The weather has been horrible in Georgia. I mean it's nice to not have to deal with the usual summer drought, but with a toddler we have been having to stay in doors...a lot. So to spice up our usual routines, I decided to have a tea party thanks to Mommy Parties and Cadbury. I planned a big event than what in actuality happened...because of the rain. Not everyone came and we couldn't play some of the games plus I had more decorations, but the show must go on!
The first treat the girl had were Cucumber with Cream Cheese. They had never had the treat before, but they loved it!
The next thing we did was play a little game where we read each other's tea leaves. This one was more for the adults. All you do is heat water and pour intoa cup. Sprinkle in some tea leaves. After the tea has steeped, the leaves will begin to rest at the bottom of the cup. Drink and enjoy your tea. Then when you are finished, dump the remaining liquid onto the saucer or a napkin. Then, flip the cup up right to read the symbols left by the tea leaves. You may see something that represents a circle, number, letter, animal, or other things. You have to be creative and make up your own meaning to the symbols left by your tea leaves, but it is really fun to think of crazy things.
And of course you can't have a Cadbury High Tea Party without Cadbury Ice Cream Bars! We received four different varieties of ice cream bars to try: Cadbury® Royal Dark™ which is creamy Blue Bunny reduced fat vanilla ice cream dipped in thick, rich Cadbury Royal Dark chocolaty coating, Cadbury® English Toffee which is creamy Blue Bunny reduced fat toffee ice cream dipped in thick, rich Cadbury milk chocolaty coating with toffee pieces (and beyond my favorite), Cadbury® Caramello™ which is creamy Blue Bunny Reduced fat vanilla ice cream swirled with caramel sauce all dipped in thick, rich Cadbury milk chocolaty coating, and Cadbury® Vanilla Chocolate which is creamy Blue Bunny reduced fat vanilla ice cream dipped in thick, rich Cadbury milk chocolaty coating.
The girls were huge fans! We had a blast at our Cadbury High Tea Party.
What are some ideas you have to help cope for rainy days with toddlers?
