Westwood Recreation's annual Tea Party for Princesses & Knights will teache simple manners and fulfill a dream for aspiring princesses and knights ages 4-8.
The Tea Party will revolve around the red-carpet coronation of the Princesses and Knights of Westwood Castle. To prepare, the children will decorate scepters and practice curtsies/bows. They will also review polite-guest behaviors and basic introduction skills, including the handshake. On a queue from Lady J’s magic wand “Wanda” the children will then follow Lady J to the “Court” and each walk down the red carpet to be crowned a princess or knight. Afterwards, bedecked with tiaras/crowns and pink-satin or black/silver capes, the princesses and knights will proceed to a tea table that will be dressed with pink lace and china. Following a review of basic table manners, the troupe will enjoy “royal tea” (pink lemonade) and treats, an original tea-party tale, and conversation.
The party will end with The Polka-Dot Princess, an original story/game.
Parents can enroll their children online a by visiting the Recreation Department’s registration page at http://www.activityreg.com/clientpage.wcs; (the Tea Party is listed under “February Vacation FY13”) or in person at the Recreation Department’s office at 240 Nahatan St.
Janet Parnes, an etiquette consultant and owner of Royal Tea Parties by Lady J will officiate.
