Pimms and Needles Vintage Tea Party

As you may or may not know, in September I joined an independent women's group named Pimms and Needles (read about it here).

I covered their launch event a month ago and well, I couldn't wait for the next meeting of the 70 lovely ladies who also joined up! And, last night was the night for when P&N had their first really meeting.

Look at how many people!!!
The theme... A vintage Tea Party! Perfect for yours truly hahahaha!

Here is my fab night during 'Pimms and Needles Vintage Tea Party'...
The night started with everyone making their way towards The Mustard Tree, Hurworth, and buzzing with excitement to find out what the meeting will bring.
At this point I would like to say a massive thank you to all who organised this and to all who baked cakes- it was a fab evening and the cakes tasted soooooo good!
What a way to start off the first real night with a bang, eh?!
Having a vague idea of what to expect due to this meeting being touched upon on at the Launch evening, I for one couldn't wait to get in! 
And I was not disappointed!
Let them eat cake!
Arriving into the building the three lovely ladies from The DooWop Dollies singing beautifully to 1940s (I think) music.
Their voices just fitted perfectly with that genre, it felt like we were back in those days when they use to put on the music, have a sing-along and have a good old chat to each other.
Plus the fact I wanted all of their outfits because they were so pretty!
What a fab way to start the night!

 There was vintage hair and makeup that was just a throwback to the victory rolls and curls of the time.
Hair stylist freelancer Emma Robson created pretty curls in the members hair, giving off a real vintage vibe whilst Rejoy Beauty Specialists provided the makeup service which was 40s inspired with bold lips and lovely eyes, using various different products!

That's a lot of makeup from Rejoy!
Not going to lie, I have always wanted to Lindy Hop. 
Mixed in with a bit of Charleston, it is basically a very cool dance they use to do in that decade. It is full of bounce and energy that was just perfect for this night.
It's on my bucket list, not going to lie 
Based in County Durham, Lindy Jazz founder Joo-Lee Stock hosted the special activity from teaching us simple steps, dancing with music and even having a dance off!!!
Can finally tick that off my list and it's definitely one to get you the 'swing' of things!
Ready.. Set... DANCE!

To end the night off with an even more bigger bang, someone won the raffle, which the prize was two Executive Box tickets to go and see guitar player Joe Bonamassa and blues rock musicians at the Metro Radio Arena courtesy of TFM Radio...
Can we take a moment to think about how good that prize is?!
Can safely say joining Pimms and Needles is one of the best things I have ever done in my 20 years of living.
Cannot wait for the next meeting and what that will bring!

Until next time
