We celebrated the first official day of summer in a big way yesterday with a poolside flip-flop tea party with our friends Emma and Lizzy and their mom, Stacey.
We are experiencing temperatures in the 90s in Alabama, so I scheduled our get-together for 4 o'clock. Our pool is shaded in late afternoon, so this is the most pleasant time to be outside.
I set our table before our company arrived with salad plates for us mommies and finger-food buckets for the children. For this relaxed gathering, we all ate and swam at our leisure.
And, of course, I couldn't send the girls home without party favors!
Swimming, playing and sharing tea with friends was a great way to begin our summer. I'll share more of the fun all week!
