NMHS Annual Children’s Tea Party...
This is an old event, from 2013
The New Milford Historical Society and Museum’s Annual Children’s Tea Party has been scheduled for Sunday, April 7, at 1:00 PM in the Museum Gallery. This year’s theme will be “Madeline and the Bad Hat.” The tea party is geared for children ages 3-10 and is not deemed suitable for those younger than 3 to attend. All decorations and activities this year will have a “French accent.” The children and their parents attending will be asked to dress in their best “Paris” fashions, as an old-fashioned French school girl or school boy, or wear a “Bad” hat like Pepito. The servers will wear French Berets and Scarves as they serve “Petit Fours” and other French pastries. The children will listen to readings from the “Madeline” books by Ludwig Bemelmans. In addition, they will learn and sing some French songs and learn a French country dance. There will be door prizes awarded as well as awards for the most fashionable girl, best-dressed boy, the girl who looks most like Madeline, the boy who looks most like Pepito, the parent who most resembles Ms. Clavel and the “Baddest” Hat. The cost for a parent and one child will be $25 and each additional child will be a further $10. Please call the New Milford Historical Society and Museum at (860) 354-3069 for Reservations.
