Tea with Friends - Tea Party for Little People

Although my post today is about a tea party for little people, there is cake and coffee/tea for us too.
I've made a gingerbread cake and with a dollop of whip cream (I used light Cool Whip) it's a yummy treat.
When our two youngest granddaughters visit, they like to play with my miniature tea set.
So, for Christmas they each received a set similar to mine that came in a case and had fun having tea parties together right away.
Santa brought Emma this wonderful book on tea parties and they referred to it for their fun.
Since I have lots of little tea and garden related things, I thought it would be fun to set up a miniature tea party for all the little people that we know.
A tiny glass garden hat.
Two small watering cans.
A little bird has joined us atop a wee garden pot.
A Royal Albert 'Old Country Roses' tea pot ornament.
And, our tea party all set up.  Of course the tea and sweets are imaginary when we use the miniatures.
Thanks to my tea friends for joining me today.  Sandi at Rose Chintz Cottage is our gracious host and I hope you'll visit her too.

  4. Hi Judith: I saw tiny little tea sets last week in Homesense. I thought at the time they would be a lovely set for little girls or teddys or birds.

  6. Hi Judith, Very charming minature tea sets. My granddaughter has Fancy Nancy books, not sure if she has the tea book. Your gingerbread is making me hungry. Have not had that in years. Nice meeting you.

  10. So sweet!
    I had a tiny china tea set when I was a little girl, and passed it on to my daughter, who at 24, still has it in her bedroom. Someday she'll pass it on to a daughter or niece. I love to introduce little ones to the joy of a tea party, and it sounds like you do too!

  12. Someday I'll have grandbabies to share tea with ;) Even if they are boys I can lure them with gingerbread (like yours...yum ;) and other sweets for a few minutes for tea...right? After three boys of my own...I'd love a little grandaughter...but at this point I'll take my blessings as they come. Thanks for stopping by and visiting my blog. Have a wonderful week, fondly, Roberta
