My toddler was invited to her first tea party a couple of months ago. It was such a fun birthday party idea. The "hostess" was none other than Mary Poppins herself! I didn't get a good picture, but the birthday girl was dressed up in the white dress and hat that Mary Poppins wore during the "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious" scene.
Mary Poppins brought a trunk of costumes for the other kids to try on as she painted faces.
They played several games that were related to the movie. First they each carried a spoon holding a packet of sugar. Whoever kept their spoonful of sugar in place the longest won. Then they got little horse sticks to ride around like the carousel horses in the movie. Mary Poppins played the carousel scene on the TV, and whenever the movie stopped the kids had to freeze.
The children had a spot of tea and adorable cupcakes. And Mary Poppins reminded everybody to mind their manners. So cute!
