JR3madhatters3RESIDENTS of Koorooman House in Leongatha had their own Daffodil Festival activity on Friday afternoon, gathering in the lounge for a mad hatters’ tea party.

Dot Kewming had devoted enjoyable hours polishing some silver tea sets that were on display with fine china including Royal Albert. The silver came up a treat and Dot was pleased with her efforts. Asked what she had used to achieve such a sparkling result, her response was emphatic, “Elbow grease!”

There were big hats, small hats, a pink striped Cheshire cat having a lovely time wiggling her tail and a heroic Dorothy Boscombe who sported the most amazing headwear you’ve ever seen.

The crown was covered in knitted and crocheted cakes, biscuit, serviettes and even a sausage roll with sauce, all topped by a knitted tea pot. The capacious brim was dotted with knitted cups and saucers of varying hues, bobbing around every time Dorothy turned her head. That she kept it on without fuss was the achievement of the afternoon.

The history of tea was detailed and residents and visitors invited to view the tea set display which included many colourful tea towels.
