Western Tea Party

Yee haw! Recently we hosted a tea party for all my fave buckaroos! I grabbed my tutu, shined up my cowperson boots, and topped it all off with my sheriff’s hat.  As Leah said: we had a rootin tootin tea! Take a look at some of the pics.

The little cowpokes that came were dressed so adorably I almost screamed.  The book, Cowboy Camp was so fun: it’s a bout a little feller who goes to camp but doesn’t like the food and is allergic to the animals but somehow manages to defeat the bad guy (Black Bart. Not real happy with that name but that’s another conversation)!

My partner, Leah, is so creative and I had a durn good time practicing my Texas accent and trying not to slip and fall in my boots. How DO cowboys walk in those things? My dogs were barking at the end of the party!

I know y’all are dying to see me in my get up, aren’t ya?

Here t’is.

See ya’ll next time!

Tea Parties @Townebookcenter Enchanted Woodland Tea

We had so much fun at this Enchanted Woodland Tea party.  All the kids in attendance were related somehow so they were more at ease than our usual partygoers which opened them up for more fun!

Let’s take a look:

Tea Parties in January @Townebookcenter Superheros!

Winter is here and I’m never too far from a book, a hot cup of coffee, or a cup of tea! on the weekends, I’m still busy busy busy hosting tea parties for my young bookish friends.

One fun day we hosted a birthday party for a super fantastic little guy we met the Grinch Tea Party in November. This lil guy was turning 5 and wanted to be Darth Vader. So we whipped up our magic and everyone came as Superheroes or Supervillans!

It was so much fun: we made picture frame crafts, played “Guess That Holiday Tune”, and stuck the 12 Days of Christmas on the tree.

The best surprise of all was when Santa arrived!

The kids didn’t make a peep while he read Twas the Night Before Christmas“!

I even got my picture taken with Santa!

I love all things Fancy Nancy because she and I are Francophiles. Every situation is made better by speaking French, non?

Book Themed Halloween Party!

I’ve been very busy hosting parties lately. Just recently we hosted a Witches and Warlocks tea party! Everyone came dressed in costume, even a few parents; kids love it when parents participate in dress up. So do I!

We had so much fun at the party. The book I read  (see lower right) is called I Want to be a Witch by Ian Cunliffe.

We tossed potions into a witches hat, picked creepy bugs and other gross things to put into the tea, and made a delightful owl craft.  Oh and how could I forget pin the nose on the pumpkin?

What a great way to combine Halloween and books!

What is your favorite Halloween book?

Find Your Tribe at a CHIMA party!

We recently hosted a Chima party for an incredibly sweet little guy turning 7. Tired of all the princess parties, we jumped at the chance to try something different, enter the CHIMA!

I am now well versed in Chima lore and am certain that before coffee, I belong to Crunket’s tribe of crocodiles.  How fun is Chima in that there are roles for boys AND girls? Wondering if I could get someone to make me some cool Eris wings for when I need a break from my fairy wings?

But I digress. Check out these fun pics from a super fun Chima party!

During the Chima party, we drank sweet Chi (tea!), searched for missing orbs, played pin the sword on Laval, guess the Chima character, and decorated our swords. During the manners lesson we had to reinstate our “No Weapons At The Table” rule like we did with the pirates.

It was fun.  What have you done for your fave Chima kid?
