Hannah is now 5!! I can't believe it. Since she loves serving tea to her stuffed animals, I decided to do a tea party for her birthday party. I think I had as much fun as her, but I did get a little carried away-there are so many details to think of. She also got a separate family party on her actual birthday, she got her choice of dinner (spaghetti and meatballs), presents from family and a cake I made.

We had 6 girls all together and they came dressed in their favorite dress-I even got Hannah in a dress! We had a make-up table and lots of extra dress up accessories. They each got a paper fan and beads, and then my Mom and sister helped apply eyeshadow, blush, glitter, lip gloss and perfume to each guest. We then had the tea party.They had place mats with their names on the same paper teapots I had made for the invitations. I had real tea sets for them all to drink and serve out of. They were so mannerly-please and thank yous everywhere. We served the food (sugar cookies, fruit kabobs, cheese kabos, flower shaped sandwiches, crackers, mints and their choice of Chai tea, apple juice or milk), and then opened presents, and then had birthday cupcakes and some extra games before parents came for pick up. I had paper purse party favors to go home with each girl. It was a great party (but a LOT of work.)
