Foreword: This is a ,for the most part, fun party event. Anyone who knows the bride or groom or their families is welcome to come along, but it's being held in an open location anyway. It will be a short-post, non-ordered, rapid-fire type thread... which basically means, post when you think it's suitable for your character/s to do so, you don't have to bunch them in one post, but may do so if you wish, and there's no pressure for long posts, even a paragraph or two for a character is fine, you can post as quickly and often as you like, no having to wait for a post order. Feel free in the first post, to do a little background for their Easter day prior to arriving, but they'll have Easter activities in the party too. Note: There will be a part of the event, where every attending character will be affected by a spell for a brief time. They will not be harmed or forced to do anything, aside from agreed upon characters, but I'm just letting you all know. It is part of a mini-plot, and also involves the Sollozzo plot a bit. The theme is Wonderland/Fairytale Enjoy! * * * * * It had been, for the most part, a typical Easter morning, the children had got up early and run around excited for a few moments, until they realised that they couldn't find any chocolate goodies. In fact, there were no goodies. What was this?? They'd asked their mother, who had solemnly looked them in the eyes and informed them that sadly... the Easter Bunny had been hit by a car, and Easter had been cancelled... forever. She hadn't quite expected just how upset the kids would get, minus Lorelei who hadn't fallen for the ruse, and so she had caved on her April Fool's trick on them, and told them where they could find their goodies. And so they'd all pigged out on chocolate and had some family fun in the morning, before then preparing for the real event. The party that... was really just a party to celebrate the fact that she and Viktor weren't getting married yet... still. It didn't matter to Jezebel. It was a great excuse for one, and she'd decided on dressing as the Queen of Hearts, because what better costume could there possibly be for her on her day? Despite the irony of it all. Victoria Reserve had been chosen simply because it was spacious, outdoors, plenty of space for games and an egg hunt. And besides, she didn't even have to do the decorations. By the time the family had arrived there, the triplets wearing adorable mouse costumes to match each other, and Lorelei deciding to be the one and only Alice herself, Thomas and Timothy had created a veritable Wonderland within what almost looked like a hedge maze, but was really just a hedge border that was maze-like only for a couple of levels. In the centre of it was a full Wonderland tea party setting, huge and colourful and glorious, and Jezebel almost cried at the sight of it. The party getting underway as others arrived, Jez could barely contain herself as she began to greet people.
Having managed to make the place significantly more clean and orderly with the help of Alex, Teddy smiled at their success. F3 was in tip-top shape, in fact, it was probably in the best shape it had been in decades. Quite beside himself, he told Alex, "Seems like we're ship-shape, mate. Now we just have to get everything together." He smiled even wider after saying this because this was indeed the easy part. After spending the previous weekend mending the classroom and this whole day gathering bits and pieces like the speakers, setting up the music and the soundproofing charms, and making sure that all of the decorations were in place, getting the food and beverages out of the cooler they had levitating alongside them on the way there, seemed a simple feat. Teddy made several complicated wand movements and suddenly the lid to the cooler popped off and the food and beverages magicked themselves into their proper places. "Now that this is done all we have to do is check on the billywigs to make sure they are alright and then wait for people to show up," he thought aloud to Alex. So, he went over to the formerly terrifying cupboard they magically repaired and opened its door revealing three jars with one billywig in each of them. They seemed a bit displeased, but not nearly as much as they were before. Closing the cabinet, he turned to Alex, who seemed to be working with the sound system. "I think we've properly set everything up, all we need now is our guests and some fun music. How is that coming along?" They worked really hard to put together the best playlist for the party and Teddy wanted to be sure that it would end up being played so that everyone could enjoy it. It seemed like everything was coming together. This was definitely going to be a party to get them through the term, that was for sure.
