I had planned to surprise her with a Belle Tea Party when she comes to visit us. Problem is – they don’t come to visit us!! When they come to Florida they don’t come to our house to stay with us, they go straight to Disney World for the week. Disney World is about two hours from our house. We are invited to go visit them there. This can be fun (and exhausting) but I would like to have our granddaughter come to our house to have memories of being in our home, etc! I’ve bought several things to do with her when they visit our house. She is now four years old, we haven’t had a tea party with her in our house yet.
So I'm having the tea party now and hope to someday be able to re-stage it if they will come here!
When I saw both of these Belle tea party tea sets, including the Belle as a child doll, I knew I wanted them for Elisabeth, who is a girly-girl, and enjoys girly things!
Mrs. Potts, the tea pot, and Chip, the tea cup has a place of honor as part of the centerpiece, along with the sugar bowl and faux sugar cubes.
A metal shabby chic plant stand is used for the table, with a cocktail napkin as the table cloth.
Mrs. PottsMrs. Potts is adorable, when you tip her to pour you push the knob on the lid and it makes a gurgling sound as you pour the “tea.” Belle sings several sweet songs.
The "plastic" tea slips just so far from the tea pot (then retracts back inside the spout when the tea pot is upright again!
Yellow handled flatware is used.
I took many pictures before I remembered my fresh yellow roses (a Valentine's gift from my husband!) They are perfect for the centerpiece!
Chip and Mrs. Potts ornaments are iridescent, the picture doesn't show the real beauty.
Invite you to join them
