Last year, Once Upon a Tea Leaf hosted its second tea-ki bar social in Maple Ridge’s back alleys. After having so much fun last year, I knew I wanted to attend again this year!
I made a hand lettered chalkboard sign to greet guests as they arrived.
My sister and I dressed as cocktails for the occasion. She’s a pina colada and I think I am a sea breeze LOL.
Guests accessed the party by going through the shop. This back alley party had cocktails, a food truck dinner, live DJ, prizes and games!
The balloon garlands, the flower arrangements, and all the tropical touches made for some fun photo ops.
Our tickets included unlimited non-alcoholic beverages, tea, salsa and chips, 2 cocktails, 3 tacos from Taps & Tacos, and Cremino Gelato.
Proceeds from the event and the silent auction benefited Music Heals’ investment in music therapy for the Ridge Meadows Association for Community Living for individuals with developmental disabilities and their families. My friend Diana even won this raffle prize with $100 worth of lotto tickets!
The weather looked iffy the morning of the event but it turned out to be perfect. We had a great time eating, drinking, and dancing the night away!
