Our daughter recently turned 6.
She had her friends over for a Garden Party or Tea Party. As of late Tea Party seems to have multiple meanings even without adding “boston” to it 🙂
Once we decided on a theme my wife swung into full planning mode. All I could really do at that point is step out of the way and make a few trips to hobby lobby, joann’s, and ruin a pair of perfectly good fabric scissors by cutting fiberglass mats with them (another lesson learned).
The minute I heard about a Garden Party all I really could think about was the old Marillion song “Garden Party” – not really sure why but at least it shows my age 🙂
Anyway – the party was a great success – thanks to all the cool people showing up and my wife’s endless effort 🙂
