Tea Party Time!
After a couple months of planning,
Lulu (grand daughter) and I served tea, today.
Lulu wanted to do something special
for her mother, Kimmy.
Kimmy is expecting her fifth child in late May or early June.
This would be a celebration for her.
It was a great way to learn and practice
Lulu sent out invitations to her mother and little sister.
She picked out the china...
She planned the food...
Flowers were purchased. Lulu wanted pink and yellow...
Lulu arrived early to set up and
practice her hostess skills.
This Tea Party was all hers!
We switched up the couch from the living room and
the dining room table.
We strung antique hankies, from the ceiling fan.
Lulu brought over all her handmade,
pot holders. She used them to decorate the table.
Along with some pearl necklaces.
Lulu set the table with everything she delighted in.
Lulu learned that you don't have to
purchase items for a party.
You can use things from around the house.
Kimmy and Ila May were so pleased and excited.
Lulu is helping Ila May
reach for a gluten free cupcake,
strawberries, pineapple, watermelon
and heart shaped candies.
I had Lulu practice her conversational skills.
If there was a lull in the conversation,
Lulu would ask her "ice breaker" questions.
The hankies were a hit,
especially when Lulu turned on the fan!
I wanted Lulu to remember her
first Tea Party.
I gave her this cute figurine as a keepsake.
Linking to Thought of Home Thursday
"That they may teach the younger women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children,
To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands,
that the word of God be not blasphemed."
Titus 2: 4-5
