Vintage tea party in honour of Her Majesty
THE FOURTH Denham Brownies honoured the Queen’s birthday by holding a 1920’s style themed party to match the decade of her birth.
Held on Friday (April 22), the party was open to the families and other local girl guide units and was hailed as a tremendous success.
People took part in traditional fun and games, including tiddlywinks, marbles and dominos, and made crowns and decorated cakes with edible royal motifs.
A cocktail bar made royal themed and coloured red, white and blue mocktails, along with a Charleston dance off, a theatre showing period cartoons and films and face painting.
To earn their badges an important guest had to be invited, and this was the new local vicar and his wife from St Mary’s Church, Christoph and Edda.
They told the girls all about the Queen, how she serves God and handed out books called The Servant Queen.
Past Fourth Denham Brownies leaders attended, giving four generations of service, and the girls are sending the Queen a card and photos of the event.
