Well it seemed the Sunday rolled round very quickly and we met for Brunch at 9.30am.
There was a lovely feast set out catering for various tastes.
Lovely fresh fruit.
Pastries and cakes, croissants and bagals
Scrambled egg and hash browns
Bacon and pancakes
I don't think I have ever had quite such an interesting mix for breakfast!
It as our last chance to enjoy the company of our Sasha friends.
Lots of merriment and chit chat.
All enjoying the breakfast
After breakfast Heidi had arranged a very special surprise for us all.
A beautiful silver charm and bracelet to remember the Festival and also with the possibility to add to for future festivals. (Photo of my bracelet to come)
She also gave extra charms to her helpers....
Here she tells a story about a certain lady and suitcases from last years festival in the UK!
Needless to say the extra charm was indeed a miniature suitcase.
Elliot took charge of pulling out the winning numbers for the helpers raffle.
Amazingly I actually won something!
I never usually win anything in raffles so was so surprised and thrilled to hear my number called out.
Henry got to draw out the number of the UK/Europe Raffle prize which was indeed an honour.
Gayle was the very lucky winner of Charlotte & her World.
She asked Henry to pose with Charlotte and her beautiful blonde girl.
Before Brunch people had been posing their Sasha girls in their beautiful smocked dresses by Mollie Dingham.
First there were five...
Who were then joined by another two girls who seemed somewhat stand-offish or shy.
A few more joined in.
Finn wanted to join in to show off his Millie Dingham smocked jersey.
In the meantime a few more girls had joined the line up.
The girls called Henry over to join them...
He looked up at them in awe...
...all so very beautiful.
Finn calls Millie over to join them.
All the smocking different, lots of lovely colours and patterns.
Just look at these girls, aren't they beautiful and aren't they lucky to have someone has talented as Millie to make them such gorgeous dresses?
A few photos taken in the Atrium before and after brunch and during the week...
Fran's two lovely girls standing with a lovely redhead dungarees girl. Boo's three beautiful babies in their pretty dresses waiting patiently for breakfast.
A lovely Sasha, I can't remember who this girl belonged to. I just loved her dress as well.
Henry was pretty pleased with himself to say hello to many of his friends.
