The invitation had said that the party would be an 'Alice In Wonderland Tea party'. According to Jane, they didn't intend that it be a fancy dress occasion, but many people decided that it should be. DH and I wore hats and our neighbour Judy came as the Mad Hatter complete with the price tag on her hat!!!

Jane's friends and her sisters worked behind the scenes to put out a wonderful spread which was replenished throughout the afternoon. I made my old favourite, 'Chocolate Coconut Slice' which apparently didn't last very long on the table; it was all gone in the short time while I was talking to Karl's mum!
Two of the croquet lawns were available for games but as only 4 could play at any one time per green, it was quite competitive to get a game. Most of us caught up with friends and family instead.
Here are some more photos of the afternoon...
