High Tea at the Banff Springs Hotel


In an effort to keep both myself and the girls focused - just a little - this summer I brought in the Summer Fun Jars. The idea comes from Merrilee at Mer Mag. Hers are vastly more pretty than ours are, and a brilliant use of Pinterest.  Function rules here with my impatient girls. Two jars: To Do and To Make. Six slips of paper in each. Sunday night pull to plan for the week.

This week our To Do draw was High Tea at the Banff Springs Hotel. A fancy dancy tea party, complete with tiaras, sparkly nail polish, high heels (for me), and a tower of treats. Plus, a change of scenery and an adventure through a castle.







(Future blogger? She's drawing our food.)



Making up a game because the Croquet set was nowhere to be found.


Grandma was lucky to join us for our trip.

So fun! You live near enough to just drop in for tea? I just stayed there in May for a few days (from the Fraser Valley, BC.) My girls would love it too!

What a wonderful treat for everyone! And how lucky you are to be so near Banff- gorgeous! Will have to wait a couple more years to attempt this with mine perhaps at the King Eddie in Toronto!
