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


  1. Absolutely adorable. Each item was perfect. Lulu is becoming quite the accomplished hostess. I love the little f8gure you gave her. So cute.

  2. What a wonderful idea! It looks like a fun time was had by all. I think more mothers and grandmothers need to step up and become Titus women to the next generations. Entertaining and hospitality are slowly becoming a dying art.

    Thanks for sharing Lulu's precious moment with all of us!

  3. Christine, this is another beautiful example of your extraordinary skills as a grandmother. I loved each photo, each detail of this very special tea party. I think Lulu's handmade potholders are gorgeous paired with the pearls, and all the other things she loves. How could anyone not love what she loves? Please tell Lulu I said "well done". She did a beautiful job. Oh, and the antique hankies are delightful, as is the bunny tea party figurine. How perfect is that! Hugs, Nancy

  4. I would say sweet Lulu has the gift of hospitality! She is a darling girl to plan this for her mommy!
    Hugs to you all....Shirley

  5. Oh Christine, I love that Lulu did her own tea party! She did a great job. It's wonderful she is learning to be a hostess at such a young age.

  6. How absolutely lovely! Such sweet, sweet memories! Dee Dee

  7. My goodness what a precious thing to do with your granddaughter! Absolutely every detail so special with the antique hankies, her handmade potholders, and amazing food and flowers! Oh I am so happy for the treasured memories all of you were able to make at this special occasion!!! Thank you for sharing this lovely tea with us today!!!! :)

  8. This is just precious in so many many ways. Your scripture is right on!! Oh, how priceless. Number 5, my number 5 is now 20 and the first for me to not graduate from home education. When you hear the song "you are going to miss this", I do. I remind my daughter and daughter-in-law, to enjoy this precious time!! You are a great grandmother and your granddaughter did good!!!

  9. Oh what fun you must have all had! Loved the vintage hankies on the fan.

    Wishing you a beautiful weekend ahead...

  10. Your tea party was awesome. I love doing this with my grand daughters but I especially loved all of the little extras you did. Just beautiful.

  11. Make sure you link up this gem on Thoughts of Home on Thursday because it has such lovely images.

  12. Christine, you are a wonderful grandmother! Just think of the memories you made for all the girls on this day. The tea party is so pretty and I love that y'all did invitations and everything. I look forward to doing something like this with grandkids some day.

    Thank you so much for sharing at Thoughts of Home on Thursday.

  13. What a great idea for training and helping your granddaughter to serve tea. Those hankies are a fun idea! The conversational skills training with the question prompts...excellent!
