I talk about creative collaborations a bit. I like them. I love when someone has a fabulous idea that draws creative folks to work together. I’ve been involved in a few creative collaborations lately, and one of them being the Biggest Vintage Afternoon Tea held at Leaf Bean Machine in Perth.
I was fortunate to be asked to take photographs at this wonderful event to raise money for the National Breast Cancer Foundation. The Biggest Vintage Afternoon Tea was initiated by Fleur Cassidy, founder and owner of Leaf Bean Machine (producers of fantastic Karvan Coffee might I add), and soon enough a group of creative small business owners around Perth became involved.
This collaboration included the likes of Leaf Bean Machine, Littlesweet Baking, Made by Marnee, Me & Mabel, florist Kay Crowhurst (did you see that cute little blue teapot? I wanted to smuggle it out with me!), Kookery, The Lettuce Shop, Clay & Clasp, Breastique Art, and Bubbler, all offering their time and products for this great cause. It’s amazing to see such generosity, I was so very proud to be a part of it.
Tables were adorned with vintage linen, gorgeous floral designs, delectable canapés, macarons, cupcakes and meringues. Drinks were flowing, lovely ladies (and one kind gentleman who brought his mother along) were mingling, prizes were being won and proceeds were generously donated. It’s so inspiring to see people come together and partake in an event created purely to help others.
What a day!
