Christmas Tea Party for Three

Nothing like a Christmas tea party with a four year old and her Grammy and this Grandma-to-Be (still trying to figure out what to be called...I like the name YaYa, but somewho doesn't who is a very important part of the picture). We met at the City Nest. All the best things were pulled out of storage...the pink crepe-paper tree with the words I'm Dreaming of a Pink Christmas on the star on top, two crystal pedestal cake plates, the charming beehive teapot, the glass luncheon plates and teacups. Add to that some muffins, cookies, cheese (in cut-out shapes of snowmen and hearts) and, of course, layered lemon curd cake.
Note that Ava is wearing her best pearls.
Ava learned about the pepparkakor tradition of breaking the cookie with a gentle tap of the index finger on the center of the cookie. If it breaks into three pieces, the wish you make will come true!
Looks like Ava will have her wish granted. As I watch my sister and her Grand-daughter, I think of the one we'll soon have joining our family. I can't wait! We're going to have plenty of tea parties!

Timi, it's going to be so sweet to have a baby girl...and by the way I like both of your chosen names!

This tea party would beat any party idea in American Girl magazine. They should just send their photo crew to your city nest and their writers to you for ideas!! Wish I coulda joined y'all; I'll never grow out of fun girl stuff.
