miniature tea set

My grandchildren and I had such a delightful time with our cute childs tea sets

Welcome to Part 3 of our Mad Hatter Tea Party Extraordinaire 2012. We had a great time picking out our two cute kids toy tea sets. Then came the Mad Hatter game that was so much fun! And now? The tea party itself!

The older grandchildren each took a colored cup, with the boys going for the bright red and yellow cups and the girls happily claiming the pink and green. The younger children were even more thrilled to use the teensy tiny pieces of the miniature Disney Princess toy tea set.

A delightful time was had by all children and grandmothers at our Mad Hatters Tea Party Extraordinaire for boys and girls alike
We added “tea” to the pots (fruit juice, in our case), and fish crackers to the plates (a delicacy beloved by all of them) and nibbled away with delight while I snapped even more photos.

A joyful time was had by all the guests in complete costume, including a sweet princess, a cute cheerleader, a rugged FBI agent, an adorable penguin, and more.

The children loved the cheerleading fun for our Mad Hatter Tea Party complete with cute kids toy tea sets

At the end of this fun tea party for boys and girls, my grandchildren gave a big cheer when they heard the gladsome announcement that all the pieces of each of the cute kids toy tea sets were THEIRS to KEEP!  Then we adjourned from the table and moved to the living room to enjoy Disney’s Alice in Wonderland. A fun way to end our Mad Hatter Tea Party Extraordinaire 2012.

I can’t wait till Christmastime when they discover a lovely photo book creation that I’m preparing for them full of the best photos of our special tea party together, along with a fun little story to go along with it. Isn’t that a terrific way to enjoy the moment, then treasure the sweet memories even more in the years to come – for all of us.

A delightful chance to use cute kids toy tea sets for the Mad Tea Party

Welcome back! I’m so glad you’re here to discover just exactly what my grandkids and I ended up doing with our new toy tea sets for the Mad Tea Party at A Fanciful Twist on Saturday, July 28.

My cute grand children loved these two cute kids toy tea sets

I decided to make this a “Mad Hatter and Other Accessories” tea party for girls AND boys. That way, all the grandkids in our family could help me celebrate this year’s Mad Tea Party.

And this granddaughter arrived to our little girls tea party via bubbles - I think I may spy some fairies in the bubbles - do you

I went to the Dollar Tree and bought one or two each of a wide variety of fun items like a patriotic hat, princess tiaras, transformer party hats, flower hair clips, a princess scepter and tutu, a scientist’s magnifying glass, an FBI equipment kit, an alligator head “hat,” a microphone, a megaphone, and more!

Fun goodies for the children made a delightful prelude to our Mad Hatter Tea Party for boys and girls

When it was party time, I spread all the items out on the table and explained the rules of our “party game.” Each time I said “Mad Hatter,” all the kids hurried over to pick out 1-4 items to wear. Then I gave a camera to one grandchild – rotating turns each time – and we both snapped merrily away, capturing such fun photo poses.

They had such a delightful time. It was one of the favorite games that we’ve ever played, was enjoyed by all for well over an hour, and I suspect it will become an annual tradition. After all the grandchildren had enjoyed a wide variety of hat and costume fun, and we’d snapped hundreds of photos with the digital camera, it was time for:

I had been trying to think of some fun and special tea party ideas for my grandkids and me but life has been so busy, I hadn’t had the time to really focus on it.

Love this Alice in Wonderland kitchen clock - so cute for a Mad Hatter Tea Party Extraordinaire 2012

Then I spotted some fun and new-to-me kids toy tea sets at Walmart. They were so cute I just had to buy them. I especially loved the colors in this set. It was so bright and cheerful! Best of all, the colors in these tea sets are great for both little girls and boys.
