Chicken Dude Tea Party

As I’ve mentioned before, Court does a killer job planning fun family activities for our family. This past Sunday, it was a family tea party based on ideas from the Fancy Nancy Tea Parties book. Court made lollipop placecards, tissue paper flowers, raspberry and orange swirls,

The kids cut out and decorated placemats and paper doilies; folded special napkin shapes; and decorated utensils.

And of course, being a fancy tea party, we had to dress up!

The kids had a blast making all of the tableware and loved the food. SUGAR!!! It’s by far the fanciest tea party we’ve ever had.

Afterward, the guys and girls split up to have a chick night and a dude night. The girls watched “The Parent Trap” while painting their nails. The dudes played LEGO Star Wars on Wii (well, Josiah watched while Liam and I played). We’d been telling the kids all day that it was coming, but when the girls heard us saying, “chick and dude night” they heard “chicken dude night”.

Not exactly what we were going for…

  1. What a great idea. Courtney’s snacks look incredible, and the kids did a great job with the decorations. I love Victoria’s fancy dress over her jeans. And I can just see Chicken Dude; bet he wears a cape. Somewhat worrisome that the girls were going to “pain” their nails, however. That part sounds a little weird to me. 🙂
