Landon's preschool is affiliated with a beautiful church, and even though I am not a member, I have been vowing to go and take a look! I belong to another church but this one is a little closer.
I was asked to host a table at their annual Christmas Tea because the preschool director was running it this year! I was so honored! I wanted to use my Royal Crown Derby Old Avesbury set so badly! I knew it wold be beautiful.
I enlisted the help of my friend Katie, and together we came up with a Winter Woodland theme. I joked the table was sponsored by Marshalls! The vase in the center, amber colored with gold branches Katie found at Michaels. Then the peacock my mom had given me at the top, and birds and owls with gold beaks, also from Marshalls.
I loved using my birds nest ornaments with little gold eggs as place card holders!
It was a lovely event with gorgeous tea sandwiches (may favorite was the pumpernickel bread Christmas tree shaped cucumber sandwiches). We also had scones, clotted cream, and many other goodies.
If your kids are dying to have a "sleep over" but are too young, try having a pretend one. Invite the friend over and leave the kids with a baby sitter while you and the parents go out for dinner. Let the kids have their sleeping bags and PJ's and go to sleep. When they wake up in the morning asking where their friend is, say they just left!
