A Grandaughters October Birthday Tea Party

October is so beautiful and I glory in the gorgeous changing colors of autumn which are now in abundance everywhere I look.  There is nothing quite like the beauty of fall.
 And this time last year I gave many events. One was for my
7 year old gandaughter
Emma's birthday party. She wanted a tea party of course.

These photos were taken before I started my blog and with an old camera. The pumpkin plates I bought several years ago on clearance after Halloween for a buck a piece. I wish I had bought more at that price. And the pumpkin cups came in a box of sets of four and I bought a total of a dozen. Again I wish I had bought more. I use them ALOT during the fall season.

The grands LOVE our little Halloween Tree. Each year they like to  add to its branches. Of course it's on center stage with the birthday treats.
There were lots of fun treats including these darling spider ring cupcakes.
My daughter made this adorable teapot birthday cake and her little Emma was delighted!!
Among the MANY FUN activities, each little girl frosted and decorated their own pumpkin cookies. This one was made by Emma's favorite Aunt Carolyn.
Each little girl got to take home her very own tea cup filled with treats and a little gift bag for them to make their own 'smore' ghosts.
The party was deemed a success by all who attended but especially by our beloved little birthday girl Emma.
THANKS for joining me for our little tea party soiree. I will be showing more tables and treats before the months over. So please stay tuned.

So, so cute!!!! It must be nice to have a girly-girl for a granddaughter. Mine is very tomboyish, and I don't get to do anything like this. Sigh! :-( I like the idea of the s'mores take-home favor. Very creative! You and I both have GOT to learn to buy stuff when we see it at such a great price. I kick myself over and over when I think of the things I SHOULD HAVE bought 20 of but only got 8! Hindsight is 20/20, isn't it!? Have a good weekend!!!
