Wordless Wednesday…Tea Time!

Wordless Wednesday…Tea Time!


When I was a little girl, I loved having tea parties. We had tea (lemonade) and little finger sandwiches with the crust removed. 



This weekend Mini-me had another one of her tea parties. Her mother (my niece) said that Mini-me had the most fun deciding on a theme (Little Mermaid) and choosing the tableware. 

And the best part…our hostess had a drawing for each of us…tailored to what we like. 


Being a kid again is fun…you should try it!!!

Would you like an adventure now or shall we have our tea first? Peter Pan

Good morning Kathy Streib  I do remember tea parties and my guests were stuffed animals.  The drawings were precious and glad everyone had fun.

Brian England LOL mini-me does not allow boys at her tea parties. (but she always brings enough food for them )

Nina Hollander, Broker we would invite you to ours if you were here. I had fun showing Mini-me how to pour tea from the teapot. 

Leanne Smith one question...did you get to eat your guest's goodies??LOL  I always had my cousins around for tea parties but teddy bears and dolls would make excellent stand-ins.

Wasn't if fun Lawrence "Larry" & Sheila Agranoff. Cell: 631-805-4400 I've always thought there was something civilized in having tea...very calming. 

Carol Williams this one was totally designed by mini-me but yes, we both enjoy entertaining. 

Even better Will Hamm Hmmmm maybe we should suggest that!!!
