"If instead of a gem, or even a flower, we should cast the gift of a loving thought into the heart of a friend, that would be giving as the angels give." ~ George MacDonald
Welcome friends to Tea Time Tuesday!
Anytime we visit, Brent almost always has a creature of some kind in a jar or aquarium. His father still brings home toads and other four legged critters to his boys when he's out and about. Some things never change! My DIL is learning a lot!
Brent also likes hockey....
They had a hockey themed birthday party for him on Saturday and his dad baked the birthday cake. As you can see, it is his favourite hockey team, Montreal Canadians. I must say, I'm impressed that my son made this himself!
Here is Brent blowing out the candles while his mom and two friends look on.
A picture of the guys celebrating with Brent. Brent is the one with the red hockey jersey on. His older brother Cameron is wearing the white jersey, and his younger brother is in front holding the hockey stick in front of his sweet little face. They all look like they're having a blast.
So, in keeping with Brenty's birthday today, I have a tea which is inspired, not by hockey, but by creatures. But do not fear, they are the cute kind!
Bees and butterflies, dragonflies and ladybugs, all adorn the Maxwell and Williams china. I really like the shape of this cup. The trim is like that which is on the teapot I shared last week although they are made by two different companies.
Each piece is sprinkled with flowers and edged with gold as well.
Dragonflies also adorn this cute cloche which has a chocolate cupcake candle beneath it.
And since most little guys like chocolate, as well as most grandmothers, we are having chocolate cupcakes, brownies, and chocolate chip oatmeal cookies with our tea. The cookie jar is full, so please help yourself!
The tea table is strewn with smarties to make it more festive for our special little guy.
A cup of cranberry juice for you, Brent, and a cuppa tea for Nanny!
Happy Birthday Brent!
