Growing up girls would often whisper to their friends or bears, "Let's have a tea party." Yesteryears I had many a tea party with a bear and a brother. Today, we still love to pretend and have tea parties. Playing the role of a grownup while having tea is special for development, the imagination, little manners, it also nurtures friendships and teaches proper etiquette while one takes part in the "tasting of tea." What more could a little girl dream for?
Have your little girl's Birthday with friends and family gathered for a fancy Victorian Tea Party! The girls come in dresses and borrow one of our hats and beads from the tea room for a high tea. What better way to celebrate her next birthday then to dress up, have fun, giggling, learning a little tea etiquette and then take part in a photo shoot. Girls will sip tea from fine China cups, while listening to tea renditions.
Our Birthday Parties Consist Of:
Our parties are a traditional afternoon tea in a safe and supervised area, with tea sandwiches, tea breads, sweets, scones, jam & cream. Your choice of a pot of tea/milk/juice (each). Parents are always welcome to be guests and have a high tea. Send out RSVP invitations, making sure each one is marked with our address and phone number (minimum 4 party guests max to 12 guests). For an additional fee we offer a scrapbooking craft. Everything is homemade and beautifully arranged.
I had the privilege of hosting a most recent Red Hat Tea, I can say the ladies do have fun in their hats. These ladies meet on a regular monthly basis, with other members, and friends and head out for a monthly meet up. This Red Hat outing took place a Grandma's Afternoon Tea Room. The ladies wore beautiful red hats, purple feather boas, frilly purple stockings, red satin laced gloves, the shoes, the hats & clutches, and lots of beads.
Laughing & giggling filled the room, as they reminisced the details of their last get-together, each taking their turn greeting with respect, care and love for each other. They listen attentively to each other with genuinely interests in what each lady had to say. They exchanged and updated each other on new information, family and friends and laughed between sipping tea never spilling a drop. I truly believe, one common thread, "a red hat", connected them as friends, family, sisters and close kindred spirits.
I listened as I prepared the final touches on their tea cakes and sandwiches, the stories they tell. I want to be one. I wanted to put on a hat and sit at their side. Perhaps it was because it took me back to yesteryears, memories of my grandmother, or was it just that they are a group of ladies with invested red power communicating and sharing special times with friends? It was a special day for all and a wonderful afternoon tea they said they would never forget.
Our Red Hat Tea Parties consist of:
I had the pleasure to host a baby shower tea party in the tea room recently and guests had a lot of fun playing games, chatting, giggling and getting caught up on traditions. The tea room can accommodate up to 20 guests. This is a perfect time to invite family and friends to a worry free celebration. We have our tea room theme decorated with streamers, balloons and party favours. Our baby shower craft will be a sure winner, each guest will scrapbook a baby page then sign their page they made. The pages are returned to the album and the guest of honour has a keepsake for mom and baby to enjoy for years to come.
