The Tea Trolley

The only thing more fun than having a tea party yourself is making a tea party for tiny people to enjoy.


Laura and cousin John are both very familiar with the world of tea but John does take the cake when it comes to knowing what kinds of tea he'd like (Darjeeling, Irish Breakfast, Earl Grey....) and being adept at pouring for others.


Laura is more gifted at ingesting the contents of the tea table and cups.


Stirring is of course very important!


Check out John's pouring skills!


Michael so kindly took us on a family outing to the Art Museum gardens on Monday. We scrounged the shelves for something to eat and I made sure we had some tea long too!


I packed the tea in mason jars and wrapped them in towels. They weren't scalding hot, but they were certainly much better than doing without!


And here is the lovely table set for tea for our crafting night when we made the crochet hook handles. The table looked so nice and cheery and welcoming!


The weekend promises to have lots of tea with the celebration of Laura's 3rd birthday! There will be plenty of pictures next week!

I love your tea trolly posts Heather - how fun that John has a preference for teas at such a young age - and those pouring skills! Wow! He's ahead of the curve on that one! Laura looks so sweet munching her teat time treats - that's the best part! I'm glad you had tea and such a nice day for your museum trip - great idea to pack them in towels. We have thermoses, but somehow the plastic lining makes for odd flavors. I have been keeping my eye open for some old glass lined thermoses. Enjoy the special birthday for Laura - I just cannot believe she is three already!

Blessings to you, sweet friend!

Your tea trolley experiences this week are so fun! Tea parties really draw children into the experience. Joining in your trolley this week.
