This past week Lady Hiva and her Relief Society Presidency put together a tea party for their group at Church. It was a fun day. Lady Hiva and I prepared for a few weeks prior including going to consignment shops to find tea cups because we don't have any. That was not an easy experience in Utah because tea is not a big thing around LDS people! haha.
They day before Lady Hiva and got into our team creative mode. I sewed a banner using scraps of material from other projects while she baked chocolate macarons and sugar cookies.

Later, we decorated those cookies. That was really fun to do. Except for when one of the cookies I had decorated really detailed was ruined with a glob of icing from another cookie! I was so irritated! But it gave Lucky Dragon a cookie to each the next day. He was grateful.

|Making Cake Pops...they look like meatballs to me|
The day of, more preparation ensued! I baked red velvet cake pops. (those are SO unhealthy by the way). Lady Hiva finished her German chocolate macrons. We enjoy working with each other. Lucky Dragon likes to help us too. We have him read the recipe (helpful to learn fractions and reading). Lady Hiva made homemade raisin scones, strawberry jam and clotted cream (it took all night to make the clotted cream!)

We then went to help the team set up. They brought decorations from all their homes and by the time they were done it looked amazing!
