Valentines Day Tea Party
We have a tea party. Everyone gets dressed up in fancy schmancy clothes, usually play clothes for the younger girls. (See me above....oh how I miss my long hair.) Even Ashlea got dressed up...she wore the dress we bought her for our wedding, that had never been worn before and was only worn for the wedding and quickly changed out of the first chance she got. But, hey, at least we got our money's worth.
We make/buy finger sized snacks; sandwiches cut into hearts, M & M's, bunny crackers, mini muffins, cheese cubes, fresh veggies. (See picture above)
We also make tea and use real sugar cubes. Oh, how the girls love the sugar cubes. Which is great, because they hate hot tea.
This year we are doing things a little different. We are going to do a fondue; cheese and chocolate.
I will get veggies, bread, olives, and salami for the cheese.
For the chocolate I will get all kinds of fruits, pretzels and marshmallows.
Usually we don't invite anyone else, but this year Mimi is invited and so is DAD. YES, we invited Dad.
Since the girls don't actually like the tea, I think I'm going to make a fruit juice seltzer drink as well.
What do you do for Valentines Day? I can't wait to hear some new ideas for next year.
