Tea anyone?

Tea... I mean, lemonade, really.  We had a nice time.  The girls were great at my daughters tea birthday party.  They played so nice together.  We decorated hats, they played house with the doll house and then we had cake, opened presents and had tea (lemonade). 
 I told my parents that the party had came up so quickly that I really did not have time to decorate and prepare like I wanted to.  My younger daughters birthday always sneaks up on me because it is so soon after the Holidays.  My Father said to me, "when all is said and done, it will be about the people at the party, not the decorations."  I think my soul smiled at that moment because he is right.  Its funny how I can become so wrapped up in getting things perfect or even just done and lose sight of the things that are really important.
They all did a huddle around my daughter as she opened presents.  They were all so excited and their little smiles were truly a joy.  It was the best time!

If you are wondering about the cake.  I used two Wilton oval cake pans.  I put them together using frosting and straws.  The polka dots, spout, top and handle are made with fondant.  I made those a week beforehand so that they had time to harden.

That is just adorable! I love the teapot cake; it looks smooth and realistic and just perfect. My grandmother use to say there is nothing cuter than little girls dressing up like ladies.

What a cute cake. That alone is decoration enough. Those little girls will probably remember that cake for the rest of their life!
But I know what you mean about those birthdays right after the holiday. (or before)My daughter just had her sweet 16th on the 10th!
