After months of trying to figure out WHERE to go and weeks of trying to coordinate WHEN to go, we finally made a reservation at the Mad Hatter in Anoka. Sharon had been before, so at least she knew what we were doing. Side note: somebody looking for a business adventure should open a Tea House in the west metro! How is there not something like this in the Minnetonka area? Weird.

Korri loved all the details. She loved that all the teacups were different. And we loved getting her outfit together. I'd gotten her a new dress a few weeks ago, which was perfect for this occasion. We added white tights (it is still chilly outside!), her white sweater (that now looks dingy next to her dress!) and a white cami for underneath (she has issues with fabric on her poor dry skin). She asked me if she could have white gloves for tea! And since I found some for less than $10 on Amazon, I quickly agreed. How cute that she knew gloves were appropriate for tea?!?! And Daddy had put her hair in a side ponytail, which was perfect and elegant.
What a great afternoon with great friends! It also inspired me to possibly host an afternoon tea at my house. I mean, it really wouldn't be hard to do and would be fun to get dressed up and use the fancy china! We'll see :)
