My Husband "Subvet" says that when our first son "Sonshine" was born the sun rose on our world, when our second son "Gator" was born the sun laughed and when our daughter "Sugars" was born all the flowers bloomed. That says it all.

Princess Tea Party!

Before we party, we must rest....and any old spot will do!!



Well, I was too busy being a Princess to take pictures of the party....so you'll have to trust me it was waaay fun!

Here's the set up.....


First up is our Princess Tea Table.


Fear not, every Princess had a napkin, they were drying when I took pictures! The blue and gold china was my Mother-in-Law's, the white with flowers is my wedding china.

What's a tea party without tea??

Mary Ann was the winner of our Princess Prize....which was this basket and all the tea that was left after the party (there was a LOT left!). Enjoy Mary Ann!!
On the "sideboard" we have our Princess Tea fixings. I borrowed Lori's "Queen" of the Stash tiara for my Princess labels..

The china in the center that looks green with flowers was my mother's.

and of course Princesses can't dirty their hands with a trashcan!!



Other than me, there were 5 Princesses and 4 toddlers (none of whom were mine) in attendance. A bunch of wonderful food and desserts. And one who tried to "crash" the party.....


It was remarked on that the front of my house looked like a Honda Odyssey used car lot! haha.






After everyone left she came back......even though I told her the tiara was too big for her!




If you haven't had a bunch of friends over lately you should! Enjoying the company of a group of friends is food for the spirit.
A big thank you to all the ladies who came to my Princess Tea Party! I enjoyed each of your company enormously!

Love your organization with the little labels!! Hope you had fun breaking out the china. That's quite a crowd you had. Did you mention what kind of bird that was that tried to crash the party?

That looked like a lot of fun! I've had tea parties with my granddaughter, with the best china...but never did it with a group. Great idea!

You ARE a "mighty mom"!

Have you decided on the theme for March yet?

Looks like a great time!

Sounds like it's right up my alley! I drink hot tea almost every day, and sometimes more than once a day.

Where'd the guinea come from???

Lori in South Dakota said...

my dad always says when the women get together he calls it a "guinea party". So that hen thought she was invited!

I'm here this morning from Mary's Writing Nook [I've seen you visit with her a few times when I leave a comment] so----thought I'd pay you a visit this morning.

Wonderful post. So fun to read. Love the china too.

Now, my question is...you're from Texas? Or am I just dreaming that? Oh....and love the 'rest spot' before the party.

Come visit me sometime soon. Today I have a photo of "Sunshine on my shoulder"...near the marina on the Gulf Coast.

And, I'm going to follow you if you don't mind....
