GIRLS TEA PARTY

I've posted on here before how my friend loves to host tea parties for my girls and our other friends daughters. This past Friday, she had another one! It's such a blessing when she does this because she really puts her heart into it. Her table is always beautifully decorated, and the girls feel like little Princesses.

What I love the most about this is that my friend Mariela will give each a girl a verse to read, and then she will share a little bit about what that verse means. Not only are their tummies getting fed, but also their spirits.

After we serve the girls and take 100's of pictures, us ladies will go outside to our table that my friend set up for us. This also gives the girls time to have some privacy. Of course, after a few minutes, they are more interested in what we're doing!

When everyone is done eating, that is when the dancing starts! We have a variety of salsa, Christian Rap, and clean old school music to entertain! It was such a fun night, and a great way to end the week! Can't wait to do it again.

Veronica, Michele, & Miranda. I'm so glad that Veronica was able to wear that dress again. It's too pretty to just hang in the closet. Michele is the girl that also went to the Father Daughter Princess Ball with them.

All the girls! This was the best angle we could get of all of them.

Just beautiful!

I make this every time. Strawberry cake with vanilla frosting and sprinkles!

My friend Christina (Michele's mom) made these! And yes, they were as good as they looked.

This was our table outside. Isn't that wonderful?!

Here's a copy of the verses that each of the girls read.

Michele reading her verse. Do you see how my friend printed it on their own individual cards?

And they even had their own place cards.

Time to get our groove on!
