Tea Party - Princess Style

Today Princess had her first Tea Party.

2573

Or maybe I should say Punch Party. She donned her apron and we spent the morning in the kitchen making all our last minute goodies. Recipes Here.

2544

Once the food was made we pulled out our favorite serving dishes. See what you can make with a candlestick, fluted plate and a little clear adhesive caulk.

2534

And we pulled out all our favorite tea sets...

2538

and linens.

2537

Put them all together.

2570

Princess got lucky because her Tea Party happened to fall on the same weekend that Grandma came to visit. Lucky because Grandma likes to help clean up all our food making messes.

Then she laid out treats for each of her guests.

2576

And patiently waited for her friends to arrive.

2575

She didn't have to wait long.

2579

The little princess guests also brought their Mommies to keep me company.

2581

The girls and I went all out trying to make a fun little Mommy and Me Tea Party. I don't have special occasion parties very often but I do try to make them really nice when I do. 'Just Because' parties are my favorite. Lea had a tea party when she was six too, and I'm sure that Hope will have one as well.

Now I'm brainstorming a May Day Party - Hmm, does anyone have a May Pole I could borrow?

What a good mommy you are! All that effort is appreciated by your girls and one day they will grow up to be just like you and that's something to be proud of =) Great attention to detail - looks like you remembered everything.

I love tea parties! I have a handful of girlfriends who rotate through my home for tea parties. One of them, in particular, I have known for about twenty years now and her and I do this about twice a month. It's so much fun! I'm sure Princess was totally thrilled!

I love this! What a great mom you are! I never had daughters to do this with so I guess I missed out. Maybe one day I can do this with my granddaughter!

How fun, I love tea parties! I don't get to give none because I don't have girls, but it's a great idea for me to have with my friends. How wonderful, to get together and have a girly tea time party. I will try some of those recipes from Mommy's Blessings even for any occasion or just to have for a fun time. Thanks for sharing your good times.

Oh yeah, Happy Valentine's Day.
