Miss Manners


On Charlotte's 6th birthday a very special guest visited her classroom of 18 kindergartners...Her Auntie Joanne (owner of "Charlotte's Tearoom) aka Miss Manners, brought tea and sweets to share with her classmates.

Eighteen little ones sat politely and drank tea from "real" cups on "real" tablecloths...they said, "pleases" and "thank yous" and and used their napkins. One even proposed a toast to Charlotte with a cup raised in good cheer.



Miss Manners regularly hosts "mind your manners" teas and birthday parties for youngsters at her tea room...how lucky we were to have her make a cameo guest appearance at Park Avenue School.

Thanks to Ms. Berghan for a birthday Charlotte will never forget and thanks to Jo for making Charlotte feel so very special...as if it weren't enough to have a tea room named for her (ok, so maybe she shares the moniker with a spider of some literary fame...)

I love to reading about your kids. You are such a cool mom. They have beautiful fun-filled rooms. They have wonderful opportunities to meet all your talented friends and visit their studios, etc. Your Charlotte, looks so grown up. The children look so well behaved at the table and seem to be enjoying the special occasion.
Thanks so much for sharing.
Happy Holidays to you and your family.
Hugs,
Karen
