It was a lovely day for the Last Day of School party and this is by far the easiest party we have thrown!
Here are the invites we sent out for the tea party. We used an image of the Mad Hatter's Tea Party and sewed a peppermint tea bag to the cardstock.
We purchased a set of 12 tea cups from Goodwill and attached a last minute whim bling ring purchase for the girls to look glam while they were drinking tea.
Rather than try to ply the neighborhood 8-year olds with scones and cucumber sandwiches we served peanut butter and jelly "tea" sandwiches, cheese puffs and pretzels.
We set up two tables with the food and tea cups in the backyard. The girls sat on a comforter to the left of the tables.
Upon arrival the girls made bracelets and necklaces with fruit loops. Simply an easy and inexpensive craft. And the girls enjoyed snacking on it. Once all of the girls had arrived, we served up the food raspberry iced tea and pink lemonade.
What's a tea party without a game of croquet?
The swag bag was technically a swag cup. The tea cups from the party were quickly washed up and filled up with pink jelly bellys and Smarties.
