First we had a potluck picnic at the end of February. It turned out to be such a lovely day and the food was delicious! I got so many cute photos.

Then for my birthday in March I hosted a tea party at my house. It was a lot of work but I still had fun. Next time I'll try to plan a little less ambitious dishes and accept help when people offer it! :P

In April Kristine and I got to meet the Tallahassee girls at Freecon 7. Everyone was really friendly, thanks for having us!

In July Raegan hosted a summer time tea party. Here's her blog post talking about the details of the party.

And finally we celebrated International Lolita Day at The Baron's Tea House. I got to meet some new faces and our lolita community continues to grow. Here are some pictures I snapped while waiting for everyone to arrive:
|My favorite tea; French Creme Brulee|
|Caramel apple salad|
And then Luella was kind of us to take some photos.
This past year has been wonderful and I hope that our lovely lolita community continues to grow. I really enjoy our meetups together and spending time with my fellow frilly enthusiasts. May 2012 be filled with even more fun.
