Little Keepers Welcome Summer Tea
The girls had a lovely time at their Little Keepers end of the year tea yesterday. My daughter's and I spent all morning getting ready for our tea lunch. We decorated with a nice bright summer quilt, glass mason jars for drinking and some quick scrap booking bright papered ornaments:
We also did lots of cooking up of some delicious eats:
Lemon Zest Meringue Cookies: this was the first time I've made these. They didn't turn out like they're intended, but, oh, were they sweet, sticky and addicting!
Flying over the Rainbow Fruit Skewers.
Tulip Garden Butterfly Cucumber & Cheese Bites.
Mini Bear Claws and Strawberries.
I didn't take a close up of our Sunshine Mini Egg Fritas and Brownie Dirt Covered Flowers, but they were also very delicious. The girls had a chance to chat and participated in a round robin of poetry readings. I had also made a set of story starter cubes with some summerish themes; garden, beach, and princess fairy tales. O.K. the last one is not summer but this was meant for little girls ; ) They seemed to get the hang of it and enjoyed a few rounds as well. Our youngest Keeper got to take those home. Then, like any other meeting, the girls seemed to have the best time playing on our little hill. Boy, they don't need story starters when they go out there!
