Everything for a real tea party is made out of card board. The youngest player spins first. You have to land on the plate before you can start getting the food-different sandwiches, desserts and fruit. Each person can also get a sugar and creamer, a napkin with silverware and of course a tea cup(you match the flowers on your tea cup with the flowers on your plate). The first person to collect all the pieces wins.The games go fast, so we're able to play several in a short period of time. We have such a wonderful time playing a real game with Emma. Guess what? The clean up is not nearly as bad as a real tea party!

Red Sparkly shoes!!!!!
Mary was given a pretty bracelet (she loves jewelry!).
Finally Grace received a real treasure-
This was Margaret's mother's (MamMaw) recipe/scrap book. I can't wait to sit and look through this and try some of the recipes.
What a nice trip we had. Many more sweet memories were made at Margaret's house.
I made her a bag to keep her knitting in when she goes to work.
I included a ball of yarn, knitting needles and a knitting needle holder.
Next I finished a dress for Emma....
This is "Hillary" by Children's corner-a super easy pattern but oh so cute!
Later on in the week, I monogrammed handkerchiefs for great-grandmother Margaret.
