Tea Party Birthday…


So many of you commented on how much you loved and missed the idea of little girls tea parties…so I thought I’d share some pictures of my daughters 3rd Birthday Party, oh so many years ago…

This was in my Quail Creek Home. I so loved my tea room!  It was an off limits for play, but anyone was welcome to come and sit quietly and enjoy!

Her Birthday is during the month of December – so we always have to incorporate a whimsical Christmas theme….this room was full of romance!

I purchased this Dove Cage just before the birthday part to go along with the theme of the room!  Here are the birdies in the cage Joey & Jenna

This was the invitees….in their tea party attire!

This tea party began with a craft while we awaited for our guests to show…(she is so intense!)

A book reading of the “Lady Bugs Tea Party” is a must for all tea parties!

Then the tea party began….I believe there is more sugar in that tea cup than tea!

Only the fine china was used & the tea sandwiches & fruits were served!

I know it’s blurry, but please notice the hot pink nail polish – love little fingers like this!

Okay – so if you look carefully on the tree, you can see the teacup ornament?  This was their take home gift – each girl was able to choose one off of my tree & a few tea bags, silk gloves, boa’s & crowns to take home!

Choosing a tea flavor was the most difficult decisions for these little ladies!

Home made pink cake (of course)…for my princess!

This is one of the cutest pictures ever – she really looks like she is the star of the party!

A “Muffy Bear” is the perfect gift for a three old & a tea party!

Funny, those little goodies that make one feel beautiful!

Oh, how delightful! Pictures of my girls when they were that small flashed through my mind - wish I could go back and cuddle and smell their sweetness from that time! Now, we do have tea time - grown ladies sitting together and loving it! Thank you for sharing these wonderful pictures!
Thank you for joining A Return to Loveliness! Delighted!

For some reason, when my oldest granddaughter was born, my interests didn't lie in tea parties and all that goes with them. I was a grams who had dogs and cats who were welcome to join the little girls at play outside on 5 acres. For fun with me, the girls and I danced to "Queen", "Fleetwood Mac and "Moody Blues." It was more of a group dance doing whatever our bodies called us to do. But with the friendship of another grandma, I now am so excited at the thought of tea parties with my great-granddaughter! I am not rushing her to get old enough to hold a cup, but I love the idea of it. Wonderful, sweet photos! Thank you for sharing.

Oh, can I come too please? It looks like so much fun and I would love to choose a teacup from the tree! The pink cake looks yummy too! Those little tykes are all so cute in their little frocks! I bet they all had a ball. Thanks for sharing such precious memories. And thanks for stopping by for tea with me.

Blessings,
Sandi
