I love birthdays! Hold on. I don’t think you’re reading that with enough enthusiam. I really, REALLY looooove birthdays! One special day to show someone just how perfect they are and how thankful you are they were born? Sign me up.
That being said, I was clearly excited for this tea party. When it came to Brooklyn turning three, I knew I wanted to do something special for her for multiple reasons:
- Three is the official age where I feel like they actually know what the heck is going on.
- She finally has friends! Granted they’re all older girls from around the block, but they smother her with love and attention, and what three year old doesn’t live for that?
- We didn’t throw her a party when she was two, and boy, is mom guilt strong.
We had a day filled with fun, flowers, dress up, desserts, and absolutely, positively no tea. Hey, can’t win ’em all. When looking up menus for a tea party, the recipes can use some pretty extravagent ingredients, however, we settled for simple peanut butter & jelly and turkey & cheese sandwiches, lemonade, sparkling cider, and lots & lots of desserts. To complete the party, we set up a fun dress up corner with jewelry and boas galore, and of course a mirror to check out their upgraded outfits.
It really was such a great time, including pretty adorable watching them lift their pinkies up when sipping their paper tea cups.
