an anne of green gables tea party...


the girls' friend turned eight years old a few days ago.  and sometimes, something is just worth going all out for.  they were ecstatic to put their tea clothes on {seen above in the header} and attend "An Anne of Green Gables Tea Party." 



to make it even fancier, my friend {mama of birthday girl} is from brazil so she has the most beautiful accent.  i often ask her to say my name just so i can hear it.  she said to the girls, "the mamas are here to serve you today!" and the squeals followed!!  


they had fancy dessets, brazilian food, raspberry cordial, a three legged race with braided hair and they got to paint their own green gables.


what a wonderful way to celebrate something and someone special!  in fact, the birthday girl said to us moms, "i would recommend you reading books to your girls like anne of green gables and little women...it's really fun!"  and i couldn't agree more! 

happy birthday!!
