Tea Party “Memorable”

Blue Heron Grille Special Event

“My Friend & Me Tea” delighted little girls and their families on Sunday, September 21st. 

The Blue Heron Grille hosted nearly 100 people for a special afternoon Tea Party where little girls brought their dolls or teddy bears to this unique event.  Special chairs designed exclusively for our “special guests,” allowed the dolls and teddy bears to sit right at the table.  Their own mini cups, plates and spoons also offered imaginative play for the little ones during the tea.  Everyone enjoyed  the Chef’s buffet – from the beautiful tea sandwiches and pastries to the Crab Bisque and Scones.

Families also had the opportunity to visit the “Boutique” in our outdoor tent.  There, crafters, local businesses, and organizations provided crafts, games, information, services, and products.  Doll clothes, jewelry, books, toys, hats, and accessories were just some of the many items available.  Cecil Dancenter’s Cinderella and Tinker Bell were also there to greet the children.  Special thanks to all who participated!
