[Girl Moms] On Wednesdays We Wear Pink. . . to tea parties


Hi! I'm erin from hello erin, first time mom to 17 month old alexandria (more affectionately known as "lex"), and lover of all things sparkly and girly. When I found out I was pregnant with a little girl, I immediately began dreaming of bows, ruffles, and glitter. So far lex has not disappointed in that department--and she's as fond of a good accessory as i am (she's rarely seen without a necklace). One thing that wasn't even on my radar was tea parties-but lately it seems our lives are one BIG tea party. They started innocently enough- a simple gathering on a quilt in lex's room, an impromptu cup on rainy afternoons--and then things got crazy.  I purchased and painted the ikea latt kids table, paired it with this adorable tea set, and voila: an instant, too-cute-for-words tea party. As soon as Lex sets her sights on the spread, it's immediately "tea, tea, TEAAAAAA."  Practically any time we get close to the tea set she's screaming for tea.  And of course I'm more than happy to indulge her every time-- my heart swells when she pours tea for her friends, feeds them treats, and lifts their cups to help them drink.  

tea parties are totally where its at my girl mom friends.


our recipe for the perfect tea party involves: cute friends, a cute tea set, and adorable desserts
