Tea Party with the girls

The other day, the girls asked me if we could have a tea party.  I told them we could do it when Jade got home from dance.  We had a little tea party with Ivy's little Ikea tea set.  We had girl scout cookies and hot chocolate.  The girls loved it so much that they asked that we have another tea party but with one of my real tea sets.  I picked the tea set that my Aunt Carole gave me years ago.  We had cake (that the girls decorated) and more hot chocolate.  The girls were excited about doing it in the dining room.  It is something that we will be doing again.  In fact they have a list of little friends that they want to invite.

During the tea party, Jade told me that I needed to teach the girls manner/etiquette rules while we have the party.  It was the perfect time to do it, and since I've been able to use it as reminders.

You've been waiting to do this since you were a little girl! Time flies, but a Laura Ashley tea set never goes out of style. This sounds like a perfect mother/daughters activity.
