oompa loompa, do-ba-dee-doo,
we've got the perfect location for you.
oompa loompa, do-ba-dee-dee
where you are likely to see a tree.
after a pretty magical time at Willy Wonka's afternoon tea,
we just could NOT get the confectionery wizard out of our brains
luckily for us Kew Gardens are going through a similar obsession
as this easter they're running some pretty spesh chocolate inspired activites
safe to say we booked our tickets pretty soon after finding this out.
we're off to see Mr. Wonka, the wonderful genius of choc
first thing we noticed is that there's a lot of green everywhere
and some pretty impressively scary statues
but you know mostly the green thing
these crazy giant mushrooms had us feeling like
Mr. Wonka had slipped us a shrinking potion!
but what a good excuse for an OOTD
now silly Wonka's chocolate has us all super tiny!
phew okay back to normal now guys
well as normal as two strawberries can get
luckily it was quite a beaut day
so we could sit back and smell the flowers
and boy were there a lot of flowers
like they're not messing about with this whole gardening business
so we just gots be unleashing our inner child
and doing some cheeky log climbing
the main event for us was chocolate decorating
but we were not prepared for the queue. at kew.
lololololololol little bit of punny humour there
the event took place inside teepees
because coachella isn't the only hipster place this weekend
beth attempted to create a strawberry
while emily went for a more artistic floral arrangement
it looks too good to eat
but on second thoughts...
a hop skip and a jump away was the white peaks cafe
where there's a tree!
okay so its not actually a real tree
but there's plenty of them outside, right?
they served scrummy snacks
mini tubs of ice cream
we somehow managed to restrain ourselves and each opted for
a hot chocolate and egg sandwich with apple juice and healthy snacks to share
BECAUSE SHARING IS CARING
next we popped into the plant house
where we really felt like we connected to nature
as we learnt about all our favy ingredients
and how they get from soil to stomach
we popped downstairs to visit the seaweed
and ended up bumping into Marlon
apparently Dory's gone missing
if you hear anything call this hotline number:
can we borrow that water feature for our garden please?
and by borrow we mean have and not give back
today has helped us to not only further our Willa Wonka obsession
but we've also actually managed to soak up some gardening tips
so thanks Kew for a lovely day!
hopefully we'll be seeing you and your greenery again soon x
