Over the last year I have enjoyed being a member of the WI and at the start of the year I decided to move over to Manchester WI. One of the first events I went to was a mad hatters tea party, held in aid of Oxfam and also International Woman’s Day.
Of course there was cake
As well as Alice inspired cupcakes (baked by Karen)
And a fabulous Manchester WI themed cake
There was also some fab headgear
And it wouldn’t be a WI gathering without some crafting (more about what we were doing in a few weeks)
We were also lucky to have a flower arranging demonstration by David Wayman
Karen came away with a gorgeous mini bouquet that she made with the help from David
It was a great day, we even managed to squeeze in a trip to Patisserie Valerie! I hope we managed to raise lots of money from the cake sale and I’m looking forward to more events in the future.
