Genteel ladies,

Please as suggested, contact the email address with all your questions and queries. I as the local guide have only been asked to direct you to the necessary members who will be running this event. It is not a large event, but I am told it will be creative and a good time will be had by all. The address for the event has not been given as the members are mindful of safety and privacy for the young ladies in the society, and those young women who dain to attend. You can never be too careful in today's times of the 19th and early 20th century. The event will be held during the day, as tea should be drunk only during the daylight hours.

Yours sincerely

Miss Rebel Fortune

OK - as you can tell by my attempt (bad at that) that the Winnowed Spinach Ladies Tea Society - gentleman by appointment - is a group that has been formed to mimic humourously a Ladies Society of the Victorian and early Edwardian era. At this point there is no dress code that I know of, but as stated by Miss Rebel Fortune (yes we have even made up silly names for ourselves) that you should email the email addy given in the notice.

Tally ho and pip pip and give it a bit of welly!

Miss Verity Pride here (aka, mdb, satine, pinkdiamond..) having had some rather serious issues in the past of the slightly scary sort (I will tell you all of a few incidences in person if you like) I'm a little cautious of giving out my phone number and address. There may be a slight change in location too.



We have silly names that combine aspects of the right and proper way to behave as a true lady of the late 19thC but also the women who defied convention and behaved "badly" and did things. Such as Nellie Bly who travelled the world in 72 days.
We embrace everything from dainty tea cups and flower arranging to travel escapades to charity works (bunny collection still needing to find a home). A website shall be forthcoming but I've been very busy this week getting a broader NZ oriented website up and running. Well working, there are still issues of prettification to happen:
http://gzc.glittersweet.com (if you have any links please email at nzcostuming@gmail.com That address will be linked to the site from there.



Oh yes, back on topic I have 4 croquet mallets for the tea party so if someone can get a couple of small wooden balls (though tennis balls might be more amusing) we can play a game of croquet. Which is not at all competitive;)

I'll fail at being lady-like (hahah, when I first typed that, it came out as 'lasy-like') too, but I'm quite curious to attend, and would like to know what kind of dress code is asked of us? I know that it's been said that there isn't one, but what degree of dress is acceptable? EG. Can we just turn up in jeans+t-shirt, or what? XP

Something you'd feel comfortable drinking tea in;) I'm not sure beyond that to be honest! The last event we had this past weekend was in full Victorian regalia and the one after the tea party will be in Victorian sportsgear (I'll be in hunting dress ;) )

So photos from last time:

(flickr is down for me right now but it might be up again soon)

If anyone has loli style or steampunkable clothing as well I think they would be appreciated:) And oohed and ahhed over:)

Oh and if you are able to bring your own tea cup, saucer and small plate that would be excellent as we are collecting pieces to look at, but there will be extra anyway :)

Oh and the tea being brought is loose leaf and of very nice flavours. I love love love the Earl Grey Rose. So lovely. I wonder if they have a violet flavoured tea. Oh the 1001 nights is really lovely too.

The winter dream also sounds lovely.

I'd love to come. :) I'll try and bring along some varieties of loose leaf tea as well! Somehow I feel a day full of good-tasting-caffeine coming on. xD

[goes to RSVP]

Just set up the site for the group, it's not a huge amount yet, but hey I'm tired and need a break from webbing;) Now if I could just figure out a way to purge site stats at the end of each month I'd be happy...

I have made the suggestion that the West Lynn Gardens are actually really lovely. It's close to New Lynn and on a bus route (19- and 18- but I'm sure there could be some help to the transport centre which will get people west and into town easily:)
http://www.westlynngarden.org.nz/
They have a butterfly house too:) I came very close to having my birthday there a few years back.

Also, if you avoid the duckie poo Western Springs is lovely too. Close to the zoo and MOTAT.

Re: Mad Hatting Tea Party
Post By sakuramiyabi. 19/03/08, 11:57 pm

lmao i live along that route

ill post a link to timetables =3



WTF I LIVE RIGHT NEXT TO IT ... I SOOOOOOOOOOOOO DID NOT KNOW THAT >X3

i'll go check it out during the easter holidays if theyre open =3

So about bus routes

This place is 4 stages from the city (i.e. $5.40 each way ... ir you can tough it out and get down at new lynn and walk the rest of the way ... it's about 30 - 40 min max depending how fast you're walking =3)

The best place to get down would be the bus stop on South Lynn Rd itself which is after or just before the Nazarene Church depending which way youre coming from.

If you take Urban Express stop at the stop just before the Nazarene Church
If you take the Stagecoach stop at the stop just after the Nazarene Church

Either way when you get on the bus just say you want to get down at Seabrook Ave and they can put you down =3

the time table --> Green Bay/ Blockhouse Bay Timetable
