Today is day 18 of Frocktober guys – not long to go with the frocking up and fundraising. This weekend I am co-hosting an afternoon tea at Jonté Design Studio with a bunch of lovely Perth girl bosses all in the name of Frocktober. Tickets are only $15 and cover food and drinks on the day, but if you need more convincing I thought I’d run through all our gorgeous sponsors so you have a little bit more info on who and what you’ll find on the day!
FOOD & DRINK
Raw food geniuses Roark & Co will be providing the goods on the day in the form of raw, vegan and vegetarian treats. Roark & Co is all about good quality, honest and ethical food that tastes amazing and you’re guaranteed to find something for everyone. You know where you’ll find me at the afternoon tea – at the food table of course! Pop over to their Instagram for more.
If you’re a bit of a sweet tooth don’t fret. The cupcakes will be flowing thanks to Kingdom Cupcakes. If you’ve not tried Kingdom Cupcakes before, you’re in a for a treat. At a recent meeting for the event the gorgeous Deb stopped by to drop us off some sweet treats, and we were seriously amazed by the delicate, and intricate desserts. So heavenly! Get ready to be very happy! Head over to their Instagram for more.
You can’t have an afternoon tea without the perfect brew, and local boutique tea company XO will keep you energised and smiling with their new loose leaf tea bag range. A tea collective like no other, XO showcase a creative world of gourmet loose leaf tea. Started in Perth by two guys who have a passion for tea, they offer a collection of unique teas encompassing herbal, green, black, white and oolong varieties. Perfect as a gift or a daily indulgence the teas are available online and in gourmet stores across Australia, but you’ll be trying it all at the event on Saturday!
And don’t worry, there will be plenty of coffee and champagne on the day too! It’s not a fashionable afternoon tea without bubbles!
ON THE DAY
Shop the latest (and past) collections from Jonté Designs and Jessica Bratich from the comfort of their stunning studio. Check out the new season designs straight of the TPFF runway, with 10% of all purchases going straight to Frocktober. Both ladies will have some amazing sales racks for the event for those of you on a budget too! And some sneaky auction prizes too.
Two of Perth’s top stylists will keep you busy on the day with mini style sessions focusing on sustainable fashion and mixing high end goods with op-shopped pieces to create individual looks for every kind of woman. Malinda from The Style Within and Juvelle from Running In Chanel understand the importance of feeling your best when getting dressed up, and will give you the scoop on how to make that outfit your own. A static model display will also feature a mix of Jonté Designs, Jessica Bratitch and op shop finds to inspire you on the afternoon! The ladies will also be choosing our “best dressed” on the day with prizes for the two fanciest ladies in the room so don’t forget to frock up!
Don’t forget to look your best at the event as local Perth photographer Sita of Precious S2 Photography will be snapping away at all the action. Sita is a whiz with a camera, and as someone who had worked with her in the past, she’s the perfect photographer for the event! “At Precious S2 Photography we believe that all things and all moments in our lives are precious. We love capturing the preciousness of your smiles, memories, styles and creations in our photographs”.
You can’t host a ladies afternoon tea without flowers, and the gorgeous ladies at Floral State have kindly donated some stunning blooms to brighten the room. “The Floral State studio is based in sunny Perth, Western Australia. Our flowers are a reflection of Perth’s beautiful environment & we aim to do the flora justice by styling them in ways that compliment their unique colours & form.” And guess what? Some of our guests will walk out on the day with flowers to take home as spot prizes. Spread the love, and the blooms! So gorgeous.
