Tea for Two: A Party to Remember
We're going to help you get every little girl's favorite pastime down to a tea. In the hustle and bustle of everyday life, we often forget it's the little things that mean so much to our children. Count tea parties among those memories that last a lifetime. While some moms like to go all out when planning a tea party for their little girls, it doesn't take much to make the occasion special -- and tea parties can be thrown together in a matter of minutes. All you really need is a little imagination. And a tea set doesn't hurt either. Visit any toy store, and you'll see plenty of tea sets readily available. Many parents prefer plastic to china. If you want something a little fancier, check out garage sales, eBay and antique shops for an inexpensive secondhand set. You can always utilize paper cups and plates. Simply place your settings on some paper doilies, and your child will be thrilled with your set up. Before you start your party, wash cups, saucers and tea pots thoroughly. If you have a tray, place everything for your tea party on the tray before it begins. Of course, what's a tea party without tea? Pick up a box of decaffeinated tea bags.
