Outdoor Tea Party with Grandkids

It's been a while since I had a tea party with the grandkids who live next door. It's been a while too since I blogged. I think I have just been lazy and been goofing off too much. Anyway, they have been bugging me to have one, so I promised we will have one on Saturday when they are off school.  Saturday came and they called so early to find out what time we were having it. They must have really missed our tea parties, lol.

It is finally cooling off somewhat here in Florida so I decided to hold it outside. Reese is always excited to help me pick what tea set to use and I welcome the help very much.

We used a German Villeroy and Boch set in Twist Alea Limone pattern. I added English Whittard of Chelsea's strawberry and vanilla tea in it, Reese's choice. They loved it cause they drank it all.

My tea cups that match the Alea set are in the garage and I was too lazy to dig, instead, I used my Henriot Quimper cups and saucers, that are more easily accessible, since I store them in the dining room china cabinet. I think the colors blend nicely.

Either the cookies were too good or the kids were so hungry cause they disappeared very fast, lol!

Aren't they looking so happy? They are so precious and such good kids!
 My Reese is growing too fast!
 The boys, Brendan and Nathan, are getting bigger too.

We had a great time, I am glad I succumbed to their wishes.
Brendan was looking up cause there was a frog and a lizard on the umbrella pole. I think they were jealous and wanted to join us, lol.


I did not know, John was taking pictures of us.

Thanks for stopping by. I always appreciate your visits. Thanks to our hostesses of these memes.
