Party no average cuppa

AT FIRST glance it was just a couple of cheerful women enjoying a cuppa with a few friends, but the Fab Hatter's Afternoon Tea Party was far from your average social get-together.

Against a decorated backdrop of vintage fashions, contemporary outfits and festive accessories, the setting was just right to take a break from busy schedules and relish the chance to browse locally made and re-loved clothes.

"The tea party was a fantastic way of letting people know we (flowers & frocks) are here. We had around 50 people come along and try on headpieces and hats for sale," said business co-owner Elissa Carter.

"We hope to sell more before the July races."

Keep an eye out for more fabulous fashions from flowers & frocks in next week's Unwind.
