One morning last week, my daughter dropped off my granddaughter, Reese with me while she went jogging. It is very convenient because they only live next door. As soon as they stepped inside the door, I asked Reese what she wanted to do. She said without hesitation, "Tea Party!!" It was 72 degrees and sunny outside, so I said "Why not!.
And so with Reese's help, we gathered our selected tea things on the back porch, I brewed some tea and then we were ready.
With a nice and bright morning, I thought this bee set would be appropriate.
And bunny is ready to welcome spring.
Bee napkin rings
I have some bee salad plates and for an impromptu tea party, I just could not find them. But of course, I located them in the garage all packed up nicely in a bin afterwards. But, I found this pretty springy plate. I think I won it from one of the blog giveaways. Sorry, but I cannot remember who but I thank you, cause it is really pretty and I love it especially the edges.
These bee cups and saucers were perfect. I was so lucky to find them on clearance at Homegoods on one of our travels, and boxed, a set of 2 for $3.99. Scored!!!
Look at the little bee inside the cup! Cute!
I used this dainty tea linen with pretty embroideries for our table topper.
Oreos (Reese's favorite), food for the gods and merengue for our sweets.
When Reese's 2 brothers came home from school and found out we had a tea party, they said "No fair, we had to miss the goodies", lol.
Love this bee set!
Reese is enjoying her raspberry tea, cooled with a little ice.
When we first had a tea party, I taught Reese how to hold the teacup like a lady and she remembered. See how dainty her little fingers are!
Lastly I just want to share a picture of my late blooming Christmas cactus. Yep! It is just blooming right now.
