Last Sunday I went to an event that was billed as ‘afternoon tea with a different’. Let me show you Moonpig Mother’s Day Event.
The thing is with me is that I don’t tend to go to blogger event much anymore. Partly because I feel like an oldie and I’m no longer the hip cool kid on the block, and also partly because I’m quite a shy little thing and I don’t tend to do well in social places.
But when Moonpig invited me for afternoon tea, I put all those issues aside and went in for the cakes. Also with this event, there were a few bloggers I have met before, so it was nice to meet up again and to catch up. Plus, anyone who knows me, will know that I never turn down a chance to have tea and cakes.
The idea for this event was to celebrate Mother’s Day early, so as well as having afternoon tea with your blogger friends, it was also to bring your mum along to enjoy the teas and cakes as well.
I didn’t bring my mum along as mine is enjoying retirement too much. No joke. But that was ok as the event was still enjoyable on my own. I will be celebrating Mother’s Day on the actual main day (March 31th).
The event was based at Moonpig London HQ, and as well as afternoon tea, there were three other activities that we could participate in. These were: cocktail making, flowers arrangement and designing a Mother’s Day card.
Let me explain each activity to you:
This involves making raspberry iced tea. What alcohols this contain to make a raspberry iced tea; I can’t tell you as it involved all kind of mysterious liquors. When it comes to cocktails making I like to add a little bit of this and a little bit of that and mix it all together like I’m such kind of mad scientist. But one thing I have never seen before was pouring cocktail mixtures into a teapot and then pouring it into a glass. At least I know why they called it an iced tea.
This activity was to showcase that Moonpig does flowers delivery and also how to care for your florals. They each gave us a huge bouquet to arrange into a vase. I have never been very good at flowers arranging and caring for them, so it was good to get some tips and advice.
Mother’s Day Card Design:
It wouldn’t be a Moonpig event if you couldn’t design a Mother’s Day card, would it? So you have the option of having your photos done in a photo booth and then to put it onto a card of your choice. After you finish designing it, then you can have it delivered to you, so it is all ready for Mother’s Day.
Let me show you the afternoon tea:
Well, I can safely say I now feel all ready for Mother’s Day. It was an enjoyable afternoon, and as I said earlier, it was nice to catch up with a few bloggers friends. The activities were an excellent idea as it made a break from the usual event where you’re standing around trying to figure out what to do with yourself. Hopefully, I get to do something like this again soon.
