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,
8 cups pureed watermelon
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/4 cup lime juice
1/2 cup sugar
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!
