Lets Par-Tea With Mackenzie Childs & Lilly

Lilly Dot stayed a week with us, Nana and Papa Paul. She asked for another tea party.  We are having a Mackenzie Child's tea party in the Breakfast room.
Lilly loves to pose as you can see in the photos. Lilly Dot is wearing the new black and white shorts I bought. She loves her little MK purse.

Such a diva!

I am using a black and white checked tablecloth with my Crown Linen placemats.  A yellow woven placemat is next followed by a Mackenzie Child's dinner plate.  I topped it off with a yellow and white checked plate and a darling MC teapot napkin ring.
Mackenzie Child's Courtly Check is taking center stage.

Fresh strawberries, Lilly's favorite, ham and cheese sandwiches and Mickey Mouse egg salad.
Lilly's hair was recently layered and tinted blue around her face. She loves to swim, so the blue faded quickly.

The poses are Lilly's ideas.

Strawberry cupcakes with rice Krispies treats and assorted cookies are for dessert.
Lilly is a very picky girl.  She doesn't like chocolate.  Hamburgers are eaten with out any condiments and no bun. She loves Cherrios the first thing in the morning.
I must say it's challenge to feed her.

All in all, we had a good time, shopping, swimming, a tea party and watching Nailed it in bed at night.

    Linda, this is Jeanie at Marmelade Gypsy -- for whatever reason, I can't sign in with the google account on the drop down so I'm anonymous!
