for my dd"s 5th b-day she wanted a "fancy lady tea party"

I made the invites and purses for all the girls (which of course I forgot to photograph) I also made picture frames that doubled as placecards and cloth napkins. We had finger sandwiches that I cut into butterfly and flower shapes with cookie cutters, fruit salad, tea. lemonade in fancy glasses with heart shaped, strawberry flavored ice cubes, and a variety of tea cookies. My sister made a cake in the shape of a teapot. A good time was had by all. Anyhoo, on to the pics

oh god, it's so adorable! I'm jealous!

How cute! I remember going to a tea party when I was 5, but it wasn't nearly as fancy Smiley

awwwe! That is too cute!
I was hoping my soon-to-be 4 year old wanted a fancy tea party, but she wants an Alice In Wonderland theme instead.

Reminder: There was a tea party in Alice In Wonderland *wink, wink!*

This looked like so much fun! I used to live in Starkville, Mississippi. There was a tea parlor called "Three Generations" (If memory serves.) ran by the coolest woman I have ever met. She did afternoon teas and showers, and tea parties just because. It was so much fun to set aside a day and go out for tea with my friends. You call ahead and schedule a tea time, and she prepares a delicious buffet or a simple menu for you. You could take tea inside, or if weather agreed, you could sit outside on her porch. It was so much fun! Not to mention a cheap way to entertain your friends! Oh I miss those days! Thank you for reminding me of the happy memories! Grin
