Princess Tea PartyToday Piper attended a very sweet tea party as part of a summer program she is in this week. Four days of manners, etiquette, ballet & a smidge of tap ended in a tea party with her fellow princess ballerina classmates. For just one hour a day for four days I was astounded how well they did. They even put on a little show for all the Mummys!
Piper made a new little friend, and Mummy did too! We are looking forward to playdates with Lily and her Mommy!TThe place where we had tea was delightful, they made little sandwiches, scones with purple sprinkles, crispie pops, and tea cups filled with pink chamomile tea! There were even flower sandwhiches with strawberry mice for the little ones!It was all very fancy and very very sweet. The teacher Miss Krista was reduced to tears when she recounted a story of her own grandmother setting up a table in the garden when she was little and serving a 'proper tea' to her and teaching her manners for such special occasions! Miss Krista, you are a treasure! Such fun! I wish I'd taken my 'real' camera and not the little stinker I had in my purse!

So cute. This will be one cute thing to do with Sunshine one day. I'm betting Jammer wouldn't care for the tea party.
