Tea Party Luncheon
If there is one thing I
really excel at with my kids, it's throwing
often. I guess I have a deep rooted love of little cups and
plates, not to mention tiaras. There is something really therapeutic
about eating bite sized food and pouring apple juice out of a
Ashley and I have put
together the entire shin dig for you, from
and all the party planning details along the way.
Now the very first object of
a child's tea party is setting the
Feather Boas, rings, tiaras,
a little magic
glitter sprinkled into her hair, and there
you have one princess ready to party. Personally, I feel that even an
informal backyard tea party needs glitter, but that's just my opinion.
Next comes the sit down
heart-to-heart with your guests about what I like to call "Princess
Manners". You know, how to say "please pass the sandwiches,"
or "excuse me, may I have some more tea?" It's really amazing
to watch how seriously they
take these commands once that magic glitter is in the picture.
Once the Princesses are
dressed and de-briefed, let them take charge. Help your little
hostess start by pouring everyone
some juice and passing around the first tray of food, but after that, it's
best to stay out of the way.
Any kind of small
finger foods will work, but here are
some ideas to get you started. I've also included a nice
adult version of the strawberry
sandwiches for any bystanders with more sophisticated taste!
