A Girlie Tea Party
Last Friday our oldest daughter had us all over for a tea party/luncheon. I just have to brag on our girls for a moment-they are both so incredibly talented and they shine when hosting our parties. I love the fact that our granddaughters are being exposed on a regular basis, to fine entertaining and learning proper etiquette for tea and parties. As a child, I never had this type of training or examples set; later on, as an adult, I often watched my dear sister in law-aka sister of my heart host wonderful gatherings.
I always say our girls didn't get their training in being a hostess from me, but from Susan! Love you sis.
Carrie provided white salad plates for the girls to decorate; such fun!
Little Man snoozed until it was lunch time; a perfect solution to a room filled with giggly girls.
We had a lovely lunch of crackers, bread, four different cheeses, carrots, grapes, blackberries, blueberries and tea or hot cider to drink. For dessert, Carrie made Meringues and I brought some gluten free cookies; the girls had cute butterfly decorations with jelly beans to take home.
Our two daughters; not a great location for a photo, but they are both as beautiful inside as they are outside. Carrie is on the right, six months pregnant and still having all of us over-simply amazing. Kim on the left, equally amazing!
Both girls make parties look so easy and beautiful.
They will probably see this-girls I am so proud of you both and so thankful for being given the gift of you!
Joy to you! Noreen & Hunter
