I know that we are still in the dead of winter here in Tennessee but once the days start getting a little longer, I feel like it’s time for a tea party!  And tea parties with little girls are the best!  Have you given a tea party for the little (or big) girls in your life lately?  If not… it’s time and I’ll help you!

    Hello Dori,
    I use to put a tea party on every year the day after Thanksgiving, because a lot of people had that day off. I have a lot of friends in the teaching field, so they couldn’t come during the week, and it was hard to give up their weekends to come for tea.
    I did all the work, and told them to wear their favorite vintage or just wear black, (classy, but didn’t take away from the other outfits) and they loved seeing what people were wearing.
    Thanks for sharing your tea party. Just love it, and setting the girls up to a life time of loving tea parties and going to tea!!!

    A tea party with little girls is always such a treat

  3. Ramona Puckett says:

    Oh my goodness! How cute everything looks and the girls are adorable! I have grandsons so we don’t do the tea party but I do have girlfriends who would love a tea party, thank you for the pictures and the ideas!

    Tea parties are my favorite thing to do❣️❣️❣️ Once I had one for my granddaughter when she was 6. We had gowns from goodwill. Hats. Jewelry. High heels. They had a blast❣️ I’m having a small Tea on Feb 26…I’ll try to send pics

  5. Nicki says:

    Aw, Dori! Everything turned out so pretty! It is giving me some last-minute inspiration for the Valentine-making get together that my daughter (17) is having at our house with her friends!

    Adorable! My grandchildren are all boys, they would not appreciate a tea party!

  7. Jill says:

    I love that you were honest about the hard things!! So often, we think that we should be able to do all things effortlessly, if we have the directions. 🙂

    Love the purses!!! And, you decided to make them the night before. I can’t wait to read your tutorial.

  8. Joan says:

    Yes!!! My annual Tea Party is coming up soon, thanks for the great ideas for decorating and serving, hopefully I will have the time to do the lovelies. My ‘girls’ are all over the age of 50 but I am sure they will love the purses, will be extra happy to get MaryJanesFarm magazine. Yay I am so excited!!!! Thanks again for your blog and always look forward to your next. I’m still quilting and the thimble is super great. God bless.

    What fun! Thank you for the delightful and inspiring post!

    I never had a tea party growing up and my brother’s wife would would serve me tea when I visited with them and it was always nice. Not a party but hot steeped tea in pretty cups from a pretty teapot. I now collect pretty tea pots or unusual ones. I don’t have any grand-girls to enjoy a tea party with. I love reading your blogs.

  11. Lisa Ferrel says:

    OOOOOooo such a pretty and inviting party!! Thanks for sharing it. What kind of tea did you serve? (Your cupcakes looked “divoon”) Maybe sometime you’d like to try my Zen Bear Honey Tea – possibly “Radiant Rose” or “Blue Moon” (blueberry, lavender, maca, nettle, red clover and red raspberry leaf) for an afternoon treat. Just let me know. Cheers, Lisa

    How Fun and Beautiful! What a joy to be able to have such a sweet “girls day”!

  13. Marilyn says:

    What a lovely tea party. Everything is beautiful. Thank You for sharing. I look forward to seeing more of the pictures from the tea party.
    HAPPY ST. VALENTINE’S DAY

    You sure pulled out all the stops for this adorable ladies tea party… Loved it from top to bottom… Those little grand girlies of yours are just the cutest and so lucky to have you for a Grammy! Happy ( almost ) growing season! I’m planting sweat peas this weekend… Wish me luck! I bet you’re itching to get out and plant too!
    Farmgirl hugs!
