A Tea Party with Scooby Doo!

Miss Phoebe and I had a tea party the other night ... playing a Scooby Doo movie in the background!   Phoebe set the table with our Johnson Brothers Eternal Beau.   We put everything on the coffee table, so we didn't have to miss any of the movie!




Now, you might think this food isn't really tea party quality ... but when you are 5, it is just perfect ... everything you love!


We had "dogs in a blanket", but Phoebe only ate the "dogs" and gave the real dogs the "blankets"!   She didn't want me to take a picture of her plate, showing the dogs!   We had grape tomatoes with some yummy string cheese on crackers, cranberry goat cheese, warm cheese dip with tortilla chips dusted with lime,  oatmeal cookies and some of our Valentine chocolates!

Oh, yest ... and Earl Gray tea!   That is one of our favorites!   I'll post this with Potpourri Friday and Home Sweet Home, so make sure you click through to see the other parties.  Take a look at my home page, too ... to see all my videos and other posts!
