Sixty little ladies and their mothers, grandmothers, and aunts, dressed up in spring florals and straw hats, enjoyed a spot o' tea and sweets at the 10th annual Des Plaines Park District Mother Daughter Tea on April 12, 2014, at Prairie Lakes Community Center. The guests dined on an assortment of finger sandwiches, fresh fruits and vegetables, cheeses, and cookies, while sipping tea and lemonade from china cups. Over two dozen varieties of black, herbal, and green tea were served this year, including Cozy Chamomile, Orange Spice, Earl Grey, and a Royal Blend of Indian and Ceylon Tea imported from London.
After lunch, the girls were treated to a preview of the 2014 Artistry in Motion Spring Showcase Dance Concert. Dancers performed six award winning numbers from their competition season. Guests also played spring bingo, tried their hand at Tea Trivia, and made guesses about how many sugar cubes were in a jar. Then girls decorated wooden birdhouses with paint, markers, and stickers, and had their pictures taken courtesy of the Des Plaines Camera Club.
