Sugar and Spice

What to do when everyone is at camp for the week and there are two little girls left?

A fancy tea party of course!

Constant Comment Herbal Blueberry Hot Tea

Pound Cake with Hand Whipped Cream and Sugared Strawberries

We first had to dress fancy. For Lilah Jane that was easy. For Ivy that was a temper tantrum and she ended up in a diaper only. For me that meant putting on heels which I NEVER do and a few of the girls bracelets. Lilah was thrilled that I was joining in the fun.

Next ~ set the table fancy with the doll tub overturned and covered in embroidered handmade stitches, fancy napkins, and the good china!

Set the music to Christmas jazz…don’t ask, it just works for us! 🙂 And watch our fancy clothes quickly fill up with tea stains, strawberry juice, and smeared cream. Lilah danced a bit making sure to take full advantage of her twirling skirt. And Ivy…well, Ivy decided she would feed Eli whipped cream from her cake. He loved it and our little party lasted about a half an hour until he was fussy and needed to nurse.

The tea smelled heavenly and made me think of fall and curling up with a good book. For now I’ll enjoy watching my girls be girls.

Sugar and spice
and everything nice
that’s what little girls are made of

Sunshine and rainbows
and ribbons for hair bows
that’s what little girls are made of

Tea parties, laces
and baby doll faces
that’s what little girls are made of
