Witch tea party and French cookies i grew up eating in France

I made this very easy tea party for the kids. I wanted them to know some of the cookies i grew up eating in France.


Joining the Witch party at Frosted Petunias


They can't wait...Playing already...


We had lots of cookies and cupcakes from the store.
I used some fabric for the center of the table. Easy.


The cupcakes have witches' hats


We had hot coco. It is getting cooler here...


Black and white Toile China


Here are the cookies from my childhood:

LU. Pim's
World table. Rasberry tartlette
Milano melts. Dark classic creme.

Happy Halloween!

What a nice tea party, and it's good that they got to see the desserts you had growing up. I love traditions, and I'm so glad my mom and dad passed theirs down to me.
