This past weekend, Baby received her first tea service from her Uncle and Aunt. The colors are a perfect fit for my “To a Garden Tea Party” quilt. While Baby was napping one morning this week, with the quilt in tow, I went to work setting the table (coffee table that is) to give her a little surprise when she woke up from her nap.
I tried to keep the “garden” theme – so, a Lego tree with flowers, some wooden trees, and a wheelbarrow carrying a bird were used.
I did have to loan some things from my stash to add to the tablesetting – the “milk” pitcher, fake lavender sprigs, and my sterling salt spoon.
I sorted through our little stash of animal crackers, and picked out the ones that are complete:
Never mind that the tea set was meant for children above 8 years old…
… here Baby, who is barely 1 1/2 years young, demonstrated to me how to hold a teacup with class and finesse. I think Baby is officially introduced to dish-aholism, don’t you?! Oh, what fun awaits me!
It was a fun little exercise for us. We had no accidents or casualty during tea. No breakable pieces were broken. All the pieces were carefully stowed away in the box after we were finished with our tea.
Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have enjoyed this sweet little tablesetting set for a sweet little thing in my life. You must join us next time we have tea again.
