Pretty as a Princess Tea Party

Yesterday, a very hot July day, we welcomed the Mermaid Princess and Rapunzel to the herb gardens of Sweet Remembrances and The Rosemary House for a delightful afternoon tea and an entertaining visit from both princesses. Little girls dressed in purples and pinks and ocean blues gathered under the pavilion to enjoy a summertime activity. The tables were set with a seaside theme, and colorful cups quietly announced the purpose of the day.

Mothers and daughters, grandmothers and aunts, great nieces, too, were offered hot tea or pink lemonade before the first course was served. Once everyone had a beverage, plates of Tangled Fresh Fruit were served with Scuttle's Almond Cream. After the fresh fruit, three tiered trays laden with tea party treats were presented to each group of guests.

  • Queen Arianna's Favorite Cream Scone with Sweet Cream.

The most popular tier featured

While the young girls were enjoying their tea and treats, the Princesses from My Fantasy Party visited each table and shared stories and laughter about their adventures. A craft was also shared by the princesses. Singing, 'Princess Says', and photos with the princesses rounded out the day.
