A Party at the McFarlane's

Hello everyone!

The Spanish branch of Sylvanian Families has organised a contest to celebrate the brand's 35th Anniversary in Facebook and Instagram. They're going to pick five winners that not only will receive some very cool prizes, but will also be considered official ambassadors for the brand in Spain!

I haven't been setting up scenes or writing too much about my Sylvanians lately because of several reasons, but this contest inspired me to do something with the McFarlanes and Beechwood Hall, my first ever family and building respectively, since both are very special to me. And so, I decided to set up some scenes of the family celebrating a party at their home.

Because of lack of space, my Beechwood Hall was sitting empty and closed on the chest of drawers in my bedroom, and I must say that I had fun playing with it once again; I kept the furniture as before and added some more details (thank you Berna for the lovely rugs and extra items!). I even put batteries on it again to enjoy how it looks with them on at night. :) 
I have to say that I had a lot a fun posing the figures and working on my entry. I had missed Arcfield's residents!

You can see my entry on my Instagram, but I also wanted to post the pictures here, in my blog. Hope you enjoy them, even if there isn't an elaborate story this time.

The McFarlanes are very busy preparing the food and drinks they will be serving during the big party they're going to be holding at their home. Mayor Nicholas, his wife Elizabeth and his daughter Annabelle are working very hard so that everything turns out perfect; in the meantime, little Albie plays with his toy hot air balloon.

Everything is finally ready for the party! The big dining room table is full of delicious food and drinks for the guests.

The first ones, the Chocolates, have arrived. Teri Chocolate and Elizabeth have been friends ever since they were young, so they're always happy to see each other.
Seems like the Chocolates have brought a mysterious gift. What could it be?

While the rest of guests arrive, the Chocolate siblings Coco and Freya hang out with the McFarlane children in Annabelle's bedroom.

The Red Panda family is here! Wilbur and Fliss have brought a bottle of their homemade blackcurrant wine for everyone to enjoy at the party.

Everyone has arrived and the party is already at full swing. Everyone's enjoying the delicious food and drinks, and of course, the good company.

What are some of the children doing in the meantime? Oops, seems like the Hunter-Smyth triplets, Gerald, Thomas and Georgina, are jumping on the McFarlanes' bed!

...Oh no, and little ├ôscar Andes is playing with the toilet! 

(fun fact: I wasn't able to add this picture to the contest entry on IG since it's only possible to upload 10 photos at once. Consider it a blog exclusive! :D).

Mystery solved! The box the Chocolates brought contained a delicious homemade cake!

 After a good meal, it's time to rest for a bit. 
"Does anyone want coffee or tea?"

Everyone helps to tidy up, and to end the party, the table and chairs are taken out, the music is turned on, and it's time to dance!

Happy 35th Anniversary to Sylvanian Families! :)

Have a great week-end, everyone!
