Elegant birthday party suits Bella to a tea

WITH three older brothers, Isabella (or Bella to her friends) McAskill is a bit of a tomboy but loves her cup of tea.

With her 11th birthday approaching, Bella decided she wanted a party which included her favourite beverage.

A visit to the Coffee Pozzee at Biggenden raised the suggestion of a high

tea.

Bella was set, she invited six of her friends to enjoy a cuppa along with finger food and act like a lady.

Mum Kate said she thought Bella had started a new trend among her friends.

"I don't know if all of them were tea drinkers but there was lots of milk and sugar flowing," she said.

"Most of the girls had nothing less than two cups each."

And what do young ladies do after a high tea?

Play dolls?

Definitely not - they took off their party masks and put on their hats and went outside and played soccer, piggy in the middle and red rover.
