From time to time, as a shop owner, we are approached about making a donation or assembling a gift basket to be auctioned off at charitable and fundraising events. And in the past, we’ve enjoyed coming up with different items, but recently, Jackie and Cindy devised a brilliant idea, inspired by their mutual love of tea parties and baked goods, for these scenarios. When confronted with the opportunity to donate something special to Lindsay Holy Family for their Fun Night earlier this year, Jackie and Cindy decided to donate a Timeless-hosted tea party to be auctioned off at the event!
What we loved most about the idea (well, who doesn’t love a tea party?) was that it was a fresh and unique idea that would offer the winner more than just a possession; it would give them a one-of-a-kind, memorable, lovely experience they could share with some of their cherished friends. A couple of weeks ago, the day finally came for the winner of the prize to redeem her award, and Timeless hosted our very first inaugural tea party!
Of course, in true tea party fashion, we used antique china, silverware, glasses, platters, and vases.
We had eight fabulous ladies come in, dressed to the nines, for a sweet, entertaining, and lighthearted afternoon full of laughter, flowers, and festive activities. We served tea sandwiches, desserts, and salads (all courtesy of Cindy) as well as different hot and cold teas (of course!) and some festive infused bubbly!
THE TEA PARTY LADIES
spent the afternoon creating their own beautiful bouquets to take home, enjoying hand massages, playing tea party trivia, and just enjoying time with one another while records played in the background.
Suffice to say, the party was absolutely perfect (and so much fun!)—we already can’t wait for the ones to come! In fact, we donated another tea party to St. Michael’s Church, which was auctioned off at last month’s St. Patrick’s Carnival, so we are eagerly anticipating all the sweetness and fun that will accompany that one.
If you can’t already tell, we’re so excited to introduce this new idea and to continue hosting tea parties here at Timeless. So if you’re interested in having a magically divine private tea party with some of your favorite ladies—whether for a birthday, shower, special occasion, or just a girls day out—just ask us about it at (402) 395-2430 or stop by the shop!
