High Tea with a retro twist

This Sunday at Benedict House get retro ready for a high tea with a difference...

Dress inspired by Safari Suits & 70’s, Abba, blow away hair, flairs, platforms, Star Wars, and Cat Stevens. Dress up or ‘hat up’ according to the theme. Participate in quiz on fashions, food, trends and arts on the theme – light hearted fun with giveaways and prizes

Love the idea of the deco-glam high tea. A whole month to decide what to wear too...
