Mothers, Daughters, Dolls & Delights

Doll tea party 1 Doll tea party 2
Scheduled to coincide with the now-defunct Doll Day weekend, the annual "Dolly & Me for Tea" party was a female-only event sponsored by the Haddonfield Presbyterian Church Preschool. Real-life Raggedy Anns greeted party goers (above, left) who were invited to feast from delicacy-laden tables (above, right). The event used to raise money for a regional children's literacy campaign.

Tea and the etiquette of its preparation and consumption were celebrated by participants who also got to show off their costume finery as well as their favorite dolls (above, left). The crowd included, mothers, daughters, aunts, nieces, grandmothers and granddaughters. Exotic tea pots and accoutrements (above, right) decorated Fellowship Hall in the downstairs of the Presbyterian Church.
