Poppet Party!

Yay, last night was the 2 year anniversary/Christmas party at my shop poppet.
Despite my nerves at hosting such an event I think everything went a-ok!
The change rooms were bustling with activity as everyone tried on their favourite items.
(how cute is the above photo....happy smiling customers makes my heart swoon)

Everyone seemed to enjoy the sangria and pimms served up by the lovely lorna and serita.
And the snack table was well worked over, my favourite was bo-peeps home-made hommus,
and as expected the honey-joys were a big hit.

There was a lovely turnout of friends, regular customers, and new faces.
It was wonderful that some of Melbournes finest bloggers could come.
Esme and the laneway, Bo-peeps adventures and Susan of Spin-Spin.....
it was great to see you all again.
and I also got to meet the delightful Lady Melbourne, Super Kawaii Mama and Vintage Verve.
Thanks to all for coming and sharing this special occasion with me.

In all the flurry and excitement of the evening its natural that I forgot something.

The Best Dressed Award
and the winner is........

The charming Katie! (left)

There are 3 reasons she stole the show
1. It takes a special kinda lady to rock the nautical theme so very completely.
2. Her entire outfit (minus the shoes) was purchased from we know she has taste :)
3. The look wasn't complete until she rifled through the dress-up draw and put on her favourite wig.....and if that's not a sign of a great ensemble then what is???
(the next time you pop in you'll get a bottle of delicious wine, yay)

Thanks again to all who attended and helped out. I hope you all had fun!
