Lucy recently turned four, and Maggie is about to turn two. (Did I just type that? GAH!) Since school was just getting started around Lucy's birthday, we decided that this year we would have a small, combined party for the girls. That was back in June, and until about mid-August I totally forgot to, you know, plan anything. Luckily my mother happened to discover a little tea shop (it might actually be a shoppe) near her house that dabbles in princess themed tea parties! Cue the sparkle!

We got together with a small group of family this weekend to celebrate, and the girls couldn't have been more excited. They got all dressed up for the occasion! We had a bit of trouble finding a Rapunzel dress that would fit Maggie, because she's apparently quite small, even for a two year old. Luckily I've been watching Project Runway for about a dozen years now (at least it seems that way) and so, with the help of a seam ripper and some hot glue, I was able to make some minor adjustment to keep her dress from falling off of her. A few tiaras later and we were ready to go!
The girls gasped when they saw their table!
They each had their own tea pot with
strawberry lemonade pink tea, real glass tea cups, and a craft. Then they were joined by two of their cousins.
Princess represent! They ate heart shaped grilled cheese sandwiches, strawberries and marshmallows. Then they had rainbow ice cream for dessert. Maggie LOVED blowing out the candles, so much so that we let her do it several additional times. It was too effing cute.
Despite it being a small affair, the girls were showered with tons of lovely gifts. It looks like the princess section of the disney store exploded in their room, which of course is about the best thing that could ever happen to a couple of little girls. I hardly ever see them, and Lucy didn't even want to go to school this morning beacuse then she wouldn't get to play with all of her stuff!
Oh, and the grown ups had a lovely lunch as well, with tea and home made scones, salad and delicious sandwiches, cheesecake and ice cream. I highly reccomend it, if you're in the area!
