Japanese Tea Party

Lily requested a Japanese tea theme for her birthday party this year. Lucky us! I have a sweet friend who grew up in Japan as a missionary kid. We had as much fun planning as we did partying!

Mary Jane wrote each of the girls' names in Japanese, and I found some yummy looking Japanese candy at the local asian market. Chopsticks, a notebook covered in Chinese fabric (close enough for our purposes!), and we had goodie bags.

All the girls (but Miss Sarah) having tea and snacks. We had a combination of Japanese treats and American ones. All the girls were amazingly brave to try new things!

Japanese Tea Party looks very enjoyable. I am grateful to you for sharing these incredible photos here from this bash. My wife’s birthday is coming and I am going to throw a surprise rustic themed party for her at one of her favorite New York Event Venues. Excited for the bash!
