Still a strange mixture of words for me, Santa and picnic, one means Christmas and the other summer… OK, not a odd combination for those born in the southern hemisphere, but for me, the two words still don’t seem to match.
Anyway, we had a picnic a couple of weeks back! We being the WSBN. We’ve now been a group for over a year. It doesn’t seem like it, but we had a first birthday dinner the other week…
I digress, this post is about the picnic, the pretty frocks and the Secret Santa notions game.
We met at the sound shell in the Botanic Gardens. It’s a great place for picnics and we were even entertained by a string quartet.
I can’t believe I didn’t take any photos of the food, I must have been enjoying it too much 🙂 We had sausage rolls, picnic pie, egg and cheese rolls, asparagus rolls, coleslaw, beetroot, followed by strawberries (lots), lemon tarts, forgotten biscuits, brownies, all swallowed down with fizzy grape juice… Phew, I’m full up thinking of it all. 🙂 We certainly know how to create a feast!
The dress code was to wear pretty frocks – do we need encouragement? And there were certainly lots of pretty frocks around, absolutely stunning ladies…
Our Secret Santa was fun, lots of lovely goodies to be had. However, this was not a Secret Santa with the normal rules, these were different. Basically we were encouraged to steal from others if we didn’t like what we opened and liked something else. As you can imagine, there was quite a bit of fighting over some gifts!
