A Nursery Feast

Our two girls shared the same room up until last weekend when snow induced cabin fever inspired some change. The playroom annex to their bedroom is now Rebecca's room, separated from her big sister's by a dust ruffle-turned-curtain. Rebecca has had a hard time sleeping by herself (the curtain might as well be a brick wall!), but last night we got her room just right and she felt comfortable enough to throw a party to celebrate. "A Feast" she called it.
I was invited to partake of plastic donuts, pizza, a plum and various green and yellow vegetables. And of course, there was tea!
The most impressive part was that Rebecca cleared her "table" (under bed storage container holding all of her sister's hand-me-down Brat dolls) and put the dishes in her play kitchen's sink, without me telling her to. What a treat to put a child to bed in a tidy bedroom!
I am inspired to tackle the mess in my studio now and I am looking forward to many more feasts in Rebecca's (clean) room.

A clean room?!?! Don't know much about that here! I love tea parties with my girls. (I have 5 girls so there has been a fair share of them). My two youngest probably play tea party less than the others did. My now 11 y/o would get a guest in her room, close the door and seriously would not let them leave her tea party. One time Grandpa was stuck in there a long time! Your little girl is a doll!

Plum and pizza - my favourite!

Rebecca is a sweetheart and throws a great tea party - she'll go far in life.

ps word verification is 'plate' - seems particularly appropriate!

loved your post! your daughter is a cutie!!!! This post brought back to mind all the tea parties my daughter had when she was little! how fun. then,it made me remember when I was working as an R.N(7pm-7am..did that for 20+ years!) and my daughter was about 2 and wanted him to paint her fingernails and toenails a bright red! Well, he being the kind of Dad that would do anything..did1 He said he worked so hard to put it on nice on her little fingers and toes!! Once he had finished,with great pride I must add, she burst into tears,screaming"OFF,OFF..BLOOD!!! OFFFFFFFFFF"! He had to get if off quick ..imagine..red polish and a hysterical 2 yo..what a visual!!!
have a happy day!

A room rearranging is always an occasion for new play ideas .... Hmmmmm ..... That will probably happen to you when you tackle your studio :)

Happy tea day!

So much fun! I've eaten my fair share of plastic pizza, sipped "air tea" and raved about my magnificent chef!

A child.
I have those.
Mine a bigger though and can do their own wash and things, so I like them better now.

Their rooms don't get any cleaner.

Happy tea day.
Xx,
Amy - who doesn't hate children (I used to be one), I just enjoy them more if I've had wine. Not tea.
