Sooooo, the last week before school (the hottest week of the summer),
my friend Mindee and I had a mini tea party.
Meaning the attendants were mini, cause it was not mini.
partnering with mindee is like being robin to batman...or who is martha stewarts sidekick?
It was a bonaza, a fancy little girls dream tea party.
or so we tried to make it.
The theme was 'In Your Mother's Heels"
and it was a FASHION TEA PARTY.
We recruited some young women from church to help man (or woman) the stations,
makeup, hair, nails...
ages 5 - 9, except for the littlest ones that were related to us
like 23 girls came. no moms or boys allowed.
we invited the girls in our church, we are in different wards
drop off for two hours of tea party heaven.
here are some pictures, it was a serious event and it looks like it got the best of me in these pictures (memo to self, do hair, but serious I was lucky to be showing up)
yes, mindee and I are nuts. whats new?
go big or go home?
or is go big and go crazy?
but the my girls loved it and lucky for me it wasn't at my house
mindees hard wood floors were much more fun to click heels on.
Tina did hair and helped out too (ie, was roped into helping cause she is our friend)
and how did the party end?
well after setup
and then getting ready
and then going early
and then clean up
and lots of sugar
this is how the ride home went
our feet hurt
we were dang tired.
and full of makeup.
it didn't end well.
but thankfully its been a few weeks and now these pictures seem amusing
but it was painful then
we hope to make it a yearly event, but definitely going to be smarter next time. donut holes are just as good as cake balls and much less work.
i need to post a picture of the invites cause they are the cutest thing ever (cause mindee made them), they were heels that could stand, all fancied up.
ps. if you came, remind me to give your picture of that day or your daughter all dressed up! thanks for coming!
I totally forgot this part (or maybe repressed some of these memories of the tea party, cause for me it was quite taxing) but Emily totally saved my behind and let Luke spend the nite (the only place is he allowed to spend the nite!) and so he was saved from the girlie madness (and my madness)..and really that girl is gold to me. The End.
