Kids love tea! Perhaps you have your own memories of playing tea party as a child, or having tea with your parents or grandparents.

You can host your own Teddy Bear Tea Party with our Children’s High Tea To Go (teaware rented separately). Or bring your little ones in enjoy our  Children’s High Tea here at the Garden!

Teatime is a great way to create treasured memories with your kids. Here are a few photos from the Teddy Bear picnic:
