Hello and welcome to tea at three with us (said in my most proper British accent). ;)
That's right! We recently had a tea party right in our front yard. I'm not sure I've ever seen the girls so excited, and at supper that night, Zoelle even thanked God for a wonderful afternoon tea party.
|Oops! I forgot to take the hat off this one before the party! :)|
In order to be proper, I asked everyone to please dress in their finest. Zoelle led everyone to our dress up box, and each child picked out the dress they wanted to wear. Then, each child got to choose from the fascinators and hats. This was probably one of the most delightful moments of our tea party as each child was in an over sized hat, with a cute little dress up dress, and big smile of anticipation on their face.
What would a tea party be without tea? The girls helped me ahead of time in preparing sugar, creamer, and the tea pot. We even made it with my favorite tea! Zoelle later told me she didn't really like it except the bottom (which is where all the sugar was). :)
Lastly, we brought out the kids favorite (who am I kidding, it was an adult favorite too), the Cadbury ice cream bars. Yummy! Everyone had four different kinds to choose from: Cadbury Royal Dark, Cadbury English Toffee, Cadbury Caramello, and Cadbury Vanilla Chocolate. I'm pretty certain that each adult and child loved whatever ice cream they got. My favorite is the Caramello.
My hubby even snuck one too and said that he loved the Dark Chocolate as it was rich, yet had that typical Cadbury goodness.
After lots of excitement, hot tea, ice cream treats, and lots of giggles with dress up, it was time to be done. The conclusion: We all want to do afternoon tea and Cadbury bars more often!
