|The local homecoming queens holding court for the fundraiser|
Sometimes we need ideas about how to treat our little princesses right. It's difficult to remember sometimes how important it is for little girls to have real role models and get out and enjoy themselves with other princesses.
Just as an example, in a town in Michigan they are having a "Princess Tea" that will serve as a fundraiser for a local youth center. Rather than have the young ladies holding the fundraiser dress up as Disney princesses, instead they are donning their very real princess regalia - as homecoming princesses - to meet and great aspiring little princesses.
“So far we’ve gotten quite a bit of interest,” Nancy Knick of the youth center said. “We even have some dads bringing their daughters, which is very cool.”
For a fee that is the same price as a ticket to see "Frozen," the girls get to chat with the homecoming queens, make crafts, take photos, play games and dine on finger sandwiches, tea and cookies. As a permanent memento, each little princess gets to take home a vintage tea cup and matching saucer of her own.
It is the kind of an event that many participants will remember forever. Don't you remember fondly events like that from your childhood? I do.
This is a terrific, original idea and it may just be something that others might find interesting to arrange in their own towns as well.
This particular affair (just as an example, obviously people far and wide and long after this has passed will see this and aren't going to attend a local event):
Tickets are $10 and seating is limited. Tickets can be purchased from 8:30 a.m. through 4:30 p.m. at the Allen Park Community Center, 15800 White Avenue, Allen Park, MI 48101, event to be held there Sunday, March 16 2014. For reference, this is just down the road from Dearborn and the Henry Ford Museum.
