Saturday was a special day, as Essi's parents hosted a memorial teaparty for her. We were told it was Essi's dream to host a teaparty for lolitas, but she never had enough time to do it - unfortunately Essi died of cancer the 8th September 2013. So I helped Essi's parents and gathered some fellow lolitas to attend to this party. I was glad to be of some help - Essi was a wonderful person, she was talented, and always so kind to everyone, and I feel deeply sorry that she is no longer here with us.
The teaparty was absolutely wonderful. Essi's parents' house was simply beautiful, and almost every piece of furniture was painted and decorated by Essi. They had also baked so many delicious treats for us. I was very happy to be able to be a part of it, even though at the same time I felt sad for Essi. It almost felt like Essi was present, she could have been just in the next room... All in all, I think this teaparty was a beautiful way of remembering Essi and hounouring her memory.
I wore my new Juliette & Justine dress for the occasion. (My friend's little papillon Pomppis was photobombing all the pictures...)
Hat, pearls - second hand
Blouse - H&M
Dress - Juliette & Justine
Tights - Primark
Shoes - can't remember
And then some pictures of the party. Hanna and Susanna wanted a friend picture. ♥
Here you can see some of the beautiful decoration of their house.
It was also possible to purchase some of Essis remaining Essin maailma jewelry. It was also possible to buy some of Essi's clothes, accessories and so on, that she hadn't worn much or at all.
And here's some food pictures. They tasted as delicious as they look.
I did buy some things at the party. Now I'm considering if I should make a post about them or not...
