I’m sorry, again, for not updating as often as I would like. I just got back from the beach, this time Hua Hin! And I’m very sun burnt! I’ll tell you more about the yummilicious food I had there later, but in this post I would like to share with you all some of the pictures from the afternoon tea party I threw on Thai Mother’s Day (Aug 12th.) It was also the day that my sister announced her engagement to all our relatives, so I wanted to make the event extra special and spent hours after hours trying to put things together, despite only having one day to plan and half a day to execute! I didn’t think I would have to pull (almost) an all-nighter so soon after college, but it went smoothly and their smiles made it more that worth it. =)
Since I had very little time, I couldn’t bake everything myself. I only managed to make the apple turnovers, the berries tartlets, the caramelized nuts tart, the chicken sandwiches, and the tuna vol au vent. The rest of the stuff, I was saved by the dear Siam Paragon gourmet floor aka my second home. I bought some scones from the Mandarin Oriental bakery, some pretty little cupcakes from Cupcake Carousel, some cygnes from It’s happened to be a closet, and some cold cuts, and assorted cheeses. I also bought a delicious caramelized onion quiche and assorted macarons from Dusit Thani hotel. Without these places, I wouldn’t have been able to bake everything in time. So, thank you!! haha
After some minor troubles here and there (such as my dog stealing a whole plate of parma ham,) I managed to put everything together with the help of my family just in time for the guests’ arrival. I must say, it was a very close call! Please take a look at the pictures below. Enjoy!
(P.S. Please, if you want to take my pictures out, credit me =) Thanks!)
