Once again Elizabeth and I hosted a little tea party for some of her friends. We have been hosting this tea for at least 4 years I think. This year's party was my easiest yet.
Elizabeth invited 5 little girl friends, her little cousin Amelia, and her Grandma H. One little friend couldn't make it so my table was set for 8.
Of course the boys were welcome too, but Cooper had a basketball game, and Ben decided he and Jackson would rather eat at the counter rather than with the girls.
It is not a fancy tablescape, I didn't even use silverware except for little spoons for stirring the "tea" and sugar cubes.
I love white tulips.
We had little cakes and fruit and cookies. I told you it was simple.
Over the years we have thrown away a lot of food. I have learned that they really don't eat that much.
Yummy peppermint pretzels that will make another appearance at the peppermint party on Friday.
A bad picture of some good strawberries.
Elizabeth and 2 friends in their party finery. They were so cute and so excited.
All the girls are here.
After our tea, we always play the same 2 games. Christmas bingo with marshmallow markers and "hot" Rudolph. I have a Rudolph that is in Elizabeth's lap below that plays music that gets progressively faster and then buzzes. Oh how they love to play with this. All my pictures are blurry because there is a lot of very fast Rudolph passing.
And that's it for the pictures. After the games the girls went out to the cleaned playhouse and had a ball. We were blessed with a beautiful day and they had so much fun outside.
After the horrific events of Friday, this party was even more important to me.
I love celebrating Elizabeth. The little girl who made me a grandma:-)
