Colonial Tea Party

To wrap up our reading of the American Girl Historical books about Felicity, we had a Colonial Tea Party.

I sewed (just learning how) matching dresses for my daughter and her doll.

The tea party was done as a co-op type event and the wonderful woman heading this up made each girl a mop cap to not only wear during the party, but to take home with them.
Reagan learned how to minuet and we have practiced this at home several times since the party.
Each girl had a place card on the table with some blank paper below it. They made quill pens and practiced writing with them.

The girls probably would have been happy doing this all day long! We had no idea how much fun they would have with this project. In fact, we ended up not doing one of the projects that could fit into another party since they wanted to keep writing!
Then it was Tea Time!!

We had a really great time and look forward to the next meeting (fiesta) that will will be having after finishing up Josefina!
