I took a friend and her two and a half year-old son to the Teddy Bear Tea this morning. It was so beautiful, and fun, and laid back. The staff were so patient and charming given that there were oodles of small children under foot. The characters were great fun and managed to keep a toddler entertained for almost two hours. Santa had a real beard, looked every bit the part, and was great with kids. The tea sandwiches were yummy as were the sweets which they box up for you at the end. As the irresponsible "Aunt", I also enjoyed the bottomless sparkling wine, and the commemorative champagne glass. Getting a teddy bear on the way out was just icing on little Ethan's cake. I plan on making this a tradition.
