Tea for Two...or Seven

Anna requested a tea party for her birthday. Somehow the summer completely disappeared on us with no real birthday parties for either Anna or Jacob. Finally, things settled down enough (as settled as they ever seem to get!) to schedule a tea party! 

Leah got to spend a few days with us so she could be here for the tea party!! So all three girls had fun getting things ready.

Anna decided she wanted everyone to dress up in play clothes for the party. Great Grandma Mary loaned us her beautiful lace table cloth. We used Great-great Grandma Anna's silver tea service and Great Grandma J's rose tea pot. I have a nice collection of tea cups from over the years so we had plenty. And the best part was that Binga came!! And she brought a beautiful bouquet and a single rose for each girl. So sweet. (I just realized I didn't take a picture of the tea chest with the tea service set up!)

We had a fruit tray with strawberries, kiwi, blueberries, and pineapple, made-from-scratch blueberry muffins, carrot sticks, and cucumber slices. And for dessert we had cupcakes and angel food cake. 

After "tea" the girls decided they wanted to play musical chairs!! The princess gowns came off, so to speak! ;)

It was a lot of fun! The girls played together for a couple of hours until I delivered them home. Thanks, girls, for making Anna's first tea party such a fun time!
