Tea For Toys

Last week I had the pleasure of attending the Newnan-Coweta Magazine “Tea For Toys” event.  It was held at the Holly Cottage Tearoom in Newnan, GA.  Each guest purchased an advance ticket and also donated a new toy to the Coweta County Foster Parent Association.


This English style tearoom has the perfect mix of traditional decor, delicious food, and friendly servers.

There was quite a festive atmosphere at this Christmas tea.  Lovely favors and goody bags were provided for each guest, including a gorgeous paper arts shoe at each place setting.  Each shoe was unique in color and pattern and contained a teabag tied with a pretty bow tucked inside.

PC022255Lots of wonderful door prizes were given and a great little booklet to take away filled with recipes and craft ideas.


Of course, the food was delectable.  It included Yorkshire loaf, sandwiches, scone, truffle and fruit, plus a yummy English Sherry Trifle.


I’ve already asked Angela (on the left) from Tea With Friends to include me on next years guest list.  I’m really hoping that this will become an annual event.

I did read Angela's review. It is fun to see that little shoe more closely. What a nice little gift.

Thanks for the kind comments, Maureen! Your presence (and moral support) was certainly a *gift* to me!
