Cream cakes and Earl Grey for charity

IT was cloche hats, feather boa’s and beads all the way, when around 60 ‘flappers’ with appropriate bodyguards, attended a ‘Roaring Twenties’ charity tea party, at the Lowery Restaurant in San Jaime, situated on the Moraira-Calpe coast road.

Organised to raise funds for the Javea based dog sanctuary APASA, guests were treated to a tea party bulging with plates of dainty triangular sandwiches, tiers of naughty but nice cakes, oozing with rich cream and a massive selection of teas ranging from Earl Grey to Jasmine and English Breakfast, served in china teapots with matching cups and saucers.

After that, it was no-holds-barred as some of the less ladylike guests, were galvanised into flapping their beads and flipping their ankles in the latest ‘Speakeasy’ dance craze, The Charleston.
