The day we had a tea party

The following is sponsored conversation with Put Me In The Story. All opinions and dusty dishware, as always, are my own.

Bonjour, my lovely readers! You are cordially invited to my very fancy tea party today on zee blog ...


Yes, this is the cutest book ever. I know, I say that every time. But really -- this one might just be the cutest.


To celebrate our newest Put Me In The Story book, Fancy Nancy Tea Parties (for Fancy Charlotte Rose), my little lady dressed up in my old First Communion dress (!!!) and two necklaces and we threw ourselves a très elegant tea party.


I've never used my fancy teacups with the kids, but you know what? Nothing broke and we all really enjoyed ourselves. Gosh darnit, we're going to do this more often!

(Also, everything tastes better off a fancy toothpick. Nancy taught me that.)


Let's get down to business: the book, and how it's going to make your tea parties 4000% better than before ...


There are fun recipes that kids can follow, like Delectable Fruit Kebabs and a yummy-sounding drink called an Orange Fizzeroo.


There are decoration ideas, little craft projects, and keep-'em-busy suggestions EVERYWHERE.


There's also a ton of French instruction, and the former French Immersion student in me really got a kick out of that. The kids have been fascinated lately by asking me to say things in French, so they loved this.


I burst out laughing at D's expression when he sipped his "tea" (pink lemonade). He was hella suspicious of this tea party, but had a fine time in the end.


Nothing like curls, pearls and sepia tone to make a little girl + a tea set look EVEN MORE ADORABLE.
