The kids came over for us to babysit cause their mom had a photography engagement. When they arrived, I asked if they wanted to have a tea party. Well, I always know the answer to that, lol.
This was an impromptu tea party so I just gathered whatever I could in a jiff and brought them out.
The weather in Florida is just getting pleasant so I decided to have the tea on the outdoor deck.
Of course my granddaughter Reese, is always the most excited when it comes to a tea party.
We even got John to join us.
We had English strawberry vanilla tea. It was the kids' choice. They all love it.
I gave the green cup for John to use and as I was pouring the tea, he stopped me and said there is something black inside the cup. I told him not to worry, that it's a bee and it's part of the design, lol.
We had scottie shortbread,
We also had choco wafers.
Reese is always so dainty with her fingers when drinking tea.
Do you see our pool enclosure in the background? Our big shade tree fell on it during Hurricane Irma and half of it came down. It was a total mess! We haven't been able to get it repaired because no screen can be found anywhere, not even on line, except for a few that are inflated in prices so John and I decided to wait.
Guess who else came to join us-the kids' outdoor cat, Bobby.
See the leaning palm tree in the background? Another damage from Irma but it is still alive and we just have to prop it up. We have been so busy cause right now, our bathroom ceiling and roof above it is being repaired. Yep, another hurricane damage.
Our fig tree was uprooted and had to be taken out too.
The tea pot is by 222 Fifth
Here is a better view of the damaged screen. You should have seen it after the hurricane with the huge fallen tree above it with black pool water underneath. I felt so much better after the clean up. Luckily, the tree did not fall on the house.
Thanks again for stopping by. I also appreciate all the hostesses and these parties.
