Last Chance Summer Fun- TEA PARTY!!!

Smile if you don't want summer to end!!!  Ok, even I am having a hard time getting in the back to school routines and letting summer end.  Yep, teacher talking here! 

So we had a few kids over for a tea party.  Our church is getting closer to launching a tea house...I'm so ready for it to open!! So what better way to get some of the kids and church people excited but with a tea party! 

There are several ways to brew tea just like there is coffee.  We had some fun showing the kids how to make tea.  We love using the loose leaf teas and having them taste it without adding sugar or honey to it.  I'm sure many of them would have loved it more had we added the extras.   

What do you need with tea?  Cookies of course!   I will admit that these are all store bought.  I tried a recipe for Portuguese tea cookies and I had a major fail.  :( I am going to try again but the kids enjoyed the variety we picked out.    

Some kids dunked their cookies in the tea! 

Aren't they the sweetest group ever!  :)  Enjoying tea and sandwiches and cookies! Smile pretty! 

Oriental trading hooked us up with the right supplies for our party.  We got some tea mints, tea cup lollipops, tea cup flower planters, and a tea cup bean bag toss.  

 The kids loved these tea mints.  There were several different flavors too so it was a surprise when they opened a new one and saw a different color. 
 Who knew you could order tea cup lollipops?   These were so adorable and the kids enjoyed them.  Just look at their silly pictures below eating them!  I think we might have to order more of these to sell at our shop! 

So sadly our party had to move inside due to rain.  

Painting Time
I have to tell you that these flower planters are going to be so adorable.  They did finish painting them but I have to pick up more planting dirt so we can plant some succulents in them.   I like how the set comes with a plate and tea cup.   The bottom of the tea cup does have a drainage hole which I think will help the parents since succulents don't need much water it can drain appropriately.  

Are you planning a party soon?   Make sure you get all the party essentials you might need for one stop shopping.  

Any other ideas I could add to a tea party?   Maybe some face painting?  Maybe some more tea education?  Comment and let me know what else I should add to our tea parties.  :) I appreciate the comment love!

Knot Genie Review and Giveaway

If you have a little girl and have not heard of the Knot Genie then you need to watch the following video:   "The Knot Genie™ and Teeny Genie™ Detangling Brushes were created for every mom that has endured the foot stomping and screaming matches that come with brushing their child's hair. With the Knot Genie, even the curliest, most knotted up hair practically slips through the unique bristle configuration – gently and painlessly. Try the Knot Genie on your kids (or on yourself) – you'll be amazed by the ease of brushing, as well as how it virtually stops breakage and split ends. You've wished for hair brushing standoffs to end. Wish granted." My Review:  Thanks to the Knot Genie for sending me the product to conduct my review.  I was not paid for this review and all opinions expressed are 100% mine.  I know I have grown so tired of my daughter coming to tears every morning when we did her hair. I was becoming to think she was the most

Dry Idea: Deodorant Review and Giveaway

I know most of you know I was at kids camp last week and I think I mentioned the humidity and heat that we had that week!  I was daring as I only brought my new Dry Idea  deodorant  that I had never used prior.  I had no idea if it was going to keep me from smelling like B.O or if I was going to have sweaty pits. So how did the Dry Idea hold up to the hot and humid days at kids camp???  Arms raised high during worship in the morning and in the evening!  :)  I was dry and I did not stink!  :) WOOT WOOT!  I had the unscented brand and I usually do prefer a pretty scent but it worked and they do have scents which include powder fresh and cotton dry that I might try in the future.  :) The Dry Idea Roll-On is 24 hour protection, fast drying MicroCotton Formula, hypo allergenic, and contains Vitamin E.  :) Don't like roll on's??  They do offer Clear Gel and an Invisible Solid.  :) Dry Idea provided a free sample of their Advanced Dry roll-On so I could review them.  However,
