Tea Parties and Dishes

Remember the birthday party that wasn't? Stacia is ready to collect on the promise of a "New Friends" party. We're going to have a Garden Tea Party (without a garden) next Saturday. I didn't know this until this afternoon. ::snort::

We used our trip to Hard Off to purchase 8 little tea cups which we'll use for favors and give away to the guests.

Arielle made these cute invites! 

A small gathering
of old and new friends
to get reacquainted
and chat till no end!

Join us for a Garden Tea Party
Saturday, 29 September
2:00 – 3:30 p.m.
Stacias  House (W700 Y)

Plans are in full swing now!  I think it will be a fun party for Stacia. The focus will be all on friendship and not on birthday. 

While we were at the recycle shop (thrift store)...I picked up a few more Japanese dishes...because they make me smile....and I've become a tad bit Japanese in that I like lots of small pretty dishes at a meal....and since my portions are smaller...the new dinner plates will be a treat to use.  Arielle and I decided I needed to buy quite a bit as they are SURE to break and I won't be able to replace them from dishes purchased in Japan...and there needs to be a few to leave to the girls when I "pass on".  Did I mention they make me smile? 

How often will I be able to buy plates with this marking in Japan?

Choosing Joy!

How fun for you to be having this party. The invitations you made are very nice.
Hope this party was/is a TON of fun and that you find some neat friends.

Tell you Mom for me that those beautiful dishes also make me smile. So beautiful.

I wish they'd had more than 2 of the plates....but many of the dishes here are that dark blue so they all coordinate. LOL

Arielle did a great job on the invite.
