Summer Tea Parties

Hello friends! As many of you know, every three months my daughters and their daughters host a tea party for all the girls. It has been a wonderful way to teach the girls how to entertain and how to be hospitable and godly. Each tea party is actually a luncheon and when you have 11 of us, it is learning to be relaxed, well organized and gracious; generally with a different theme. So this month, Kim and her girls planned a luncheon around a Fairy Garden theme. When Fairy Garden parties first started, about 8 years ago, we ran everywhere looking for decorations. Now they are easily found on Amazon; it is so easy that way and cheaper too.
If you look closely at the far left hand corner you can see a off white silk flower with a doll attached~the sister of my heart gave us all pins like this one Christmas.  Kim utilizes hers on a regular basis.
Carrie and her oldest; the years are flying by!

All the little goodies Kim got for each girls Fairy Garden.
Each of the girls made individual ones that can be taken home and put in the wooden box that Kim made for them.

We had a wonderful lunch and incredible desserts made by Carries girls.  After making their Fairy Gardens, the girls had time to play.  Such fun, such great memories being made as well as great training in hospitality.  Can't wait to watch the girls grow up and be so relaxed having others in their homes.
I hope you have a great day.  I've got some hand work to do and tonight have a new ladies Bible Study starting with the gals from our church-just can't wait.
Blessings on your afternoon.
