Tea Party Tuesday , Cookies On A stick For Tea!
Tea Time Tuesday is what I call Tuesdays now-a-days. We are always thinking about the fun time we will have for this day. Our oldest granddaughter chose the tea time recipe and type of tea for the day. Cookie on A Stick ( from the Paula Deen Cookbook for Kids ) and "regular tea with sugar " in the teapot. I brought out a few teacups and let our oldest and youngest granddaughters choose which they would prefer to drink their tea in. I have always felt children can appreciate fine china and lovely place settings every bit as much as adults and can usually be just as trusted with china if taught well when they are young. ( Hey, even adults break china on occasion)
Red Rose Tea in the pot, lemons on the side, with plenty of sugar and milk. Cookies on a stick to eat with tea. CHOCOLATE CHIP Cookies on a stick!
Our oldest Granddaughter got first choice of teacups and she chose this one. She also chose the tea and menu and it was very important to her the lemon was cut to put it on her cup just so.You can see her Mr. Halloween next to the tea cup. She made sure he was able to be part of the whole tea time too.
Youngest Granddaughter chose this cup and saucer. The more I see it and examine it, the more enchanted I am by this set.
and dunked that huge, delicious, chocolate chip cookie on a stick in the milk, ate every bit, then drank the milk too.Tea time Tuesday is what I call this day, but it is also Teacup Tuesday and being hosted by Martha* and Terri*. Lady Katherine* also hosts a Tea Party. Please visit them and the many other wonderful tea parties and you'll also see so many interesting and beautiful tea cups.
