Since this was a spur-of-the-moment activity, I didn't have any fancy tea party foods. Nonetheless, I pulled together several different items that were on-hand, and took the time to lay them out nicely so that it felt like a special occasion. The kids placed flowers on the table and set our places with cups, saucers, and spoons.
More Tea, Please!
My kids delighted in pouring their own tea and adding in milk and sugar (or sucanat). We sweetened our second glasses of tea with maple syrup, and it was delicious!

Treasury of Children's Poetry during the tea party, and had fun trying to remember some of the poems without looking at the pages. My 3-year-old astounded me by reciting most of a poem he only heard one night a few weeks ago. My daughter relished reading some of her favorite poems aloud for everyone.
