Mother, Daughter, & Dolly Tea
This past Saturday I had the pleasure of helping host a Mother, Daughter, & Dolly Tea with Lori F. Our daughters are in the same class at school and were the gracious hostesses to their classmates and friends. What fun it was to pull out all of the fancy china, serve dainty food, sip from Grandma's teacup, and spend the afternoon being a lady!
Katelyn and Allison welcomed each of their guests at the door and invited them to choose a vintage hat to wear for the afternoon. After we had taken Mother-Daughter photographs, we served our Tea out on the porch: Chicken Salad Sandwiches on Croissants, Mixed Berries with Greek Yogurt, Lemon Tea Cookies, Almond Scones, Vanilla Bean Scones, and Buttermilk Pecan Scones, as well as assorted Teas and Pink Lemonade.
After Tea, the little girls played Bingo and Musical Chairs and then crafted a hair clip for themselves and for their dollies. All too soon, the afternoon ended and it was time to return home. Thank you, each one of you, who helped to make this afternoon a time of sweet fellowship and blessing!
