Poetry Tea Party

As soon as Rachel and I arrived at the poetry tea party, I had our picture taken on the porch swing. When the other people arrived, the little girls all went outside to play some traditional games (like cat and mouse) while holding hands in a circle. They looked absolutely precious as the mothers made tea for their tables. I chose a peach and raspberry tea for Rachel and for me.

When the girls came back inside, we all sat down at our tables. The hostess took a picture of each mother-daughter pair. Then we went to get our food. Hunks of bread were on a plate, as well as a variety of spreads in bowls, so that we could prepare our own sandwiches. Scones, cookies, salad, fruit, and other foods were also on the serving table.

My daughter and I were at our own table. She picked up her teacup and took a sip. She put it down and began eating. She ate way too quickly; I told her to slow down and not take such big bites. She was ready for seconds before everyone had finished serving themselves.

After the food, there were poetry recitations. The little girls looked so cute as they recited poetry. Rachel squirmed around and fidgeted with her hat. After the recitations, the tea party was over.

    My daughter and I have had our own tea parties at our house. This Summer I’m planning on taking her to a tea house with her cousin and my mother-in-law. I’m looking forward to it!

    What a sweet memory! My daughter and I did a tea party once in the past. It was a cute way to spend the afternoon!
