Another Birthday Party

So Prima Donna was wishy-washy about a birthday party.

I think she wanted to have one, she just didn't like any of my suggestions. Since she is turning 14, a dance party or a late-night seemed like a good idea. No, that's not what she wanted. It took her several days before she came up with the idea of a tea party.

At first I thought she was crazy. These big girls didn't want to have a tea party!  Boy, was I wrong...

Her plan was to have the kids (I say kids because as you can clearly see, one of these is a guy), decorate cupcakes and then eat them with sparkling cider and a few other items. So she passed out the invitations. I went to the dollar store and bought some cheap pink plates, forks, and napkins. I bought fresh fruit and cheese. Princess made the cupcakes and I mixed up a couple of batches of frosting.

All the kids pitched in, cleaning the house and helping set up the tables. We used cloth tablecloths and our fancy long-stemmed glasses. I was too cheap to buy real sparkling cider so we mixed Sprite Zero with apple juice.

The party was awesome! The kids were well-behaved and seemed to enjoy themselves. Cheese was the item of choice and they went through about 2 lbs of it. They also loved the fresh pineapple and watermelon.

Her friends were very generous and they gave her tons of nice things. I love mostly grown-up kid parties. I just have to sit around and make sure they are chaperoned. Especially when one (or two) of them turns out to be a boy.
