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. ♥♥♥♥
