This month Chicktime SA Central had its very first tea party with the girls of St. PJ’s. Our tea party was led by Chef Krista of Krista’s Culinary Creations. As the girls arrived, they were escorted to the first station where they designed their aprons for the cupcake station. Many of the girls asked the volunteers to sign their aprons to remember the time with us, which was so meaningful! Next, the girls moved to the second station and decorated a cupcake with an assortment of toppings. The girls were then escorted to 3 tables full of dresses and hats. They were able to choose any dress and/or hat to wear for the tea party. Some of the volunteers even joined in the fun and wore dresses and hats too! The girls had so much fun choosing their dress and a dress for the volunteers.
Finally, it was time for the tea party! Chef Krista wanted the girls to feel special and feel like they were at an actual tea party, so the volunteers served each girl a choice of a Georgia peach tea or a mint tea and tea sandwiches. One of our volunteers was also kind enough to bring doughnut holes for the girls and volunteers to snack on while they mingled at the party. It truly was a wonderful morning and so nice to relax and really interact with the girls. The girls were so thankful and expressed how much fun they were having; there were even a few “I love Chicktime!” (This made our hearts swoon!)
Chef Krista could not not have done a better job setting the standard for a proper tea party! We are so thankful for Krista hosting this month’s activity and all our volunteers, including Kappa Delta Chi Sorority that came out and spent their morning with the girls. We truly cannot do this without you and hope you realize the great impact that we as a group are making with the girls of St. PJ’s (#StrongerTogether)!! We hope to see you at next month’s event hosted by Kathy!
