Outdoor Tea Party

The girls enjoyed an outdoor tea party — and had a blast pouring out little cups of water, stirring them up, and saying “cheers” before pretending to sip their tea. So civilized!!

They were so happy to bring their little tea set outdoors and with “real water”. For Clara, this was great fine-motor practice!

For Emily, this was non-stop smiling and lots of giggles! I love watching them have so much fun with imaginative play….

…and how something so simple can make them so happy!!

((Pst! In case you were wondering, this is the Melissa and Doug Bella Butterfly Pretend Play Tea Set — a treasured toy around here.))


  1. So sweet! They are adorable sisters! I’m thinking about buying that tea set from Melissa & Doug. There are so many out there– I’ve narrowed it down to two different sets. 😉

    • Thank you, Rebecca!! 🙂

      The girls do love this set! They have one other set that is ceramic, but I’ve found that they play with this one a lot more. It’s well-made and super-cute too!
