I first heard about the concept of a kitchen tea when living in Melbourne. It’s meant to be the ‘the civilised sedate version of a hen’s party’. Of course, nothing involving Tricia could ever truly be sedate, but it seemed like a good premise for a pre-wedding get-together in the daytime.

A party like this is only as cool as the people in it, and I’m glad to be friends with this crazy bunch
