Mother/Daughter Tea & Croutons ---- 2012 London Olympics

Today is the start of the 2012 Summer Olympics in London, United Kingdom.

Good luck to all of the athletes this year! 
What better way then to celebrate with a good ole fashioned tea party. To be able to do that with my daughter, just her and I, even better! With Ben and Avi gone away at a boy's summer camp for the weekend, it was the perfect time.

Via is here to teach: How to be an Olympic Princess.

*Tip- Everything is red and pink.

1. Get Your Beauty Rest!
2. Make your nails all pretty and red!
3. Do Pink eye shadow (dark and light)
4. Don't forget to do mascara- PURPLE mascara!
5. Add sparkling red lipstick! 

6. Don't forget to add necklaces, bracelets, and more!

Via teaches: How to have a spot of tea and croutons!

1. Make your croutons (recipe later) or buy them.

2. Pick out your teas, we picked out Bigelow's English Teatime and Twinings of London's Herbal Revive Tea.

3. Brew your tea- we do it ole fashioned- tea pot and add tea to boiling water. Add to your tea pot set. We used Alex's Children's Tea Set to help set the mood.

4. Drink your tea and nibble on your croutons. Don't forget to wear purple gloves!

5. End the night, with one of my daughter's favourite book series- "Fancy Nancy". Tonight we will be reading "Fancy Nancy: Bonjour Butterfly."

6. Enjoy the opening ceremonies to the 2012 summer olympics on the telly, like we did! Great opening and can't wait for the games to come in the next 17 days!

Great post! I will not forget my purple gloves next time; that's what I've been missing all this time!

I love the "beauty rest" phase. Work hard, sleep hard, I say.
