Valentine Tea Party

Pancakes for breakfast again :)

Selena asked if she could host a Valentine's Party for her friends and family.  We discussed what she would have to do (invitations, decorations, food, favors, cleaning, etc), and discussed a budget ($25).  She went to Walmart and the Dollar Tree to pick up items for the party (ingredients for food, plates, napkins, plastic ware, favors).  Of Selena’s $25 budget, she spent $20.76!  With her extra money, she helped pay for lunch for Grandma, Great Grandma, Mommy, and Abby.  A couple of the items were left over from last year and a great little company called Hug A Bug Ink donated the teas.

The party was a huge success!  She had so much fun planning and having her party.  We didn't take pictures, but we had a candy heart bingo game to play.  Thank you Selena for planning such a fun party!
