrafted elements by way of the placemats, beverage labels and menus lent textural charm to the table.
Sugar cookies by Allison from Tiny Bite added a sweet finish to each setting.
Mohamed Saleh, a talented young pastry chef created this delightful array of truffles, tortes, sugar spoons, mousses and pavlova roulades for the amusement of our collective palates.
Floral artist Zaheera of Pollen Living Art put together a centerpiece worthy of a royal high tea. Her arrangement showcased coffee roses and tea bush set amid mirrored boxes and pearls.
