Mother-Daughter Tea Party @ Dan'l Webster Inn
When: Sat Mar 16th
1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Where: Dan'l Webster Inn | 149 Main Street | Sandwich
Titcomb’s Bookshop and Dan’l Webster Inn will host an American Girl themed mother-daughter tea party on Saturday, March 16th at 1:00 p.m. at the historic Dan’l Webster Inn. Mothers, daughters, grandmothers, aunts and others are invited to join us for this very special event.
The tea will celebrate American Girl’s newest historical doll, Caroline. Caroline is based on a girl who lives in upstate New York as the war of 1812 begins. She loves sailing with her father, but when he's captured by the British, Caroline must help keep the family's shipyard running. When she sees a chance to rescue her father, Caroline discovers that she must use her mind and heart to guide her decisions.
The tea party will include a craft, dancing, music, as well as delicious refreshments typical of Caroline's days.
Marcie Van Cleave, executive director of the Folk Arts Center of New England, will join us to teach everyone traditional folk dancing from the early 1800s. Marcie has led international folk dance sessions at the New England Folk Festival and has organized the Boston Harbor Scottish Fiddle School. She has been the Executive Director of the Folk Arts Center of New England since 1988.
Girls may bring a doll to the event, if they wish.
"It's been many years since we worked with the Dan'l Webster on an American Girl-themed party and we are delighted to be offering this again. The Caroline books are perfect for Cape Cod, since they are about a girl who loves sailing," stated Vicky Titcomb from Titcomb's Bookshop. "We're thrilled to welcome back Marcie Van Cleve to lead the dancing. She has a wealth of experience - and she's so much fun!"
Reservations are required and may be made at Titcomb’s Bookshop. $25.00 per person. Ages 3 and up.
