Happy New Year! The holidays are over and outside playtimes are rather chilly. That means it’s the perfect time of year for a snowflake tea party, whether there’s any real snow outside or not! So start by grabbing your favorite children and grandchildren and a cute white toy tea set like this Children-Size Tea Cups & Saucers in a traditional and simple white porcelain with a 22K Gold trim,
or, for that matter, a real tea set with snowflakes, like this October Hill Ceramic Snowflake Collection Teapot
which comes with matching tea cups. What cute tea sets to share with our children and grandchildren.
Next, gather up some fun craft supplies for your winter snowflake tea party:
- Construction Paper – white, a variety of shades, or maybe even some cute specialty paper with different shades and designs.
- Markers and/or crayons
Gather the children to a table and have them fold each sheet of paper in half, then in half again, then in half again. Instruct your little ones to take the scissors and cut clips on each of the sides to make cute and very simple snowflakes, like gorgeous creations:
Or, if you have older grandchildren, how about some really fancy snowflakes like these:
They can make their “snow flakes” all white or color them before OR after they have cut them. Then they can use them to decorate their room after their tea party. Or perhaps send one with an “I love you” note attached to a special grandparent or long distance friend.
For the tea party itself, how about straight pretzels dipped in white frosting. You could even use the frosting to glue them into snowflake shapes as fun and tasty snowflake snacks. Or you could use the really yummy, cute, and easy snowflake pretzels from Rold Gold.
And to drink? After all, it is a childrens tea party. How about herb tea like Bigelow Orange and Spice tea, warm apple cider, or my personal favorite – hot chocolate with a white “snowflake” of whipped cream on the top (check out this wonderful sounding recipe). Delicious!!!
A fun and tasty time for all, full of warmth, laughter, and lovely memories to enjoy for years. And very important – don’t forget to take plenty of photos. ♥♥♥♥
P.S. Have a lovely Pink Saturday.
