The Tea Party

So I went a little crazy. For her birthday, Lily knew exactly how she wanted to celebrate and that was with a princess tea party. For as long as I can remember, I have resisted the whole princess thing...you know the whole being rescued by a man, doves flying and pink everywhere. It never sat well with me. Little by little though, I'm seeing that no matter what I say or how I try to divert from it, the princess thing comes up. Even when Lily plays with her dolls, I would ask "So is this girl a doctor or maybe an engineer?" and the answer is always "No, she's a princess." I was more than happy to dive in to creating our first ever tea party. For years, I had been surrounded with all things boy...dinosaurs, trains, cars and being that this was going to be our first big girly bash, it had to be awesome. Off to the thrift store I went...not to mention a few stops at Michaels, Home Goods (my happy place) and Party Depot.
