Mother Daughter Tea Party

Spring will come.  Spring will come.  That is my mantra!  All this cold and rainy/foggy weather will end, and then we can move on to happier sunny days!  To get everyone thinking ahead -- here is a post on a Mother-Daughter Tea Party that I hosted with my daughter just for fun!  Of course, it would work as a birthday party as well.

This was the table for the daughters...I tied strips of pink tulle to the top of the 2-tiered serving tray.  I also wrapped pink tulle around the edges of each tier using double stick tape.


I added a canopy over the girls' tables.  A little more pink tulle pinned on to the canopy, and...can you see the little flowers hanging from the canopy?  I attached them with a needle and thread, let them hang down and blow in the breeze!


And this was the Mommy table!  See the little tea pot shaped cookies?  I made sugar cookies and used a tea pot shaped cookie cutter.  Easy!  The little cone shaped flower centerpiece  -- I made with floral foam cut into a cone shape, pinned the layered leaves on with straight pins, and then stuck the flower stems in on top of the leaves.  So Fun!


I pulled out all  my lovely crochet doiles to pretty things up!


My neighbor let me borrow her china...oh, and the red roses are from her yard too!....My roses were not cooperating...Of course, she and her daughter came to the party too!  : )




The girls wore their favorite dress or costume!  Fabulous!  Look at those tiaras!  Every girl needs an excuse to wear her tiara!



Our craft activity was to make these lovely tissue paper hats...complete with stickers to decorate them!




I hired two teenage girls to help with manicures and serving tea....They had just as much fun as the little ones!


And, of course, a fabulous fashion show with all the girls!  They all chose either something they brought, or they could choose from my daughter's dress up box.  Sorry about that blurry picture, someone touched the camera lense...probably me...
