Our own Patriotic Tea Party

Oh what fun we had making memories at an "All-American Girls" tea party I recently hosted for 2 of my granddaughters and 4 of their friends.  Just wanted to share a few pictures with you...

Use a pretzel rod for the flagpole - jelly belly's to make a waving flag. 

We enjoyed star shaped sandwiches and bubble gum and raspberry teas..dessert stack tea party 0709
We wore hats - We presented cookies in patriotic cupcake papers using all the patriotic placemats & dishes in the house. 

We said the Pledge of Allegiance and the girls enjoyed this 'teamwork' project by pushing dixie cups through our chain link fence - we're leaving it there for as long as it lasts.fence flag 0709
