To celebrate becoming NZ citizens we decided to hold a Kiwiana themed, family friendly afternoon tea. It was lots of fun.
Mr Mischief was on decorating committee - we had black balloons and NZ flags practically everywhere the eye could see!
We made fairy bread...
And had pineapple lumps, jet planes, jaffas, cheezels, twisties (all healthy food huh? I promise there was some carrot and celery with hummus!) with black napkins...
There were cheezels and we asked everyone to bring a plate. A lady that G works with brought these awesome hedgehogs with pineapple, cheese and pickled onions on cocktail sticks stuck into half an orange!
We even kiwi-fied the Keep Calm and Carry On art with some black balloons and a cut-out kiwi shape...
We dressed up for the occasion - hubby in his All Blacks top and me in black with a Silver Fern pin (interesting fact about the pin - hubby wore it on his kilt at our wedding as his kilt pin as a nod to our NZ wedding!)
And it wouldn't be a Kiwi party without pavlova. This was a kiwifruit pav. We forgot all about it in the fridge though and only remembered when everyone had gone home - ooops!
We had the Great NZ Songbook playing in the background and the food people brought was great - we had mince pies, kiwi fruits, chocolate fudge, crispy cakes, chips and dip, mallow puffs and a trillion pineapple lumps!
It was a fantastic way to celebrate our new Kiwi status!
