Blossom turned seven a month ago today and one of the things that she currently wants to be when she grows up is a sweet shop owner. So we decided to make her dream come true a little early with a sweet shop themed birthday tea party, but then had to put everything on hold because of the COVID-19 pandemic and our island being in lockdown.
We didn’t think we’d be able to do the tea party until the end of summer at the earliest but thankfully the situation in Guernsey has improved much more quickly than expected and we were delighted to be able to hold Blossom’s belated tea party in her actual birthday month and before her new baby sibling arrives in June.
We didn’t have long to prepare but thankfully Blossom is easily pleased with fresh flowers and homemade cake and she loved playing sweet shop, dishing out sweets to her guests as they left.
It was a fun afternoon and a lovely reason to gather together after two long months of lockdown.
