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?

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.
