Tablescaping - Not just for grown-ups!

I had the most delightful time Tablescaping today with my 3 year old daughter, Emma. She decided we needed to have a Tea Party in her room and I thought "Hey, it's Tablescape Thursday", hosted by Susan at Between Naps on The Porch. Please stop by and visit all the fabulous tablescapes there today.

I found this little silver tray at a yard sale for $1.00. I fell in love with it and knew I would be able to use it for something one day. I always encourage my friends that if they see something that whispers sweet nothings to them, BUY IT!

Emma has a wonderful playhouse bed her father built for her 2nd Birthday. We started out with a Toddler bed in the downstairs and it was a very easy transition from crib to bed. She has since graduated to the loft bed and now has the perfect kitchen for all her entertaining.

Bear Bear and Bitty Baby were excited to receive an invitation to such a lovely Tea.
No Tea Party would be complete without a Silver Bell to ring, when running low on Tea and Crumpets!

"Would you like 1 lump or 2, my dear?"
Please note the Target birds that were a gift to me from my fabulous friend and blogging buddy at Sharons Chickens In The Mist.

Thanks for having Tea with us, have a blessed day!
Jill & Emma


  1. OH, that is so precious. I remeber many, many tea parties with my girls. Blessings to you!

  2. This is so sweet and special. You're teaching your little girl how to be a real lady! Happy TT to you and Emma!

  3. I do so hope you will be putting one of these lovely pictures in a frame (silver, of course :) What a special memory for Emma! Treasure every second--they grow up fast! I'll be back to see you!

  4. Very sweet. Never too young to learn how to create a beautiful table. Just lovely!

  5. Oh! how that brings back memories. My little girl is now 26 years old. We still have tea time once in a while, and we are best friends. You have a beautiful little girl. The table setting is so precious.

  6. What a precious, precious tea party, and your little girl is a living doll! Love her dress and hair bow! The table has been set to perfection, and I adore your little silver bowl you found... great buy, BTW! Thanks for sharing this lovely tea with us. It's the perfect way to end a rainy day on a ray of sunshine!

    Happy Tablescape Thursday...

  7. Oh Jill, I would say Emma, Bear Bear and Itty Baby all had a wonderful time. You are such a precious Moma. Someday Emma will look back and say Moma you were so much fun when I was growing up, we had the best of times together. You are giving her memories Jill, just like I did Heidi, my daughter, and today she is passing that torch on to her (2) daughters Destiny and Isabel. It will come back around to you. Your precious Emma will do BIG things because of the precious love that you show her every day. I hope you frame a picture of this day for her to hang in her room. It is absolutely precious. Thank you for stopping by and loving my Lemon Tree story. I will cheerish that forever. God Bless you Jill. Country Hugs, Sherry

  9. How sweet! Tea parties with daughters are just the best - good conversation shared over a cuppa tea and goodies never gets dull. She will grow up to love tablescaping too!


  10. What a wonderful party. Thank you for sharing with us. Your granddaughter is precious and sets a beautiful table.

  11. What a special memory in the making! Taking tea with friends, be it human or bear, is momentous. How wonderful that you are passing this tradition down to your daughter! Be sure to pull these photos out when your daughter becomes a mama. Traditions are meant to be passed...
