Tea Party Fun
"Come, let us have some tea and
continue to talk about happy things"
There was a very jolly tea party this week. Three little people and three grownup people sat around the table, sipped tea and munched on tea time treats.
There were egg salad sandwiches and cucumber sandwiches, neither of them a hit with the younger crowd. Crescent rolls with ham and cheese went down much better, along with the tomato/basil leaf/mozzarella picks.
Little Miss A: I don't like the green stuff.
Little Miss S: I do.
Little Miss A: Is that just because green is your favorite color?
The scones with whipped cream and cherry jam were a big hit all around.
There's a wonderful thrift store in Oak Bay Village and I poked around in it one day this week. I brought home two teacups and one mug. One little miss's favorite color is indeed green and I found the teacup above, in palest green with pink roses.
The second tea cup has a pale blue interior - another miss's favorite color. Both teacups are by Foley, made in England. No pattern names were given.
The girls were very careful with their teacups.
For the sole male at the table, this Bunnykins mug seemed appropriate. He did very well drinking his milk with a spot of tea from it.
It was a sunny time, indeed! I can foresee many more tea parties.
