Beyond the streets of New York City and the famed Eloise Tea at the Plaza hotel the American Girl Cafe on Fifth Avenue, I’ve rounded up the 4 Best Tea Parties for Little Girls that will blow your Little Princess away!
Tea and Tiaras, Mission Inn Hotel and Spa
Aspiring princesses ages 3-12 will feel like royalty at this party. Regal offerings start with sparkling apple cider on the patio of the Spanish patio which truly makes one feel as if they’ve been transported to Europe. Tasty treats include freshly baked scones with jam, hot cocoa, orange floats, and a range of princess friendly delicate pastries and confections from Casey’s Cupcakes. Tiara included!
Spa Princess Treatment, Beverly Wilshire
Beverly Hills, CA
It seems fairly tales do come true. In this exclusive pint sized pampering package, princesses get a glowing facial which includes a facial cleanse and massage. Then there’s a dusting of glistening powder followed by a shimmer of candy flavored lip gloss. And of course, to complete your magical look, a princess tiara is presented at the end of your treatment.
Princess For A Day, The Peninsula
The royal Princess for a Day experience technically lasts just 24 hours, but having people curtsy for you might have long-lasting effects. The “staff of attendants” will princess-ize your mini monarch with hair, makeup and nail services followed by a royal fitting of a gown and tiara before heading downstairs for an Afternoon Tea. There’s even a horse-drawn, pumpkin-shaped carriage and a glass-slipper-fitting with a prince.
Peter Rabbit Tea, The Ritz Carlton
This finger licking experience offered Thursday – Sunday will have your kids grinning from ear to ear. Mouth-watering treats (with a Peter Rabbit theme) include gingerbread teddy bears, milk chocolate shortbread, Hershey’s hot chocolate and chocolate dipped strawberries.
