Tea party moments

We have been learning about Colonial times in our homeschool studies and this happened to coincide with Atira purchasing the American Girl Doll, Felicity, who grew up during the revolutionary war. One day during our studies she asked me if she could host a tea party and I told her of course! So, we set off right away and she made invitations on the computer. Mailed them out to three of her dear friends, Jillian, Teigan and Rae Elise. She planned a complete menu which included cucumber and cream cheese sandwiches (of course), peanut butter and honey sandwiches, cut into heart shapes. In addition to this first course was sparkling cider and strawberries dipped in chocolate. Second course consisted of mini heart shaped scones with blackberry jam and the final course was hot chocolate with marshmallows, peanut butter blossom cookies, triple chipper cookies and cupcakes with pink icing and little white daisy sugar flowers on top! The girls chatted and played a memory game and made corn husk dolls. It was a lovely afternoon and Atira is looking forward to doing it again someday! Please, enjoy our pictures of our special day.
