Birthday Tea

Tiny tables set up for tea

Grammy reads the girls a fun story called, "Granny's Purse."

Fernie makes a lovely little lady!

Kennedy seemed to love the party but her expression says she doesn't know what to think of her hat!

Lindsay is ready to delve into the mini muffins, cheese cubes, carrots, and chocolate kisses!

Alathia's birthday tea was so much fun! All the little girls seemed to enjoy it. It was kind of a new experience for them, even though they spend lots of time playing tea at home. I was racking my brain for craft ideas and I didn't really want to spend a ton of money buying hats from the dollar store to decorate. One day I got to thinking about those paper plates with bows they make brides wear at bridal showers. Ta da! Our Southern Belle Bonnets were born. They had fun decorating the paper plates with various tissue flowers, bows and ribbons that we dug up and hot glued on! Ali actually picked out the colors for her party and chose purple and yellow. At first I thought it was going to look awful, but the fake flowers made it blend well! The tea cups and vases were from the thrift store and the girls each got to take their glass tea cup home in their party bag. It only cost me 20 cents a cup!
