Tea Party Sneak Peek

I've been a little bit stressed about this tea party for my daughter....I'm not the greatest
of party planners and many times, the ideas in my head don't always translate well into real life....ever happen to you??

Son to my husband at lunch: "Yeah....watch out.  Mom's a little grumpy today!"

{Um...maybe it's because I'm trying to homeschool you, clean the house,
do laundry, and make 10 'flowers' from tissue paper that look more like
rumpled balls rather than cute flowers???}

Thankfully, my artistic (kind and patient!) hubby is always around to "rescue" 
my ideas and turn them into something usable!

Case in point....the R2D2 cake...

Totally was a hubby rescue!!

{I had to laugh when I looked at these pictures....it was about 2
colors "back" in my kitchen that has been about 5 colors in only 6 1/2 years!}

So.....I am rather pleased with how the place settings are turning out...

I just made some tissue paper flowers, cut scrap fabric with pinking shears
and tied them around a napkin with baker's twine...

My other "brilliant" idea....making "high-tea" hats from wrapping paper...not so successful.

I'll keep you posted on that one....I had to call in help from my mom!
