An American Girl Doll Tea!

The Docents to Hearthside awaits their guest to arrive.  Coming up the walkway to the mansion was many young girls and their American Girl Dolls. It was a sight to behold.

Before entering the building, all the girls got to posse while sitting in an old 1800's buggie.
Now on to Tea!
We must all remember our Tea Etiquette that was taught by Lady Estelle.
At the end of the event, even Lady Estelle had to go for a buggie ride.

See you all next year!


  1. This is so fantastic, and looks like so much fun! I would love to come to Providence, to one of 'Lady Estelle's' Teas sometime!
    My husband and I were married in an authentic 18thc. wedding and each spring we have an outdoor 'English Tea' picnic somewhere historic and nice. We just celebrated our 4th anniversary last Sat. in York Maine, in full 18thc. attire, having a 'formal' tea luncheon by the stone walls of the old cemetary! I made all manner of 'tea' treats. I have an gallery of photos now up, and many teatime recipes on my blog, with more to come!

    Thanks for a great blog and a grand post!

  2. This looks so fantastic - I love the sweet little girls and you must have done a wonderful job to attract such a crowd!

  3. Oh how fun! You look great and what a darling way to introduce these young ladies to tea! Tea and favorite things!
    Lady Linda

  4. It looks like a wonderful time was had by all. Wish I was there. Blessings, Martha
