If you have a little girl in your life you will not want to miss an opportunity to treat her to afternoon tea in the Palm Court at the Plaza Hotel in New York City.
My little girl is all grown up now but this is what she used to look like getting ready for a trip to the city! 5 going on 30! It is no wonder she is a full blown New Yorker now, having spent many a special afternoon pretending to be Eloise at the Plaza. I must confess I was a distracted, struggling single mom whose attention was focused on my son who had significant special needs so my little girls really raised themselves. This little girl in particular never got as much of her mom as she wanted or deserved but we had some fun days now and then and she has grown into an accomplished, compassionate young woman! I take no credit.
If you know of a little girl who needs some extra attention why not introduce her to the ceremony of afternoon tea?
Tea time musts for little girls:
strawberry and cream cheese sandwiches
chocolate covered strawberries
assorted tea cups
feather boas and glitter shoes
