They say you shouldn't hide away your good china and linens, but if you have, a party like this is the ideal time to break them out. Greer tells us about this lovely affair: Greer told me that she really wanted a "girl party" and this seemed to be the perfect opportunity to use the many beautiful linens and china handed down through my family.
The tables were set out with my Grandmother's beautiful linens, the china came from my Great Aunt and the little girls came from our neighborhood. The girls all brought their mothers, and everyone was dressed up. My husband dressed as a butler, using our son's Harry Potter glasses, and presented all the girls as they arrived.
Six beautiful and spunky little girls came to our house on a beautiful morning in August to drink tea (and lemonade) out of bone china, eat tea sandwiches, paint tea cups, pose for pictures with their mothers and swing on a rope swing.
