IT’S TEA PARTY SEASON
Getting them to look angelic is beyond me now – so I let them eat the cookies and just be.
At least one of my boys still offers me cookies. Aww. Hero, you’re the sweetest little boy.
A friend of mine asked me recently if I dress my boys purposefully to take photographs of them. Today they were all wearing girls’ jeans from Next. I have a bit of a bib and braces obsession for little boys [and big boys, but the mister won’t wear them sadly] and when I searched their site for something to match their little linen shirts, these came up. They had the perfect flowery braces and my boys LOVE flowers. Plus, there are teeny mice hidden amongst the flowers. Anyway, yes, I do.
Since this is our second tea party, following in the steps of our Easter Bunny Eggstravaganza, it must officially be Back Garden Tea Party Season! I’m looking forward to seeing more outdoor parties for my Britmums Party Inspiration Round up too – if you have a post, please email it to me on firstname.lastname@example.org.
I am a grown woman and I Have never been to a tea party before. I love that your boys love them and you are doing this with them.
Aww, your boys are just the cutest! I LOVED having tea parties with my sister when I was a kid. Even though I'm 24 now, I still LOVE tea parties (even though I ironically don't care to much for tea!).
I remember loving tea parties when I was growing up. I haven't been to one in a long time and those cookies look so tasty. Of course, your boys are adorable! Great photos!!
I love tea parties, being invited to them and hosting them. There is a bed n breakfast near me that I book for tea parties as well.
What fun! these are such gorgeous photos. Would love to have a tea party with my kiddos we haven't done something like that in forever! – Jeanine
I love having tea and tea parties! I probably drink a few cups of tea per day. I'm thinking about having a tea party theme for my daughter's birthday this year.
I love a good tea party! My first and only one I went to was when I was a teenager and to this day, I always think about it. It's about time I give my daughters a tea party to remember!
Tea parties are so much fun, I really enjoy the imagination behind a tea party. There is so much you can do with a tea party for both kids and adults. I am in love with your beautiful photos.
Awww, my girls love having a tea party. My Toddler made me put belts round her soft toy cats necks to look like collars. Then she poured imaginary cups and took one to my husband saying "tea for Daddy". Then she poured mine "and Mummy has Coke!" Think she knows about my soda habit.
What a fun way to spend some time with the kids. It looks like they loved those treats!
I love these pictures and the flowers are great, We love tea parties, in fact we had afternoon tea this afternoon
This post is adorable!! I think your blog is absolutely beautiful and love the photography!
I still remember having tea parties with my cousins as a little girl. I can't wait to plan my daughter's tea party themed birthday party. Your kids look like they had a great time.
Tea parties are so much fun, especially this time of year. It looks like they had a blast, can't wait to have the first one of the season.
You have such a beautiful family! I love the idea of having tea parties, although I never actually have them. Thanks for the inspiration!
I don't think you had any trouble getting them to look angelic. They were doing a pretty good job of it just enjoying the cookies!
This is so cute. I should have a tea party sometime too. Sounds like fun.
Beautiful photography! Tea parties are fun, especially during spring/summer
We don't have tea parties often enough. I'll have to change that because my girls would love it!
Oh, they're just gorgeous – what lovely pictures!
You can't beat a good old tea party in the garden can you x
I love the photos – it looks so pretty and lots of fun!
Beautiful photos and what a lovely idea.
