This past Friday, Emily was invited to a little girls tea party! Our hostess did a wonderful job of explaining manners and even practicing them! The lovely tea was held on their screen porch and it was wonderful! The ladies got dressed up and she had dress up hats, shoes and jewelry for them to add!
They got to pour their own "tea" ~ which was actually pink lemonade. I brought the food and after a quick search online could not find any real tips for little girls tea parties. Which, I find shocking - so it must mean that I was in too much of a hurry to really find the info!
Anyway, here is what I did:
Flower peanut butter and honey sandwiches (remember that bread tube?!), flower and butterfly shaped crackers with cheese shaped like flowers, and fruit cups made out of orange "cups" filled with fruit salad. For dessert, we had flower shaped cakes with frosting and sprinkles - I forgot to take a picture of that!
After they were done eating, each got to make a necklace! Then, they blew bubbles and played together. It was a fun time!
Also, our hostess had these lovely favors for each girl - including candy bracelets, a ring pop, pencil, and even their own tea cup!
Thank you, Miss Kelly for such a lovely gathering and for including us!
I got to hold my sweet friend's baby - and she went to sleep on my lap! I love having a baby fall asleep while I am holding her - so peaceful and pure!
