A Tea Party
February 28, 2014 § Leave a comment
Lily’s seventh birthday rolled around this week. I had a wild idea to invite the whole class and their parents to our place for a huge social get-to-know-you/birthday. But….with many family birthdays in two weeks in our extended family, and a market to prepare for, that idea is on hold for a month or so.
Instead, I arranged a tea party for Lily after school on her actual birth day. She loves tea, and she loves my mother’s homemade scones, so the tea party idea, simple and sweet, was perfect.
I raided my mum’s cupboards for fine china. I borrowed her scone recipe. And I bought pink flowers too.
The afternoon was a huge success:
Happy Birthday Lily, my beautiful eldest daughter.
