Setting the Table for Tea
In between each course of our tea, while the servers refilled the trays, we had a game (or two) for the girls. The first game we played was loaned to us by the older Little Flowers’ group, and was very fun!
The object of the game was to see, while blindfolded, who could set the table for tea correctly. To make it a bit more challenging, many of the card stock images were the same size and shape — either circle or rectangles. (I had to print out a couple missing pieces, so here are the links to a few of the images we used: Sugar Bowl, Creamer, Plate/Bowl, Tea Cup — there was also a fork, spoon, and floral centerpiece. )
I love how Chiquita stacked them all on top of each other… Too cute!
It was so cute to watch all the girls try and figure out WHAT went WHERE! After they finished, each girl got to choose a prize from the prize basket.
Prayer of Mothers
Father in heaven, grant me the grace to appreciate the dignity which you have conferred on me. Let me realize that not even the Angels have been blessed with such a privilege—to share in your creative miracle and bring new Saints to heaven. Make me a good mother to all my children after the example of Mary, the Mother of your Son. Through the intercession of Jesus and Mary I ask your continued blessings on my family. Let us all be dedicated to your service on earth and attain the eternal happiness of your kingdom in heaven. Amen.
