Lolita Afternoon Tea @ Miyuko ~

This Sunday I suddenly found myself in a small Wonderland, where every tiny detail was carefully planned and the protagonists where all dressed like princesses from a land above the rainbow.

After meeting some of the ladies at the main station we proceeded to Les Gourmandises de Miyuko a small but sugary-sweet café and tearoom for our Lolita Afternoon Tea Event.

I was pretty excited about this event because - unlike "normal" Lolita meetups - it wasn't open to everyone, there was a limited number of places and there were several well known Lolitas coming all the way from Germany for this event plus I didn't know most of the participants until I heard that two of my Swiss blogger friends had also signed up. =D

When we arrived at the café we were handed a pink welcome drink and started chatting outside and getting to know each other while the others were preparing our tables.
Look at the beautifully arranged tea-table and snacks! 

Soon the other half of the guests, the German lolitas, arrived and we started by looking for our seats.
Sara had the smart idea of putting name cards and mixing us thus forcing us to get to know new Lolitas. I sat in a table with two completely stranger German lolitas and we had a great time chatting about German and Swiss dialects and the German Lolita scene.

(edit: I'll be adding another photo with my cherry-sister Kandee Gore soon!)

After taking our seats we started with a small quiz about Germany and Switzerland to test our general knowledge about each other. :)
Then... we finally got to taste the cute small snacks that Sara had prepared for us!
Some treats were heart- and even bow-shaped and everything was created by Sara herself! It was a delicious experience!

There was also a small activity called Montagsmaler, it's kinda like a quiz where you draw a part of an object/concept on a blackboard and other have to guess what it is.
I completely missed this activity because I was in the first group of macaron decoration!
One of my friends from Japanese class also visited us and asked some questions about our views on the Lolita scene and so on for one of her paper.

After (more or less) successfully decorating macarons we went outside to take camwhoring photos in front of the cute café. We took group photos, posed on the tables, laughed at our silly poses and had funny talks.
There was also a contest who made the coolest macaron decoration, the winner received a special goody bag. Towards the end we all got a small goody bag and the German Lolitas had to quickly set off to prevent sitting in traffic on their way home to Germany.

The other two Swiss bloggers and I left the meet up together, strolled some more around downtown Zurich and got to know each other better. I hope we can meet again soon!

Above is a detailed photo of the outfit I was wearing... I'm a sucker for red and I really really like my cherry jumper skirt. In the group photo I'm also wearing a red jacket. 

Thanks to Sara from Miyuko for organizing this wonderful afternoon!
