Texas Tea Party

Do you like tea parties? Take a seat and have a cup of virtual tea and tea sandwiches with us. 
I'm two months late posting this special event. Meet Will and Elise my Texas grandchildren. They helped plan the entire party and also helped bake the cookies and make the sandwiches. 

I bought flowers for the party and arranged them in a Portmerion pitcher in anticipation of the tea party. The cookies were baked the day before and a good time was enjoyed by all which included licking the beaters and the bowl!
The day of the event, party sandwiches were made and the table was set.
Everyone was excited as you can see in the pictures. 

I adore my daughter in law's china. Isn't it beautiful?

Being a part of the planning and baking was fun for them.
Elise brought in two vintage fans that were her great grandmothers as part of her contribution to the table decorations.

Their laughter and enjoyment was music to my ears.

My daughter in law, Sarah and their granddaddy or Graddy as they call him joined in the fun too. Granddaddy's Yeti was not a planned part of our decorations. 

This note is a keeper and was so sweet.

See other tea parties over the years below. I hope to have many more! It's not perfection but memories that count.


Alabama tea parties here, here, and here.
I'm already thinking about the tea party I hope we can have for Christmas 2018!
 Sometimes all the grandchildren are together and sometimes we have to have separate parties because they live in different states. 

Living Thankfully,

  1. Bonnie, how I love the tea party you hosted and your grands help plan and execute! They favor you in their looks and I love those spirited ginger features of theirs! I was going to mention your daughter-in-law's china as well - beautiful! Love the name Graddy - too cute, and yes, that note is definitely a keeper. Treasures of love, the event and the memory!

  2. Bonnie, I so enjoyed the tea party. Your grandchildren are beautiful, not to mention their gorgeous hair. I know every moment with them was a treasure for you. And, your daughter-in-law's china is lovely. Special times!

  5. Bonnie, this post has stolen my heart! First things first, Elise and Will are beautiful and handsome with their cute freckles, dimples and their amazing auburn hair. Seeing their faces at the tea party is too adorable for words. I love that overhead shot of your beautiful presentation of cookies, tea sandwiches, your DIL’s china, the lovely floral arrangement, and the treasured fans....perfection! Graddy remind me of Butch, no matter how hard I try, he always want to bring his Yeti to the table. He says it holds more ice tea than the glasses. The letter is so sweet and a keeper for sure. The photos of previous tea parties show how quickly they grow. Wishing you a beautiful weekend sweet friend!
