Today the lovely Glenda @ sweetdaisydreams is hosting a virtual Tea Party and i was cordially invited. THANKYOU MISS GLENDA :)
Well girls i was going to set the table for all of you to join me for tea but i decided to set it for Sam and i see my boy started a new pre school yesterday and he is kinda sad about new stuff, making new friends, fitting in etc etc....breaks my heart to see him so sad and crying, so i thought this Tea Party might cheer him up when he gets home!

Ive invited some of Sams 'friends' to join us....oh but his best mate 'Stinky' is with him at pre school for a bit of comfort, so Stinky will have to find a spot on the sofa when they both get home *grin*

Now....onto the sweet stuff !

A sunny spot in the Pretty Room for our Tea Party.....

Sams chair is at the table, all ready for him.....with some friends waiting patiently behind on the sofa.

Yummy we love Fairy Bread and Pink Lemonade Jelly at our house....

Ooooooh baby meringues and pink musk sticks at CAFE' PINK ..LOL !

Looks yummy doesnt it? There is gonna be some serious teeth brushing after this tea party folks, LOL.
Oh we have water in our teacups so it's not too bad *wink*
ok now...all i need is the guest of honour to get this Tea Party started!

hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm waiting waiting...............
Oh look heres my boy now !

I think he was surprised and excited!

And being a good best friend he let Stinky have a drink and join in :)

So now our tummys are full (if not a bit queesy also..ick) and we are off to brush all that sugar off our teeth!

Thanks for popping by, maybe next time you can all join Sam and i for a huge Tea Party :)
Thanks again Glenda for hosting. Girls make sure you pop by and visit Glenda, she's a doll!

What a lovely tea party, Sam looked so excited. I am glad to see my 3 year old boy is not the only boy who likes tea parties:) And buz also comes to our tea parites I don't know where he finds the time esp with his space ranger duties.
I am sure Sam will be settled in his new class soon. In a few weeks he will have made friends and there will be no stopping him.

How gorgeous Shannon. i bet Sam thought it was the best treat he could have. I know how it feels to see your child miserable. It's not fun. Love the tea party table settings too and the yummy food. Hugs, Kathryn.

I am so sorry Sam is having a hard time in school. Please give him a big hug from Miss Bunny. Poor little guy :( I go through this a lot with my boys in school and them getting picked on :( My second oldest has lots of freckles and gets teased. It is just heartbreaking to see your child hurting.

Much love,

Looks like a fun tea party Shannon. Hope Sam is doing better today about school. We all kind of feel that way no matter how old we get, huh? Sorry it's chilly there. You can come on up to sunny Ohio where it's a balmy 95 in the shade. LOL Oh and I love your new banner, very pretty.

Donna said...

What a lovely party for dear Sam! Move over on that sofa because I would love to join you!

Candy said...

What a gorgeous tea party. Sam looked like he was having a great time :-) I love all your pretty furniture and tea things.

Hope that you love the banana bread recipe as much as I do - I make it quite often and usually have a small stash in the freezer too.

What a yummy pink teaparty for you and darling Sam. I love pink lemonade jelly too. I can see Sam found it a wonderful surprise and Stinky too.

Linda said...

Hi Shann,
Looks like a wonderful tea party, could you please save me a pink musk stick I haven't had one of those in years, great now I have a craving for them, I don't think that I would be able to get any of them this late at night so I will just have to think of something else, chocolate I wonder if there is any in the fridge?
Cheers Linda, I'm off to find some chocolate.

KARA said...
