Madame MO’s Tea Party
LMNOP Productions along with Tee Pee Jr. hosted a very special Japanese tea party in Sydney over the weekend to celebrate the arrival of French brand, Madame MO to Australia. Tea party guests made their way to Centennial Park and found us under a colourful canopy of Japanese Koinobori (“koi” means “carp” and “nobori” means “flag”). These pretty flags are placed outside homes in Japan on May 5 to celebrate Children’s Day – to wish boys and girls a lifetime of happiness, prosperity, joy and good health.
Shortly after arriving our guests sat down to learn how to create traditional origami shapes and designs, and sampled a sweet array of Japanese treats flown in from Tokyo, especially for the occasion. And LMNOP regular contributor, Priscilla Nielsen illustrated a cherry blossom branch for each of the kids to decorate using blossom punches and picturesque travel brochures from Japan.
LMNOP Productions and Tee Pee Jr’s Ruth Thomas styled this exquisite event and collaborated with the following creative brands, suppliers and individuals: Photos – Ian MacPherson; Tables, chairs, linens, candy jars – all Munchkin Tables; Cherry Blossom card illustration; Priscilla Nielsen; Cookies - Cookie Couture; Oriental inspired outfits and accessories from Mill & Mia’s 2010 winter collection; Event production by Jenny Lacey.
We’ll show you how to create a Japanese inspired tea party just like this one in an upcoming issue of LMNOP Magazine. Stay tuned!
