Rose Petal Tea Party

My beautiful bouquet of roses that my amazing husband delivered to me for Valentines day were very wilted this morning. Usually I would toss them in the trash, but the petals on my roses still looked pretty so I removed all the petals and put them in a basket to think of some kind of project to do with my girls like a “ROSE PETAL TEA PARTY”. I gathered our tea set, a glass bowl, some mason jars filled with clear and colored water and some wooden spoons. Before I let the girl come outside I scattered the rose petals in our yard for them to gather.

I didn’t have to explain what was going on once I gave them their basket and they had a look at the play invitation they were hard at work gathering the petals, pouring water, mixing, mushing and adding other natural materials to their rose petal tea concoction.

& there we sat in our front yard pretend sipping on our rose petal tea, which had a wonderful fragrance I must add.

We can’t wait till it warms up even more for more outdoor adventures, but for now we anticipate a snow storm coming in tomorrow.
