The Patio of The Grounds of Alexandria is an oasis within a garden sanctuary and was a flawless backdrop for Jessica’s Kitchen Tea.

‘The space provided a perfect platform to create a memorable event in a beautiful setting that welcomed my guests from both sides of the family,’ said Jessica.

The garden is fresh, light, enveloped in greenery and oozes rustic charm – this was used to inspire the styling of the event, which featured wooden design elements, naked cakes and a pop of colour to contrast the green accents.

Given that Jessica is a teacher, books also played a major part in the table styling. She also gave her guests homemade thank you candles, individually labeled with their initials.

As for the games? Some not-so-typical kitchen tea games were on the cards, to help keep guests engaged and excited.

‘My bridesmaids created a range of “Minute to win it” games, based around kitchen utensils and home wares. The guests absolutely loved the brilliance of the “not so typical” feel of the day and said that the games were a huge ice-breaker!’ said Jessica.RC_Shower_JessicasKitchenTea_01.jpg RC_Shower_JessicasKitchenTea_09.jpg RC_Shower_JessicasKitchenTea_08.jpg RC_Shower_JessicasKitchenTea_07.jpg RC_Shower_JessicasKitchenTea_06.jpg RC_Shower_JessicasKitchenTea_05.jpg RC_Shower_JessicasKitchenTea_04.jpg RC_Shower_JessicasKitchenTea_03.jpg RC_Shower_JessicasKitchenTea_02.jpgRC_Shower_JessicasKitchenTea_10.jpg RC_Shower_JessicasKitchenTea_14.jpg RC_Shower_JessicasKitchenTea_13.jpg RC_Shower_JessicasKitchenTea_12.jpg RC_Shower_JessicasKitchenTea_11.jpgRC_Shower_JessicasKitchenTea_15.jpg RC_Shower_JessicasKitchenTea_19.jpg RC_Shower_JessicasKitchenTea_18.jpg RC_Shower_JessicasKitchenTea_17.jpg RC_Shower_JessicasKitchenTea_16.jpgRC_Shower_JessicasKitchenTea_20.jpg RC_Shower_JessicasKitchenTea_24.jpg RC_Shower_JessicasKitchenTea_23.jpg RC_Shower_JessicasKitchenTea_22.jpg RC_Shower_JessicasKitchenTea_21.jpgRC_Shower_JessicasKitchenTea_25.jpg RC_Shower_JessicasKitchenTea_28.jpg RC_Shower_JessicasKitchenTea_27.jpg RC_Shower_JessicasKitchenTea_26.jpg RC_Shower_JessicasKitchenTea_29.jpg
