LDWC Hold Special Tea Party

Mad Hatters tea partySHERBROOKE: The Lennoxville and District Women’s Center celebrated International Women’s Day, on March 7, by holding a large scale Tea Party the likes of which you’ve never seen! The event was open to both LDWC members and non-members. International Women’s Day is traditionally a day of celebration for the LDWC, its members and supporters. Each year, the Center organizes a banquet, an evening of music with Carole Vincelette, good food, fun and camaraderie. This year, Nathalie Labrecque, owner of Boutique Nostalgia, was recruited to create the décor and the atmosphere at the event. It was thanks to Labrecque that the theme of ‘Women at Famous Tea Parties’ was chosen.

Each Table represented its very own piece of art or media respecting this theme. Guests were given the opportunity to choose the table they wanted to be seated at; come as they are, wearing a special something (hat; gloves etc.) or coming as a favourite character from the Tea Party of your choice.

Table themes included FILMS: Tea with Mussolini; Breakfast at Tiffany’s; The Bitter Tea of General Yen; Mary Poppins and Marie Antoinette; BOOKS: Alice In Wonderland; Sense and Sensibility; ART: Five O’Clock Tea - by Mary Cassatt; High Tea - by Abbott Fuller Graves; Tea in the Garden - by Henri Matisse; Japanese Tea Ceremony - by Yu Xuanji; The Famous Five - by Barbara Paterson; HISTORY: The Royal Family Tea Party.

Auction items included baked goods; knick knacks; crafts etc. A new addition, this year, was a table of “celebrity auction” prizes which included gifts that had been offered by various businesses in the community, such as a $100 gift certificate for Boutique Nostalgia, a gift certificate from Studio Unik for a cut-and-style, and more! Boutique Encore had graciously offered to sponsor 5 guests.
