How fun – it’s time for the Mad Tea Party 2014. Just one problem. The timing for this fun tea party came in between my visits to my sweet long distance granddaughters who I usually tea party with. And when I asked my grandsons, who used to love our manly (said with a very deep voice) tea parties,
I discovered they were quite busy skateboarding, nerf-warring, and sprinkler-hopping with their neighborhood buddies.
Even when I tried bribing them with cool disguises, they said they’d “have to take a raincheck.” Something tells me that raincheck may last quite a few years – maybe until they are grown with children or grandchildren of their own and a sweet young lass or grandlass cajoles them into a tea party. I watched my girls do that with their sweet grandpa. ♥♥♥♥
Sigh. What’s a grandma to do with a fun tea party coming up and no grand-volunteers for the moment. Aha! I lucked out. It turns out my grandkids’ family was babysitting an adorable little toddler who thought a tea party would be quite delightful. And so it was – for both of us. A tea party with a toddler. I haven’t enjoyed that in some time!
So off we went to the front porch on a sweet sunlit day full of magical mystery and a cute little plastic indoor outdoor kids tea set to enjoy.
We had fun setting it up.
We enjoyed our faux tea and cookies and we even had a few guests.
Hmmmmm, Donald doesn’t look very happy. Perhaps he needs some quackers to put a smile on his face.
Sun fairies danced around and made the afternoon quite delightful.
When all was done, she was enchanted to discover she got to keep this cute kids toy tea set. A fun treat that is just her size and unbreakable – perfect for a tiny toddler whose company I quite enjoyed.
And now, it’s time to bid you adieu as you continue on your way enjoying tea parties near and far. And who knows, perhaps we shall meet again at your tea party. ♥♥♥♥
Do you have any of your childhood childrens toy tea sets left? How about a piece or two? That’s my situation. I have a china tea pot we turned into a pincushion but it’s packed away and I’m not sure where it is right now. And I have this sweet cupcake platter that went with it. It was perfect for “hosting” one of my favorite Scriptures. We could easily add, The grass withers, the flower fades, [the child grows up and grows old and will someday be on earth no longer – though forever in heaven,] but the Word of Our God stands forever.
I love to share the Word of God with my grandchildren and with all of you. Thank you for joining us here at Children’s Tea Party Sets and Ideas for Spiritual Sunday and Pink Saturday.
Oh how wonderful! It’s that time again. Time for the annual Mad Tea Party 2014. A Fanciful Twist has once again invited us to join in the fun on July 12, 2014 and I can’t wait. But….what shall I write about? Oh dear, oh dear, what shall I do? And if I don’t figure it out soon, I might be late – might be late!!! Hmmmmm…. Should I share a delightful critter tea party? This giraffe would be great for boys AND girls. 🙂
Or perhaps, another fun fairy tea time? My grandkids loved our last one.
Then again, how about a deep dark and lush forest time together? This indoor / outdoor kids toy tea set would be perfect for hiking in a lush and lovely area with a fun tea party for the children at a half way point.
Oooooo – we could have a pool party tea party?
Or how about a tea party with yummy fruit, starting with a Strawberry Shortcake tea set?
Then again, we could go creative with a party for little (or big) girls to paint their own tea set?
Ooooohhhh – what about a Christmas in July tea party with a real tea party set for the children to enjoy and Christmas music playing and the air conditioner on high to help us forget the triple digit temperatures outside?
So many decisions, so little time until this year’s Mad Tea Party on July 12, 2014.
Don’t forget to come back with your kids and grandkids to Children’s Tea Party Sets and Ideas and join in the fun. ♥♥♥♥
