Mad Tea Party 2016


Welcome! to the 9th Annual Bloggers Tea Party hosted by A Fanciful Twist.  

This year I held an actual tea party for my children and their friends.  And as usual, I created something new to celebrate the event.  New to Watermelon Party are a 
Watermelon Surprise Ball and a Strawberry Surprise Ball. 
 Each one has at least 6 prizes wrapped within layers and layers of colorful streamers.  


 
On the menu:
Peanut Butter and Jelly French Toast roll ups with powdered sugar 
Whipped Cream Cheese Sandwiches
Flower Shaped Sugar Cookies
Milk Chocolate Frosted Pound Cake
Four different teas and drinks.






Our little guests practice their "pinky finger drinking".  Did you know?...Since ancient Rome, a cultured person ate with 3 fingers, a commoner with five. Thus, the birth of the raised pinkie as a sign of elitism. This 3 fingers etiquette rule is still correct when picking up food with the fingers and handling various pieces of flatware. 


After the tea and snacks they opened their surprise balls.

  10. It looks like everyone had a great time with those fabulous surprise balls, they're really a fantastic idea for a party. I'll have to remember that bit about using just three fingers and keeping the pinkie finger up the next time I eat a hot dog, ha!
