little girls tea party


Planning a fun Little Girl Tea Party for the Mad Tea Party 2010I’m so excited!
It’s that special time of year again. You and I have been invited to join in on the fun of the annual Mad Tea Party being hosted by A Fanciful Twist. Last year, I attended with my post, Children’s Tea Party Sets and Ideas Is Enjoying a Touch of Grandma Madcap Fun and Grandchildren Glee 2010. But what to do this year? That was the question.

I considered various pink tea sets for children like this adorable Fisher Price childrens tea set for a little girls tea party. Would you believe, it’s educational! It helps you teach your little baby about numbers, shapes, opposites, manners, greetings and more. It even plays music. How fun. But it’s not quite what I was looking for. So I kept looking…

Adorable pink childrens tea sets for little girlsNow here’s a sweet and slightly more elegant older childrens tea set – isn’t it lovely? Delicate pink. Fine china. It’s only a two-piece setting but you can buy more pieces. Because it is breakable, it is for children 8 and up and becoming hard to find. It’s definitely closer to what I was thinking of for this special little girls tea party, but not quite….

I love this older girls tea party set - its a special childrens pink china tea set

Ahhh, now this is just what I was looking for. Already a favorite of mine, it’s a bit nicer for the older childrens tea party ideas but it’s not one of the breakable toy tea sets. In fact, it’s made of tin – so it’s a cute, pink, retro-style childrens tea set that all my grandkids can enjoy, from the older girls on down to the tiniest, and none have to fear breaking pieces. Perfect for grandmas like me with oodles of cute grandkids who are almost all three years old and up (which are the perfect ages for this delightful kids tea set.)

The tray in this set is 9-1/2″ x 6-1/4.” Besides the tray, there are 4 plates, 4 cups and saucers, and a teapot with a lid. Since I have so many grandkids, I’ll probably use two of these tin toy tea sets. If we have any extras, the girls’ dollies will gladly share with them.

♥♥♥

Now that I have the childrens tea set picked out, I know what my “decor” will be – flowers and fairies! And won’t that be a thrill for my little granddaughters, as they do love them both. All kinds of them.

Staring with these sweet pink tulips to go with the adorable pink children tin tea sets, and some scrumptious goodies. What more could little girls want for their tea party ideas?

Of course, we need to add some yummies, like these delightful, delicious, and delectable cupcakes in their cute cupcake holder.

Lovely cupcakes go wonderfully with our kids toy tea sets - tiny slices will fit nicely on the platesAnd who are some of the fairies who will be joining my cute granddaughters for this little girls tea party? Why some of their adorable and very sturdy Schleich enchanted fairies, of course! Isn’t she cute?

And now, it’s time for the grandchildren to come!

“Bring on those cute flowered childrens tea sets. I’m all ready grandma.”

Childrens tea sets are so much fun to have and to use. Like this adorable childrens tin tea set from Alex:

Little Girls heart tin tea party setLittle Girls heart tin tea party set

Isn’t that a sweet childs tin tea set for our special little girl? It comes with 16 pieces and its own heart-decorated storage box. I do love a cute vintage kids tin tea set, don’t you?

And the best fun of all is to use a cute kids tea set like this for a little girls tea party. But after the tea is all gone, and the yummy cookies have all been eaten, what are the children to do? As I’ve learned from hard experience, tea party ideas are best decided on BEFORE the children arrive. Planning is essential. Of course, they could just go outside and play, but sometimes we like to do something special. And, oh my, I just found the cutest set that will make for so much tea party fun and such sweet friend and family memories.

My Toy Box is featuring an Alex Paint Porcelain Party set for ages 8 and up with five (it says six but that includes the lid for the jewel box) special items for the children to paint and bake.

Decorating these fun Paint Porcelain projects makes for fun tea party ideas for a little or big girls tea party

Won’t the children have fun painting their own special item to take home with them to remember this very special little girls tea party?

They can pick from a heart plate and tea cup:

a sweet jewelry box with a lid

Any little girl at your little girls tea party would love this adorable jewelry box to hold her special treasures

or a tea mug.

This cute mug would make a delightful tea cup for a little girls tea party for years to come

This is like going to that very nice (and fairly expensive) pottery store with ALL the little girls, only you can do this at home much easier and have a complete tea party as well. Not to mention a lovely opportunity for plenty of photos and friend and family memories.

Any way you look at it, your little girl and her friends will have a delightful tea party time with a sweet childrens tea set and some fun tea party painting. Now those are tea party ideas to enjoy!

The time has come-to talk of many things-of a little boy tea party and set and a little girls tea party and childrens tea set - of fairies and fun and things.jpg

In the book, Through the Looking Glass, by Lewis Carrol, which is another story about the famous Alice and her Wonderland, there is a poem called The Walrus and the Carpenter. It has a verse I love to quote, with slight changes each time to make it appropriate to each new situation. It seemed especially perfect for this wonderfully sweet, mad, mysterious moment in time:

“The time has come,” the Walrus said,

“To talk of many things:

Of shoes–and ships–and sealing-wax–

Of a little boys tea party

With a mismatched childrens tea set and things…

I must say, I have had such a delightful time over the past few weeks, visiting grandchildren near and far, having one little boys or girls tea party after another, and snapping photos like you wouldn’t believe! I think I’ve taken more pictures in the last month than I have all year long – both for our family album and for this, my Childrens Tea Party Sets and Ideas “Touch of Grandma Madcap Fun and Grandchildren Glee 2010.” It’s been great, and the grandchildren and I have created so many special memories in the process. That, of course, is the most important part of it all.

Kids Toy Tea Sets otherwise known as Childrens Tea Party Sets and Ideas is joining in the fun at the Mad Tea Party 2010 at A Fanciful Twist

However, this being the time for the Mad Tea Party 2010 at A Fanciful Twist, it does behoove us to say many thanks to A Fanciful Twist for this very fun time, and share some of the delight with all of you, although, after several hours of cutting, pasting, fixing, editing, writing, and rearranging, there’s so so so many more pictures. I can tell we’ll be having fun for months to come. But for now, without further adieu…

The fun started earlier this week with a peaceful, quiet Sweet Tea Sunday. Then we enjoyed a vibrantly red childrens tea party with a bright red tea set for Rednesday. And now, the official moment we’ve been looking forward to since we read the fun invitation from A Fanciful Twist for the Mad Tea Party 2010, and it begins with my little grandsons. They went on a busy tea treasure hunt and found all sorts of intriguing creatures who wanted to join us for a little boys tea party with a little boys mismatched tea set…

There was the mysterious tea cup and tea pot, complete with fuzzy moustache…

Followed by the cheerful dinosaurs…

What little boys tea party and tea set would be complete without inviting the dinosaur family to join in the celebration

And don’t forget Ms. Frog! I think she thinks she’s late…

Ms Frog came to our childrens tea party to enjoy the little boy mismatched tea setNot to mention…our special guest, Ms. Gingerbread troll toy doll…

A cute gingerbread troll doll sent herself as a postcard in order to visit the tea party and loved the childrens tea setsSo much fun, so much laughter, so many special memories. But it was time to bid the boys ta ta, for now. Not for long but…

And once again…

“The time has come,” the Walrus said,

“To talk of many things:

Of shoes–and ships–and sealing-wax–

Of a little girls tea party or two

With childrens tea sets and things…

It was now time to move on to a new locale. I joined up with Fairy Princess Penelope…

Ladybug fairies came to drink from adorable childrens tea sets

and Fair Princess Purplopia and their entire fairy family…

Lavendar butterfly fairies visited and enjoyed tea in the cute childrens tea set too

..to travel to my granddaughters to explore their favorite childrens tea sets and party ideas….

First it was a kids Pooh Bear toy tea set…

With a somewhat happy Eeyore…

Then, my granddaughters and I heard from the royal animals and their great leader…

These wanderers brought news of the little girls tea party complete with adorable childrens tea sets

They informed us it was time for one of their delightful princess tea parties, complete with a childrens princess tea set…

We musn’t forget the royal tea party etiquette, lovely ball gowns, and the proper attire, from the crowns

To the royal slippers…

Fairy princesses of all sizes came to our little girls tea party

And plenty of guests to go all around! They had so much fun, they couldn’t wait til after the party to send us a copy of the photo they took – they emailed it to us in the midst of the fun!

Fun childrens tea party ideas can include simple dancing games

My favorite guest, by far, was this cheerful fellow, busy balancing his childrens tea set pieces very carefully and minding all his tea party etiquette “Ps and Qs.”

I think this big bear was my favorite guest at our little girls  tea party and his etiquette was impeccable

There was so much more my grandchildren and I wanted to do, but one last time…

“The time has come,” the Walrus said,

“To talk of many things:

Of shoes–and ships–and sealing-wax–

Of washing up the childrens tea set cups and saucers

And putting them all away,

Of sleepily sharing with mums and dads

The fun and special memories of each and every day

But someday soon, we’ll do it again

And, ohhhh, the fun it will be
