The twin granddaughters turned 4 years old a few weeks ago and their little sister will be 2 years old in a few weeks. Their mother (my daughter) chose a Birthday Tea Party to celebrate all the birthdays.
Y'all know my love of lace tablecloths. A young(ish) salesperson told me recently that lace tablecloths much be a "generational thing" because the only one she ever remembers seeing was at her grandmother's house years ago. Well, thank goodness, the little ladies who attended yesterday's Birthday Tea Party will grow up knowing that sometimes lace tablecloths, floppy hats, sandwiches with the crusts removed and cheese straws will never be a "generational thing" but a wonderful way to spend an afternoon.
The hats were purchased at Dollar Tree and pretty silk flowers were hot glued on the brims. The assorted tea cups and saucers with Salvation Army store finds!
I've had these beautiful teapots, sugar bowls and creamers for years. They were put to excellent use as table decorations to hold beautiful pink carnations and little sweet treats.
The serving table was filled with treasured glassware give to me by friends and family through the years.
Their mother baked the cupcakes and made the white chocolate dipped, sprinkle topped sugar wafers.
Lolly baked the Cheese Straw "Wafers." The recipe will be coming soon.
This serving piece was the birthday girls' great-great grandmother's! And the sandwiches had their mother's recently canned strawberry jam from strawberries the girls picked themselves.
The party guests had their choice of Yellow or Pink Lemonade.
