Today Chloe celebrated turning 13. She had requested a proper tea party with a purple and green theme.
Eight well dressed young ladies, lots of giggles, cake, pots of tea and sandwiches later, it was declared a success.
We had a hat decorating session when everyone arrived, after which we played another game. Chloe opened some lovely gifts and then it was onto the eating. Everyone seemed to enjoy the tea party. One girl declaring she was in heaven as ‘the spread looked so beautiful’.
A Serious Face for a Serious Job
The boys took their job of butler very seriously. It created a fun atmosphere and everyone got into the party mode very quickly. We wondered if we had created a problem for ourselves. The girls loved it so much they may want ‘tea with a butler’ every day. 🙂 Jarred is wearing the sunglasses at the request of one of the young ladies who said he looks like someone out of ‘Men in Black’. He earned the nickname ‘shades’ by the end of the party.
Chloe had a wonderful time too. She absolutely loves all things ‘cupcake’ which made the choice of a giant one for the birthday cake fairly obvious.
We held it early as school breaks up on Wednesday and her friends are all leaving kingdom for the Christmas break. Which meant no one was going to be here. With Christmas being so close to her birthday as well it seemed better to have it now.
All in all it was a fun , if exhausting 🙂 day.
