Teddy Bear Picnic: A Child's Party For Grown Ups

Just the other day I had a nostalgic moment of wanting to be a child again when my first Blythe doll arrived in the mail.


I remember having lots of time on my hands, mulling over the decision which toy should I play with now.

How about having a Teddy Bear Tea for grown ups? As ___ says, a teddy bear tea for grownups can both be poignant and enchanting.

Invitations: Teddy bear stationary. (oh how much I love those english bears!)

Note to Guests: Bring their favorite teddy bear or stuffed animal like show and tell.

Decorations: A few teddy bears and flowers as centerpiece, children's books piled in an easy accessible corner.

Set out a few seating places for some teddy bears (which was what I used to do as a child - I would have tea time with my teddy bears).

Tea Party For Two

Who says you a tea party cannot be just you and a special someone?

Instead of heading out to the cafes and restaurants where there is no privacy and waiters will be coming over often to take another order or sending you the bill, the very restaurant way of asking you to leave.

Set a table for two using your best place mats, tea pot and cuts, place a flower or two as the centerpiece and use little plates to display an assortment of tea party foods so that you and your friend will have a ball selecting which one to eat next.Play some jazz music in the background, open the windows wide, and enjoy the afternoon tea for two!

Two tea choices (loose tea leaves type)
