EVENTS: Omani Girl Tea Party

The invitations were home-made and came with complimentary tea favors
One event that two OPNO blog contributer's recently attended was a small private Omani girl's (English-style) tea party in Mabaela. This is pretty normal for Omani women and all, to plan get-togethers with other women in the privacy of their own homes so that no one need wear abaya or shaylas. At these kind of things they usually serves some sweets and Omani tea and coffee. Which is nothing too foreign to women from outside Omani culture;).
What we wore: Forever21 peplum polka-dots and H&M chiffon pleated black skirt with a vintage charm bracelet & below: a blouse, peplum skirt and blazer, all Zara:
Location was: a friend's private home with a number of her personal friends and family.
These kinds of things are always about the people you are with, and the food:
 Sweets above, and cucumber (and mint!) sandwiches below:
 And, literally my childhood in a bowl: fresh raspberries with whipped cream (and strawberries for those less discerning pallettes):

I do not know why but I enjoy making all the small sandwiches for a party. Tuna is my favorit :p. though I know that would send one opno girl running for the hills. Inshallah you will get to go to more tea party's.

Boxie: Didn't anyone old school tell you tune is simply not polite because of the smell it leaves on the breath? Salmon, though is fine with the OPNO you are talking about, so long as she doesn't need to eat it lol.

A Writer: I can still taste the raspberries!

Umm Alawi: That'd be so great!

I dislike salmon sandwiches. I just like to eat it smoked. If you add cucumber and celery it does not smell as bad on the breath. Though I know it's still a no go for you.

Inshallah see you then ummعlawi
