Lovely theme parties from here

It was a busy week leading up to SuperPowerKids tea talk #2 on Primary Success in Life Examination. Organized by the Family Life Ministry of St. James’ Church, the talk was catered for parents whose children are in Primary 6 and preparing for their year-end PSLE examination.

We had an amazing time with the old school theme that we came up with. And an even more amazing time watching the participants being delighted with the table layout, and especially the kachang puteh. Looks like many out there appreciate the return of old, familiar favourites which bring back lots of heart-warming thoughts with regards to our childhood lives.

Here are some photos of the tea talk. Enjoy. 🙂

I woke up this morning with the absolute resolution to start on preparation for SPK Tea Talk #2. I packed and re-packed most of the necessary stuff and lugged it from my home to work.

From the moment I plugged in my laptop, and started work on the tea talk, I nary stopped for a break, except for lunch with two lovely ladies at Great World City (plus a gorgeously delicious bag of Garrett’s Chicago Mix..woot!). By the way, if you’ve never ever eaten Garrett’s popcorn before – you have to try it! Especially the Chicago Mix. It’s the best popcorn ever – caramel and cheese popcorn together in the same bag. Heavens. Anyway, I digress. So, here’s what I have to show for the day:

In-line with the tea talk’s focus on “PSLE”, we decided to go old school with this Sunday’s tea. See those cones in the backdrop? It’s for kacang puteh, an old movie favourite. Honey joys will be another old school simple delight on the table this Sunday, together with a few other noshes to tickle the taste buds.

Speaking of tickling, have you ever been tickled by either your own hair or someone else’s? It’s super irritating isn’t it? But anyhow, that’s not the point. The thing is…in my enthusiasm to cut into circles all my cupcake tags, I cut off a chunk of my own hair. Yep…you read it right – I cut off a chunk of my own hair. I was happily snipping away when I saw a few strands of hair on my table. I picked it up, feeling perplexed and saw to my horror that it was not a few strands, but a chunk! Thank God the damage was not great – I guess that’s the perk of having curly hair – you can’t really tell whether it’s supposed to be long or short. So, I survived, and here are the cupcake tags, a testimony of my hair-raising (or losing) experience.

Am really excited about this Sunday’s tea talk. Meanwhile, it’s preparation and more preparation work. Have a great week wherever you are, whatever you’re doing and may you find true joy and satisfaction always.

As SPK tea talk #2 draws nearer, so does our interest for table settings increases. Here’s a very doable, lovely idea from this amazingly awesome website.

Such pretty ideas for table decorations, weddings, tea parties and what-nots from here. Loving the use of a simple glass bottle with fragile looking white flowers.
