This weekend my sweet little Claire turned 4 years old! We celebrated with a dress up tea party with her cousins & a few friends.
Throwing birthday parties really kinda stresses me out. So we tried to keep it easy & low key. I purchased some real china tea cups & saucers from the thrift store. We decorated the table with a few flowers that we purchased from the grocery store & I hung a few flag garlands from my shop.
The food was all displayed on adorable cake stands that my sister made. We served tiny turkey or peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, strawberries, cantaloupe, crackers & cheese, veggies & ranch dip, and chex mix. Our tea was a delicious fruity punch.
The kids were all such good eaters & were so polite. I think the fancy table setting & dishes had something to do with that. :)
We played a few games. The kids went on a treasure hunt in the yard & each found their own sheet of stickers. Then we did a prize walk. Kinda like a cake walk, but instead of winning a cake when we called out their number, they won a prize.
Finally we sang to the birthday girl & she crossed her eyes when she blew out the candles & thought it was hilarious.
I couldn't love her more.
