Tea for two..or three...or more...

The girl has known since January that she was having a tea party to celebrate turning 4 in style. She gets her mind on something, there is no changing it. For the past few weeks, I have been scouring friends, family and second hand stores in search of all the elements to throw such a party. It was weeks of planning all for a two hour party that came and went so quick!! A BIG Thank you goes out to Miss B, who help set up and host. Fun was had by all, kids and adults alike.

Things I learned this past weekend:

  • Even three and four years old will DEMAND a new dress to wear to a party. It does start young.

  • Someones little girl sounds like Eorye, even when she is happy.

  • That same little girl, really REALLY loves sugar cubes.

  • Miss B is GREAT at hosting a tea party.

  • Miss is very very patient when making little itty bitty sandwiches.

  • Little boys can survive tea parties.

  • All little girls (and boy) are adorable when they come for tea!

  • You can pull off TWO parties in one weekend.

  • My little girl is a great hostess.

  • I would do it all over again, just give me a few weeks to recoup.
