Have a Tea Party

We are lucky enough to have a great tearoom near where we live.  The Pickwick Society Tea Room in Frankfort, Illinois.  We called and they set up a wonderful party for our girls.  When we arrived, the tables were not set but they had plates, silverware, and teacup set out.  First we learned how to introduce ourselves to each other when you go to a party.  Then the girls set the tables the correct way.  After the table was ready it was time to sample the tea.  A lot of the girls never drink tea at home, so most of them really didn't like it.  Next they served a fruit platter with strawberries, watermelon, and grapes. The little tea sandwiches of cream cheese and jelly and grilled cheese were a big hit.  Finally desert was served on really fancy platters. There was a big selection of rice krispie treats, cookies and cupcakes.  After eating the girls had to clean up the tables. This was a fun idea and great way to learn manners.
