Tea Party Birthday Games

Every year I try to think of something different for my girls' birthday parties, when they turned 4 I did a Tea Party. I started several months before their party so I could shop around for the best prices on all of the items I needed.
The first thing I looked for was a good price on tea cups and saucers. I was able to find 24 of them for 1.99 each, which was perfect. I was only going to glue them together, write on the cup "save the date" and the day and time of the party. I then printed on colored construction paper a teapot with the specifics of the tea party, including the dress code. We asked all the ladies and girls to wear dresses and hats, if they had them, gloves. We asked the men to wear summer dress, light dress pants or dress shorts.
I found 12 white gloves for adults on the internet for $5. They were shear but they were perfect for any of the ladies who wanted to use them. I also found 12 men's hat's at Oriental Trading for $24 dollars. For just a few dollars I purchased fans from Oriental Trading also.
I made my girls their tea party dresses complete with two rows of ruffles in the material of their favorite colors.
