Oh me, oh my, oh my-o-licious! It’s one of my favorite times of the year! It’s time for the most delectable, delightful, and just adorable Mad Hatter tea party that is annually hosted by A Fanciful Twist who always has the best ideas and decorations and guests and pictures and..You’re Invited to the Annual Mad Tea Party-Join My Grandkids and Me, Won’t You. I canNOT wait.
Hmmmmm, which of the many cute children tea party ideas should I use? After thinking and thinking and looking through so many great ideas, I was irresistibly pulled to work on my own variation of an Alice in Wonderland Mad Hatter tea party table. There are so many cute ideas out there. So, to quote my dear old friend, Winnie the Pool, I’m going to think, think, think….and then meet you back here on Saturday, July 11, 2015, for a delightful time of tea party merriment, fantasy, and fun. Join me, won’t you?

P.P.S. Here’s a hint of what’s to come 🙂
How fun – it’s time for the Mad Tea Party. 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.
