My 2 years old twin granddaughters love to play tea party, probably because I taught them early on about Tea Parties =)
For their first birthday, as a gift, I made for them a Tea Party Gift Basket with:
a pink gingham table cloth and napkins set
a tea set
a two-tier cupcake stand with 8 pretend cupcakes
My Very First Tea Party & My Very First Book of Manners books.
I had been thinking of one day to make their afternoon snack time into a real tea party.

I started the Tea Party planning:
First, I made a two tiered serving tray out of two very pretty plastic plates and a plastic candlestick, from the 99c Store.
Then, I made the table cloth, napkins and napkins rings. The fabrics were from my fabric bin, it was very easy and fast to add the lace trim to the table cloth. The napkins rings were their baby headbands, that I just cut it and sew it back together to make napkin rings.

I decided that Friday was the perfect day for their Tea Party. While they were taking their nap, I baked sugar cookies, orange mini cupcakes, biscuits and made some little chicken salad sandwiches.  The biscuits were filled with Ropa Vieja de Pollo (Ropa Vieja - literally old clothes in Spanish- a traditional Cuban recipe of thinly shredded chicken simmered with tomatoes, red bell pepper, onion and green olives in a tomato wine sauce). I also made Pistachio Pudding, served in plastic cups with half of a Maraschino cherry topping.



The girls have a great time, they were so excited when they saw their little table all set up and I got lovely pictures of the two of them smiling and eating at the Tea Table.
