Tea Time with Grandkids in the Garden

My daughter Tina, who lives next door to us said she has a shooting (she is a photographer) the following day so could I watch her kids. I asked the kids what they would want to do while at our house and they all responded "TEA PARTY!!! in unison.

And so tea party it is! I had told Reese one time to wear a nice dress with a hat the next time we have a tea party.  And she remembered! She really takes our tea parties seriously.

The boys are on vacation so they were invited too.
The kids helped me set up the table. Right away, Reese said we need a cover for the table. She sure is learning fast, lol. She was also the one who picked which teapot we would use and she chose the Fitz & Floyd with a coccatiel finial.

I had a full size tea cup but I took out smaller ones for the kids but they kept asking for refills. I might as well have used full sized ones for them too.

It was kinda hot cause the sun was on us but we all had fun.

We also had macarons, little ones that I brought all the way from our last trip in Marseilles some oreo cookies and merengue drops.









My tea cup has a lily of the valley pattern

"Indian Tree" demitasse cups for the grands.



Thank you so much for stopping by and to the hostesses
for hosting these fun parties.

Adorable! Now we know who's going to inherit all your pretty china. Hee! I also love how your grandsons joined the tea party. I hope to have tea parties with my godson when he's older. He's only 9 months so I have to wait a few more years.
