An Edwardian Tea Party

There's nothing like a tea party to get the girls excited about being girls! Our May tea party hosted our 2nd annual Mother/Daughter tea. Oh, it was fun! We made it an Edwardian tea party. Everyone was encouraged to make hats; some even wore costume!
I love tea parties!
The girls and moms had so much fun making their hats.
Some wore Edwardian fascinators. If you don't know
what that is, google Edwardian fascinators!
(I didn't know what they were until my daughter told me.)


The weather was absolutely beautiful. White table linens
adorned the (Sam's Club folding) tables.


We didn't get the delicious lemon pound cake on the table
before the picture was shot. The strawberries and cream
were the accompaniment to the cake.


Moms and daughters

More moms and daughters (and Grandmother )

More moms and daughters.......

The youngest Edwardian lady sporting her fascinator

The loveliest of hats and another fascinator

All but 3 of the young ladies.
(The 3 youngest had already escaped to the play yard!)


Cute, huh?

Sweet girls

Fresh roses on this hat

Fascinating!

And at the close of the tea party, a young Edwardian lady sitting on the lawn sipping her (iced?) tea!

After a devotional (see yesterday's post), cleaning up the kitchen, and seeing the girls off, it was nap time--Big Time!
