Last weekend, I went to a Halloween Tea Party. It was nice.
So cute! The little snack at the top is candied popcorn, and the little witch hat was made of pretzel and chocolate.
The tea was Vanilla-Pumpkin flavored. I don’t like pumpkin flavor. I have never liked it, but I realized a few days before this tea that I have made a grave mistake because there is going to be pumpkin everything at this tea party. Whoops. However, this tea was pretty good, and I didn’t even have to add a ton of sugar to get over the taste. Maybe I do like pumpkin after all?
The treats are the most important part of a tea party. Here, we have garden cucumber and cream cheese sandwich, roast red pepper on striped bread sandwich, a cinnamon ginger scone with Devonshire cream, a spooky pumpkin cake (with apple filling), a sugar cookie and a petite pumpkin (it was an olive baked in cheese!). The only blatantly pumpkin-flavored thing here was the cake, and it was pretty good. I did end up putting extra cream on it. I did not like the sugar cookie, for some reason. Or rather, I ate everything else and was full so I didn’t want to eat it.
I was rushing in the morning, so I wasn’t able to get nice coord shots in my room. However, the weather was nice and we did coord shots outside the tea house. These look okay. I need some black wristcuffs (here I just have a bracelet), and I think a black underskirt would look better too. I thought I had lost enough weight to fit into this dress better, but I don’t like how the bodice looks strained.
The JSK is Krad Lanrete Transilvania Moonlight, and I have the matching headbow/veil. The blouse is the one from Diamond Honey I got earlier this year. Everything else is offbrand.
I had a good time last weekend. However, I am feeling very stressed out about various things in my life. Clobba does have Krad Lanrete’s Dullahan for sale now, but I haven’t looked at it again. I really want it, but I should not buy it. There are actually several taobao dresses I want right now, but holding back. Partially because I am in no position to be spending money on anything for fun, and also partially because I am not happy with how I look.
