Celebrate back to school traditions!. Bring a bit of fun and spontaneity to the table and surprise them with "Tea Time". (this is also a good time to remind them of Mr. & Mrs. Manners!)
You will need:
* finger food treats-something special- how about pretty mini cupcakes from the bakery
* teacups, saucers, spoons and napkins for everyone
*your favorite blend of tea -herbals and rooibos teas are great for the kids; or iced tea
* milk and sugar
Now go ahead and go all out! Watch their eyes pop when they see that the table is set for them!
Yes, put out the pretty fabric napkins and show them how to place it on their laps. (Won't Nana be pleased to see this on her next visit!)
Afternoon Tea is meant to be relaxing and fun. Enjoy the moment with your children! I bet that this will bring back memories for you while making new memories for them!
