    Lots of cookies, 'real' man size sandwiches, and offer them coffee if they prefer it. They'll be fine!

    We did this for my daughters birthday. everyone hade a fun time.  I made cupcakes in the large muffen pan and turned it into a tea pot I made one for each child that was going  to be there..  I also made some mini muffin size and made those into the cups.  The cakes turned out great and the kids had a blast dressing up and playing with her new tea set.

    I love the idea of the tea party, The men will tolerate the fancy party because it is for a child. I would have some coffee and a few of the he man sandwiches just for them. 

    My grand daughter is Jewish and her Bat Mitzvah theme is Alice in Wonderland tea party, I have been working for months trying to get decorations ready. There will be about 200 people at her tea party.  Her centerpieces are fancy tea cups filled with sweetheart roses, I am making a gift card box out of paper mache in the shape of a tree stump, complete with the white rabbit and a door at the base of the stump, there is also a red and white rose topiary being painted by cards and lots of other custom made items.
