The girls loved the intimate setting and Becca's fancy suggestions. There was a lot of giggling going on.
Next the girls got all fancied up for the tea party. The invitations requested them to come in their best fancy dress, which they did. We moved Stella's vanity outside so Becca could display all the makeup and perfume.
Then she brought all her fun accessories like long pearl necklaces, flower hats, white gloves, rings, purses, boas, sashes. They also got to decorate wooden fans.
After the girls looked fancy and were eager to have the tea party! But first they did a little mini fashion show, and I got individual pictures of each girl striking a pose.
I thought it was a hoot because they all looked like little old ladies chatting away like long-time friends and of course using proper table manners.
Becca did all the food. Tea-size ham and cheese sandwiches, peanut butter and jelly in filo dough shells, fruit skewers, chocolate-cover strawberries and cream puffs. All bite-size. Becca suggested serving lemonade in the tea pots and putting red water in the creamers and sugar cubes in the sugar jar. This was a huge hit because the girls would pour the red water into their yellow lemonade and it would turn into pink lemonade. Sugar cubes to sweeten it up a little more.
The girls did not want the tea party to end, but alas we brought out the cake.
And sang Miss Stella a happy birthday.
Phew! That was a fun party, but I'm so glad it's over. I couldn't have done it without Becca! If you have any questions, let me know. And if you live in the DC area and need a party place for your little girl, check out Tea with Mrs. B. I highly recommend it!
