A Sunflower Tea Party

 

A hot July day is the perfect day for a sunflower-themed tea party,
and that's what we did.

 A little watermelon punch cooled us off nicely.  
Recipe at the end of the post.

 The table setting was minimal 
because we ate mostly finger foods.


 Don't you just love sunflowers?

 A little extra decor





Our attempt at making the food look like sunflowers!
 

Two of the little ones made these 
for the party the day before.

The finished craft


At the end of the day, I think all were satisfied and had a good time.  
We talked during lunch about what it means to be a gracious woman.
  Maybe this tea party thing is working!  
Their manners were exquisite, and their insight was--well, 
pretty insightful.

Watermelon punch
8 cups pureed watermelon
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/4 cup lime juice
1/2 cup sugar
ginger ale

Blend watermelon until liquid.  Add remaining ingredients.  Pour into ice trays and freeze until almost solid (about 3 hours).  Remove from ice trays and place in a punch bowl.  Pour ginger ale over the watermelon and break up cubes till slushy.  Serve in punch cups and enjoy!

Today I am linking to these tea parties:

What a lovely, lovely tea. You have arranged your goodies so beautifully. I do love sunflowers but I haven't seen one yet this year so this is a treat to my eyes ;-)

I am new to all of this and have been thoroughly enjoying it. If you have time, I would love to have you come and visit...
