Tea Party, Love Is..., A Winner and the Rusted Chain

Last week we had a little impromptu tea party. Lillie had asked for one the night before, but I told her we'd have to wait until tomorrow if she wanted to have a one with snacks included so she, Jon and Lola decided to have a pretend one with the little pink set that Jon got her for her when she was a baby (you can see the tiny pink teapot and saucers in the photo above). A few minutes later I heard a crash. We no longer have any teacups and let's just say none of the females in the family were to blame. I think there's a reason tea parties don't normally include boys - haha! =) So, when we had our tea party the next day we had to use some of our grown up pieces.

Also I forgot to mention in yesterday's post the paint colors. I used Ballet White (leftover from several projects) for the table top and chairs and for the table legs I used Valley Forge Tan (leftover from when I painted my computer armoire.) You can see the two colors clearly in the photo below, but I would say it looks a little more contrasting in the photo than it does in person.

Lillie's friends Chloe and Bayley gave this adorable little sock monkey to Lola (and gave Lillie a bunch of their dolls!) and while Lola was napping the sock monkey got to enjoy the tea party with Lillie.

Lola's checking it all out.

Mmmmmm...nothing like a mini chocolate bundt cake! =)

Also, we have restocked our Love is... pillow cover sets in both black:
 and white:

  3. So sweet to see the girls dressed up in their pretty dresses for their tea party. I remember having tea parties with my sister when we were little. Special times and memories. Mini chocolate bunt cakes sound yummy!

  4. Tea for Two... those little ladies are as sweet as sugar!
    Happy Janice found your amazing blog and shop. Congratulations to her.

  5. What a couple of darling little proper ladies having their afternoon tea.
    I love it!!!

  6. Adorable! seeing your sweet table is really making me want to go paint ours:)

  7. Never too early to start them on a proper tea party! Love it!

    Also, have to give a shout out about The Rusted Chain. I have one of their monogrammed pendants with a little hanging pearl and I just love it! I get so many compliments from it and I wear it all the time! Simple but so darling.

  8. Lilly looks so pretty in that darling white dress. I have great memories of cocoa (tea) parties when I was a little girl. I'm sure your girls will hold these memories in their hearts as well. And they'll have lovely photos to keep those memories alive. What a great mom you are!

  9. Ha! That's so cute... Lola looks so grown up all of a sudden. I swear, i think kids go to bed one night, and wake up the next morning 3 inches taller! The petit table is so sweet...
    Girls, tea parties and chocolate, now that's what little girls and big girls are made of !
