Tea Party with Friends

This Tea Party with Friends was originally hosted by Heidi over at Blue Eyed Blessings.
I think the first thing that caught my eye were the abso-stinkin’-lutely cute purse invitations! Not to mention the matching skirts for all the girls! What a fabulous and fun idea. So cute during the party and what better take home gift could you give a little girl? Hmmm…maybe an adorable monogrammed hanging paper cone filled with marshmallow pops!

Have a look, leave a comment, and then hop on over to Heidi’s Blog to see what else she’s got going on!

Enjoy Heidi’s party…..

For Talk About Tuesday, I thought I would talk all about Mikayla’s 3rd birthday party last Friday with friends. We invited 3 of her little girlfriends over ranging in age from 2 1/2 years to 3 1/2 years to join in on the celebration and have a little dress up/tea time party. This was so much fun to plan and I couldn’t wait for Mikayla to enjoy some time with her little girlfriends in honor of her birthday!

I made each of the girls their own little cone filled with marshmallow pops. They ended up looking like roses because I tied them with green ribbon. It was a fun addition to the decor.

My mom made each of the girls these cute little skirts. She claimed that they were super easy and so she whipped them out in one evening! It was her gift to Mikayla’s little friends.

Little goody bags – it was fun to spoil the girls since there were only 4 of them! I also sent the girls home with a boa, necklace, and bracelet.

We played “Pass the Puppy”…kind of like hot potato
It was a bit tough with 3-year olds to get them to actually pass the puppy!
It’s tea time! The girls loved drinking their “tea” (apple juice) and asked for more quite often. The menu consisted of flower-shaped PB & J sandwiches, grapes and strawberries, carrots and cucumbers, mini banana muffins, and crackers.

The girls got a kick out of the tea cups turning a dark pink when the tea was poured inside.
Present time!

Instead of cake or cupakes, I decided to make cookies.

Thanks for visiting and putting up with all the party talk over the last week! I can officially say I am done with all that I had to share.
