A Little Tea Party Inspiration

The Bering’s Stationery Department was recently enlisted to help with a Girl Scout Tea Party for Duchesne’s Kindergarten Daisy Troop! It was beyond sweet with a southern theme, but even sweeter was that it was held in honor of Girl Scout founder, Juliette Gordon Low!

For the majority of us, a key parenting ingredient to help lay the foundation for our children is manners. The Girl Scout Promise ensures manners are a leading component. It is wonderful knowing these little ladies’ attendance and manners during the event helped them earn a petal (badge)! Daisies must earn their petals to become a Girl Scout and petals can be earned in a number of ways. Petals and/or patches are earned by obtaining educational credits, volunteering and other tasks deemed fitting of the Girl Scout’s Promise of , “Always helping others at all times.”

Girls have to use their manners at a tea party, so troop leader, Mia Bering, was spot on with her troop event! Be prepared for some ooohs and awwws when you scroll down and look at the pictures from the darling tea party!

Now that we’ve reminded you about how wonderful the Girl Scouts are, let’s share in the party pretties prepared by Bering’s Stationer, Elizabeth Miranda! Mia worked closely with Elizabeth to customize some incredible tea party invitations and place cards!

The criterion for earning a daisy petal was satisfied upon the girls’ introduction to table etiquette. The meeting craft was so cute; the girls made thank you cards for one another! The girls wrote something they liked about the person they sat next to and then they gave it to them. A befitting craft given their badge message – I respect myself and others!

While Elizabeth created the beautiful invitations and place cards, the paper plates and napkins are Caspari, at Bering’s. Caspari paper goods are a party must and are sure to add a little extra detail to your next get together or event!

We are also loving the favor bag each daisy received. The blue bags with daisies couldn’t be cuter!

A fun little tidbit from the party is that while the girls had the option of tea or lemonade, tea was selected and enjoyed by all! (Keep in mind that iced tea was not served!) …Manners and etiquette, friendship and exposure to new options add so much depth and impact making the Girl Scouts such an extraordinary organization!

The icing on the cake was so thick that it is hard to decide which party piece we liked the most, but we think that you’ll agree that the vintage framed pictures of each attendee could not be more adorable! While the girls loved the favors, we are guessing their parents were even more excited to have the moment captured so cutely!

If you’d like to host a tea party, be sure to visit us for tea, invitations, paper goods and more! However, we must confess that Bering’s cannot take all of the credit! We are big fans of Estelle Joyner, founder of Sweeter than Sweet Tea. Estelle provided the fine china and linens to add to the overall Southern theme, and is the person to call to help you throw an incredible tea party! Great job, Estelle! Here is her email address: sweeterthansweettea@yahoo.com

And if you haven’t heard of Sugar & Ice’s fabulously tasty cookies then we hope you will try them! …Did you see the cupcakes??! The cupcakes came from Sweet, located in City Centre. A serious double dose of deliciousness!

While a beautiful tea party shared among friends is always a good thing, we would like to take a minute to share some impressive statistics that everyone can appreciate about the Girl Scouts:

  • 2/3 of all business owners were Girl Scouts
  • 80% of female business owners were Girl Scouts
  • 69% of female senators and 67% of House of Representatives were Girl Scouts
  • Every female astronaut who has flown in space was a Girl Scout

STATS FOR POST

Girl Scouts today leaders tomorrow definitely sums up the organization!

We hope you’ll enjoy a sip or two of tea!
