About 60 moms and their daughters dressed up for the Mommy and Me Tea Saturday at the Rob Roy Golf Course Clubhouse in Prospect Heights.

The attendees were served finger sandwiches and desserts along with their choice of tea.

 

The event has been offered by the River Trails Park District for the past few years the week before Valentine's Day.

"I have a baby at home, so I don't get enough time with my daughter Calista anymore, so this is a nice event -- just me and her," said Amanda Akamphuber of Mount Prospect.

"The girls like to get dressed up and play tea party at home, so I thought a real-life tea party would be right up their alley," said Rebecca Powrozek of Mount Prospect.

Five-year-old Samantha Powrozek said, "The best part of the tea party is being with mom."

Traditionally, afternoon tea was a favorite pastime for ladies of leisure in the United Kingdom.
