She wanted to celebrate with her friends by having another tea party. So, for take-away gifts, she and her brother planted flowers in teacups (from "VV Boutique" -- aka Value Village):
And we filled little baskets with tea, collector teaspoons and fancy neckware ;)
We played "tea" games -- like "What's missing on the tea tray?" and Musical Teapots (since there wasn't room for so many chairs ;)
And of course we did some art! I was just going to have them paint tea related things with water colour paints, but my friend Shannon showed me a cool idea she'd recently learned -- the girls drew or stencilled a picture using permanent markers, then painted a rainbow of watercolour over top so that the colours blended into each other beautifully. The marker pictures popped behind the paint. Easy -- but lovely!
Lemonade tea (basically iced tea), sandwiches, veggies and fruit, and cake and cupcakes completed the event!
