Colonial Birthday Tea Party
Doesn't she look cute? On October 31st Lauren had a tough decision to make as to whether to go to a friend's birthday party, or go trick or treating. (I know, I know....Halloween stemmed from evil things and there are still evil things associated with it to this day, and I still have mixed feelings about whether or not we should partake in trick or treating, but let's not focus on that for this post). Anyways, she chose the friend's party. The theme was colonial. Fortunately, a few years ago I had bought this dress at a garage sale for Lauren for her dress up clothes, so it fit in really well for this theme. I should have taken a better picture of the hat. It is an actual replica of a colonial hat that was made in her colonial times class at our homeschool co-op. Her friend having the party was in that class also, so that may be why she chose this theme for the party. Besides this dress theme, it was also a tea party and the mom went all out making so many yummy dishes and teas. Some outside games were played as well. It was a really fun evening!
