I was going to stay on the house style mode, but you know me, bouncing around and enjoying the randomness of my blog. You never know QUITE what I will come up with. :)
I am SO predictable in every other aspect of my life, I guess this is one area I really just go with the flow.
We had our Annual Sisters Tea Party last Sunday.
What an event it WAS !!! after roughly 15 years, I swear, they keep getting better and better.
We go all out!!! as fancy / gaudy and wild as we can get. Digging DEEP into our closets, to bring out the FLASHY stuff. It was originally started for our children. Now, those kids are having kids, so it is three generations down (no boys allowed!!!) , and EVERYONE has a “splendid” time. To see the little girls seeing everyone in all their goofiness, is nothing short of priceless.
This happens once a year, typically a wintery Sunday afternoon. My sister Kathy is the Hostess with the mostest, and does a BEAUTIFUL job!! even hauling her famous silk flowers out to decorate with, a vintage wheel barrow, and floral everything. It is definitely a garden party setting. She even recruited her husband to be the “waiter”. He was the ONLY boy allowed, and that was to do his job, and then stay in the other room!!! what a sport!!
We also had a style show (emcee by my VERY animated neice) Oh my!!! The entertainment was singing and dancing by two of the most UNinhibited neices, and a fun game of Tea Party charades.
Oh yes, and everyone has a special “version” of their names….and all take on a different accent for the occasion.
Thanks Queen Katalina for all your years of “Tea Parties” You never cease to amaze us!!! You deserve a royal crown of your own!!!!
Yes, we can make a fun family gathering out of just about ANYTHING!!!!!!!
