THE TEA PARTY!




Hello Ladies! Did you ever have a great plan and then when the time came to put it in motion, you forgot? Well, that is what happened to me this weekend. We finally had that baby shower for my daughter this weekend. Transporting china and crystal is never easy, but it was done without one fatality. The tables look beautiful, however, my big plan for taking pictures was totally forgotten. I could kick myself. I did get a few, mostly of family. This sweet little girl is my niece, Rachel. I never thought twice about taking pictures of the china.



Vanessa had such a great time and she was so happy. Vanessa is the one in the middle, she is between my Mom and my other daughter, Monique. It was worth all the work to just see her face. It is the most amazing feeling to see your children have children. I can't explain it. I think of my mother, who not only sees her child have children, but her grandchildren are now having children. God has given her the privilege of knowing and loving her Great Grandchildren! It is just an amazing to me. I hope that everyone of you ladies will one day, know what it feels like. You love them so much, that your heart can hurt just thinking about them.



This post will be different because, I am sharing pictures I did manage to take. To tell you the truth, I was just having so much fun, I forgot. I hope you don't mind seeing faces you do not know.



One of the pictures I just had to show you were of these cute little feet my best friend's daughter, KD, made for the Tea. They were so good. She cut each foot out by hand. In fact that young lady, made all the sweets for us.




Here is Mr. Linky. Please dazzle us with your tea cups. My life is a lot more peaceful now. I promise to catch up on all my visits.



The first two pictures is a tea cup and a sugar & creamer set I was given by my Mother that day. A woman after my own heart! Thank you so much for allowing me to share this very personal party. Please take the time to visit all our friend. Don't for get the ever amazing Terri! I have also added many pretty items onto my website. Please take a peek. Remember to email me and I will give you a discount if you are a follower!

Hugs, Martha

Hello Martha,
I love that you forgot to photograph. That means, you was happy with this baby shower and you have been fully involved with your family. Events in real life are much more important than blogging. And see, we have a few nice pictures, which are not only full with wonerful china and nice treats. Those pictures breath the whole delight of a happy family, celebrating a wonderful baby shower. I wish the baby and the family all blessings, God can spend.
Best greetings, Johanna

How fun to see those happy faces at the baby shower. The tables looked beautiful with your lovely china pieces and those baby feet cookies were adorable.

It must be an amazing feeling to welcome great grandchildren into your life - your Mom is truly blessed.

Hello Martha,
It looks like your shower came off beautifully! The table looks gorgeous with all your china. Your daughter is glowing, a very good sign for a mother to be! I am so glad you had such a great time.
I am glad you were able to get a few picture so we could see how it went. No worries about not enough pictures! You were having fun, and that is the most important part.

Hello dear Martha,
I am late visiting because you are four hours behind me so by the time your post goes up, I'm usually in bed. I did however get linked up on Terri's blog.
I'm so glad your tea party went well. I simply adore the aqua teapot and teacups in front of your niece Rachel! I adore that colour; divine! The little feet cookies are the cutest things! I can imagine the squeals of delight over them. Thank you for sharing your lovely tea party with us.

Blessings,
Sandi

You're so very right about watching babies have babies( ha Ha) but oh isn't it grand to be the grandma. Your shower celebration is filled happy smiling faces ( i love looking at photos) and of course your beautifiul china and teacups assisted in completeing the magic of this event...Thank You for sharing your family memories...HUGS
