Vin­tage tea party in hon­our of Her Majesty

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

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.
