if you have little girls in your family, or you just want to throw a tea party.. everyone wants it to be successful. well my mom has a check list and many tea party books for assurance when the guests start to come.
the first thing that comes out is the lace table cloth and doilys — and then the china.
the theme was celebrating SUMMER so the food menu was as follows: strawberries, pineapple, cheese, grilled cheese, cucumber and creme cheese sandwiches (in flower and butterfly shapes), salad, and 3 different types of cookies: little school boy cookies, shortbread cookies, and meringue.
the best part of a tea party is the people you spend it with. when my aunt and all my cousins come down my mom makes it a point to have a tea party and it has been a fun tradition — so much so thats all my little cousin talks before they come!
those memories will never be forgotten and i love all that tea parties express.. the family ties, the classy table, the good food, the chic china, and the colorful flowers and faces around the table.
