These two sweetie pies, who are also brother and sister, and my daughter's two youngest of four, haven't missed a Cooking/Art Camp all summer! We planned a special tea party for today. Even my soccer-loving grandson was such a good sport about it, and got right in with the preparations.
A few weeks ago, when we made the Teddy Bears at the Beach Cupcakes, we dyed half the batter green, and baked the extra cupcakes and froze them. On party day, we frosted them, and the kids even used my decorating tube. They did a great job, don't you think? They even carefully arranged the chocolate chips on top for the "seeds". I'm so proud of them!
Look how pretty they placed the cupcakes on the tiered plate. They even chose special cookie cutters from my collection, to cut out their sandwich shapes.
I carved the watermelon into a teapot the day before the party, with instructions that bloggy buddy Lynn, sent me awhile back. I've been holding on to these instructions for our special tea party. If you'd like to make a watermelon teapot, check here. The only thing that I did differently was not to use a bottom slice underneath the "teapot", as I didn't feel it was necessary. Thanks, Lynn, for thinking of me and my Cooking Camp. This was the perfect centerpiece for our party, and that's where the kids placed it!
Look how my grandson fixed our plates and poured our drink!
Here's our menu:
Veggies and Ranch Dip
Mixed Fruit served from the Watermelon Teapot
We sure had a fun time at our special tea party! The kids picked their favorite painted trios that my Late Great Aunt Kitty gave me. Didn't the kids do a great job on setting the table, and arranging the table and chairs? The sweet kids even dressed up, and the funny thing is, we all wore blue!
Uncle Mike had his Art Camp and taught us how to watercolor a watermelon, and it was a fun, easy project.
On August 16th, it will be the 3rd Anniversary of my Beloved's passing into eternity....he's forever in my thoughts and in my heart.
Thank you for your visit! xo
