I'm having a little tea party with my grandchildren.
What do you do when the weather looks like this, and rain is predicted every day for a week?
You just have to create your own sunshine. So, I'm going to do that with my grands this weekend. Of course, they always create sunshine for me.
I bought this little Alice in Wonderland tea set at Tuesday Morning when it went on sale a few years ago.
I'm using the tea cup for sugar cubes.
I'll serve cream, and
For this post, I used faux cupcakes, but I'll be serving the real thing when the grands visit.
They'll drink from polka dot cups (Classic Coffee Tea).
They'll stir their tea with our wedding pattern spoons (Towle, Old Master)
Polka dot plates (Bistro Collection by Amici) for cookies and cupcakes. (You know their parents are going to be thrilled when they come home with sugar highs. It's just one of the advantages of being a grandparent.)
I'll serve chocolate covered cherries on this tiered server.
I'd be worried about using such dainty napkins (these came from a long-ago estate sale), but my grandchildren don't ever remember to dab crumbs from their faces or fingers.
I bravely went out in the rain to cut some miniature jonquils for our table.
Remember, if it's raining on you, you just have to create your own sunshine. Thank you for visiting me today.
