I planned this tea party before I left home ( a 6 hour drive away). I packed my butterfly teacups, a pink teapot, and a multicolored tablecloth.The menu was to be whatever seemed good for the weather and / or the busyness of my week there.(Note the chair in the back right made of horseshoes by our youngest son, a farrier.)
When the day of the tea party arrived, it was at least 100 degrees.I almost decided naps in the shade would be the plan for the day but the expectant faces of 4 granddaughters would not allow for wilting.They do very well in the heat so what was my problem? Mint tea, ham & cheese sandwiches, and lots of watermelon were perfect.Plus, pink lemonade, ice water, and a shady porch!
All 4 girls made their own fairy gardens. This is the garden our youngest granddaughter made. She insisted on this dolphin for hers.The girls all painted their own birdhouses and planted and arranged their own gardens.
I love the way each of my grandchildren seem to know what they like and how they want to arrange things when we embark on a project.
The girls moved the fairy gardens to their home, hopefully in a place not too sunny where they will flourish.I know the girls were pretty excited about their gardens, and the tea party. We even had ice cream after we were done planting the fairy gardens. And , no, we did not forget the fairies, they will be in their gardens soon.
