Tea Party Today (unaffiliated)

We had a little party.

We had a little fun.

& of course, did a little show-tune dancing.

To eat? Egg salad, pb&j, pb&mallow cream & pb&nutella sandwiches cut into shapes, blueberry lemon scones for authenticity, raspberry tea with mango puree and seltzer, veggies, fruit salad with plucots & basil (yum), and good company.

I took the opportunity to discuss good hostessing with Naomi. Manners & courtesy being a theme I’ve heard some ladies talking about, I realized how important it is that our children have these character traits & being a hostess seems like the perfect opportunity to learn. I believe we’ll continue to think of ways to incorporate and build ‘playdates’ around this notion…
