It's a Boston Tea Party!

I love a tea party, I love Halloween, and I love a clever play on words.  So, just imagine my thrill when I had the chance to put all of those things together!

When I heard our neighborhood was hosting a Halloween pet costume contest I jumped at the chance to enter my dog, Lincoln.  Lincoln is our family's rescued Boston Terrier.  As with most Boston Terriers he has a quirky personality, but we love him to pieces!

As I thought about what costume would best suit Lincoln's personality a few ideas came to mind. I wasn't set on any of my original ideas and I knew I wanted a home made costume and something totally unique.  Then the idea came to me!  Tea party, Boston Terrier, Boston Tea Party!  Perfection!  

My husband said he could easily make a tea table to attach to Lincoln's back.  We decorated the table with cute fabric and a plastic children's tea set.  It turned out super cute!

Lincoln looked quite dapper in his bow tie wearing his costume.  He was a hit at the costume contest!  Lincoln typically balks at getting his picture taken, but he posed nicely that day for one good shot.

It's always tea party time.
