  2. I have a little girl who loves tea and wants to own a tea shop when she grows up. Tea parties represent how important it is to remind ourselves to slow down, sip delicious tea, nibble on a little sandwich and enjoy conversation. :)

  5. Steam rises from a cup of tea
    and we are wrapped in history,
    inhaling ancient times and lands,
    comfort of ages in our hands.

  10. A tea party is what being a little girl is all about. Something we treasure and never outgrow. Chiming and gentle clanging of delicate tea cups, pinkies up, white gloves, lace, scones and berries all complete with little girl giggles.

  11. I love watching my little girls dress up...they are only young once and I want to remember it always. What better way to do that than taking them away for a while and letting them be young and I get to participate with them. Best thing about being a mom is being able to spend time with my girls.

  14. When I was in 2nd grade, my teacher was from England. All year long, we practiced little steps in improving our etiquette and table manners, in preparation for a special tea party at the end of the year. She even taught us about a different classical music composer each week. I LOVED learning the fancy culture at such a young age! The tea party in the Spring was an exciting event! We all came dressed in our best, and it was the first time I saw the boys in my class as little gentlemen who were using their manners. I saw them in a new light. :) I wish I could thank my teacher for the experience, and for opening our minds to new, fun, cultural traditions.
    I always think of this experience when someone mentions tea parties. :)

  16. I love tea parties because no matter what your age you can be transported back to a time of dreaming, fairy tales, and make believe. A time when everything was simple and innocent and you saw the world through rose-colored glasses! I have such fond memories of going to tea with my mom and grandma when I was a young girl and would like to create the same for my daughter. :)

  19. My daughter and her cousins came to one of the tea parties at Georgell Doll Shop last year and they still talk about it today. My daughter borrowed a doll that day because she didn't have one of her own, so now that she has her own doll, she keeps asking when she can take "Grace" to a Tea Party. :)

  20. My daughter is all about dolls and parties, everyday it is one of her dolls birthday. What a fun memory that would be with her favorite doll and friends.

  21. We love the Tiny Tea Parties. We came last year for my daughter's birthday with my mom and grandma who's an avid doll collector. My grandma brought her baby doll from her childhood and my daughter thought that was so cool!
    My daughter wants to have a Tiny Tea Party with her friends this year, all of whom are American Girl Doll fans. We can't wait!

  22. What a great way to send an afternoon with the grandchildren. We have talked about doing this for some time. What a GREAT mothers gift. I'd love to win.. Pick me

  23. I love that somehow a tea party makes time stop and keeps my sweet girl little. There is so much growing up going on and a tea party somehow manages to make time stop, if only for an hour, for her and for me.

  24. My favorite memory as a child was when my mom threw me a tea party birthday party. We got to dress up like our moms and bring our baby dolls to the party. We ate finger sandwiches and put olives on our fingers. She taught us all how to drink out of our tea cup with our pinky in the air. My friends to this day say it was their favorite party. :) I now have a little girl who is 4 and she owns about 4 tea sets. I bought her first set there at Gardner Village when she turned 2. This would be such a fun experience to relive my childhood again with her. Moms are invited right? ;)

  26. This looks so fun! I have four little girls who love to dress up and play together. They are always putting on plays and singing and dancing. Being invited to a tea party would be so much fun for them.

  28. We love tea parties at the doll shop! It has become a tradition especially when we have family here from out of town. The best part is my daughter smiling with eyes sparkling because she is having so much fun!

  29. I love Georgell. Dolls. I remember my grandma Nellie Robbins always talking to Lucille way into the night planning the doll store she would have. Here it is, we were able to bring my grandmother before she died to come see the dream com true. I tell my little girl about Lucille and grandma. It is our Disneyland to come to Georgell Dolls. My little girl would love a tea party.

  31. A tea party is one of the few activities that is enjoyed by girls and ladies of all ages. We have our first tea parties as little girls with our dolls and teddy bears. At the end of our school years women like to get dressed up, have yummy treats and spend plenty of time talking over tea to celebrate graduation. Plenty of wedding and baby showers are set with a beautiful tea party background to enjoy these exciting milestones with our family and girlfriends. And all of us look forward to tea parties with our daughters, granddaughters and our old friends late into life.

    Friends, fancy, food and fun! Some of girl's favorite things!

  32. Tea parties are a perfect way to remind yourself and your children that being polite and civilized is not only the right thing to do, but it can be fun. Tea parties are a great way to teach and instill manners. In today's world of rude cartoon characters and horrible examples bombarding our children from every angle, it is nice to take refuge in such a wholesome and lovely activity. I can't wait to bring my daughter back for the tea parties this year.

  34. My eldest daughter just turned four years old and she is just beginning to experience the magic of tea parties. She makes it a point to "call the fairies" to invite them to tea and then at the conclusion of the party, she searches the house and yard for her fairy friends. She would be so delighted to see teeny tiny desserts and search for fairies in Georgell Doll Shop!

  35. we love tea parties in our house. my four year old daughter is the middle one between a handicap older brother and a 22 month old sister. with the other two needing so much attention, tea parties are her time to be the center of attention and have it all be about her. I love this time listening to her imagination and her beautiful simple outlook on life. it helps me to see life in a simpler view where it's all about tea cups and cookies! Lindsay Leyba

  36. My 6 year old daughter would love to have a tea party with some of her cousins. Having a tea party is a time for all of the cares in the world to escape and let our imaginations run free. Being able to dress up for tea would be something that she will remember forever.

  38. Before my daughter was born she had a tea set))))). I would want to share my passion with her, because it can teach her appropriate manners and etiquette. Tea party is a great event, we could invite my daughters friends to spend some time together. They will remember it for a long time!!!! Olena Scott

  41. I actually have never been to a tea party - as a child or an adult. I would love to be able to let my daughter experience this and her 8th birthday this year would be a lovely time to do it.

  42. Tea parties are an essential part of growing up as a little girl :) Some of my favorite memories as a kid are having tea parties with my little sister. It is so much fun and important for little girls to pretend and use their imagination. Plus who doesn't love to dress up and have fun! My little girl would love this :)

  44. I have two little girls who would love to be a part of this. They are 4 and 5 years old. They have had to take the backseat for the past 10 months as we have had a baby born with severe medical issues and this momma has struggled trying to take care of baby's needs along with theirs. Tea parties are magical - everything in the world looks brighter with yummies and tea. Girls get to come dressed in their best and get to forget about the struggles of their baby sister and take time to live in the magical world of make believe.

  45. I've never been to a tea party--but I have a friend that has a granddaughter that would LOVE this! I have a 6 year old grandson that might think this would be fun too. Tea parties aren't just for girls--are they?

  52. How can you pick one favorite thing about tea parties?! I love everything from the hats & the dresses & lifting your pinkie finger & the acting proper to the memories! Okay, the memories are my favorite. My grandma passed away 2 months ago, but my favorite memory of her was having tea parties with her. My cousin & I used to do it all of the time with her. She would put milk & sugar in the real tea sets and it made us feel so special!
    I'd be thrilled if I could carry on the tradition with my daughter now!

  53. My 5 year old daughter cannot leave the house until she is dressed to the nines, and every outfit is like she is the host of some fabulous event. We play by having tea parties with her stuffed animals. She is such a little woman and I love her.

  59. The last time I saw my granddaughter we had a tea party at your shop. Abi was six then and moved away. How my heart hurt. Abi would say whenever she got sad she would hug her doll she got from the shop and have sweet memories. Abi is now 15 and has moved closer. She has a sister now, Chloe who will be six tomorrow. And she said Bama can we please take Chloe so she'll have happy memories like I've had all these years?
