Last Sunday, The Beaufort Street Network (the talented folks behind The Beaufort Street Festival) presented a decedent afternoon of High Tea and croquet; a fundraiser for the fashion program of this years festival.
Ladys all dressed in their finest frocks and hats mingled in the warm afternoon heat, sipping golden glasses of champagne and learning the fine points of croquet.
Once inside exquisite, mismatched crockery lined long tables elegantly. Lady’s sat, and reduced decadent finger sandwiches, cupcakes and scones until nothing but crumbs remained.
While gossiping and getting to know one another over sweet treats, of a kind items by the likes of Alister Yiap were presented to the tables, statuesque models glided past the tables showcasing local collections by On A Whim, Steph Audino and House of SKYE.
The Beaufort Street Festival is a celebration of all things Beaufort Street, now in its third year, every year is proving to be bigger and better. With over 10,000 people attending last year, this a day to surely not miss.
