Confession.....when it comes to crafting, I'm not always very patient!
I'd much rather paint a wall or use a meiter saw. When it comes to
crafting 9 little tea hats....ugh!
So lest you be fooled by the above photo....here's my version of a high tea hat!
My sweet daughter calls it her "zookeeper" hat! My mom came over to help, took one look at my version and said..."How about if I take some of this to my house and work on it??"
The wrapping paper idea....a BIG fail! It just kept crumpling....that, and I needed to buy about 7 more rolls to make 9 hats!
Instead, my mom used white table paper....traced a circle and cut it out. She then used white duct tape to make the hat shape and wrapped it with some pink ribbon.
A MUCH better result.....I am indebted to my mom!
Each little girl got to take home a tea hat and a tissue paper flower...and no,
I can't take credit for those cute cupcakes either....I hired a teenage girl to make them....best decision EVER!
Thanks to your many suggestions over on my FB page, we had awesome food!
I wrapped deli turkey around string cheese, made PB & J sandwiches in flower shapes,
finger jello and pretzel sticks in cheese.
My mom made the adorable carrot curls, chocolate-covered strawberries and
Each little girl had the opportunity to "dress-up" in gloves and jewelry..
...and we also had a special time "doing our nails!"
The day was a HUGE success....this group of girls is so sweet...and so quiet
compared to a group of 9 boys!! I couldn't believe the difference!
Although it was a lot of fun....I think that next time we'll just have a
picnic and run through the sprinkler party.....and skip the hats!
