Pink Tea Party

Is there anything better than a tea party? How about a tea party with little girls?  Last year we made some fancy invites (I’ll add a picture when I find it!), there really is something about kids receiving an invite in the mail that makes them feel special!  I kept it small, just invited 2 friends and their daughters, so we could really enjoy it while keeping it simple.  It was such a fun day, and I know we’ll do this again!  It would also make for a fun Valentine’s Day Tea Party as well.

For an activity, I made some felt crowns for the girls to decorate.I just cut out a crown shape and topstitched 2 together to make them firmer.

I put out some silk flowers, jewels, ribbon, etc for the girls to decorate them with (the adults used a hot glue gun to glue in place for them).

They were pretty happy with their creations!

For the food I made the following: (along with some regular tea sandwiches for us moms!)
PINK FLOATS
A scoop or 2 of vanilla ice cream with strawberry soda

We also had water for the teacups, because you can’t have a tea party without teacups!

PINK DEVILED EGGS
Made just like my usual ones but the egg whites were placed in some tinted water for 10-15 minutes.  I used food coloring, but you could use pretty much anything pink, like beet juice.

PINK PINWHEELS
Cut crusts off bread, spread with strawberry cream cheese, roll up, and slice into pinwheels.
I also made some by rolling out bread with a rolling pin to flatten it, then spreading with raspberry jam, and making pinwheels the same as above.

I didn’t do alot of decorating for it, but me and the girls did make a giant pink pompom (directions here), and I put some pink tulle on the tablecloth.
