Sweet 16...oh wait! I mean 6

On June 25th this pretty girl turned SIX years old!

This year she requested a TEA PARTY.

With REAL tea cups, not fake ones.

Thankfully, Tai Pan did not disappoint and I was able to find REAL tea cups.

In the clearance section even!

Kennedy approved of them and the party planning began...

FIRST....the invitations

Put your etiquette to the test and join us in your Sunday best. Have with us a cup of tea and celebrate the 6th birthday of our dear Kennedy.

Next....on the big day we decorated the table with sandwiches, fruit, cheese, pink lemonade, licorice, carrots, ranch, and of course, CUPCAKES.

Each girl had a reserved seat at the tea table

Starting with first things first....decorating our party hats for the tea party of course
all help make the look complete

All ready to put our etiquettes to the test

Lunch was TRULY delicious!

Lunch was followed by etiquette 101....walking properly while balancing books on their heads
Chin up
Head straight forward
shoulders back
back tall
walk slow

Then on to opening presents
The girls played "pass the tea pot."
Whoever, had the tea pot when the music stopped got to give Kennedy their gift for her to open.

Blowing out the candles!!








Happy Birthday our dear Kennedy, who lights up our life and is one of the most fantastic people I have ever met. How blessed I am to be her mother. She has taught me more than I could ever teach her and she is such an example of Christ like love. She is just so beautiful both inside and out and a true, true princess.

That looks like a super fun party! Kennedy is a sweetheart and I'm glad she bring so much happiness to your lives. I know she will be a great big sister to Kamryn through the years. Hope this year is a great one for your sweet 6-year-old!
