Mother Daughter Tea Party at Sulfur Creek
by Susana Nuñez
Although Father's Day has come to take a bit of mom's glory away, mothers are invited to make a comeback with a lovely tea party where frilly dresses are encouraged. With a three-course meal of bite-size treats and tea and juice for all, mothers and daughters can spend the afternoon under the oak trees at the Sulfur Creek Nature Center in Hayward.
Dedicated Nature Center staff members Rose Britton and Gracie Stafford are heading the second Mother-Daughter Tea Party. The two decided on an egg-related theme for this year's party and decor will illustrate the types of animals that lay eggs. To further express the theme, the duo will provide a storyteller that will be sharing tales about eggs. The storyteller, Joellen Rice, is a volunteer at the Nature Center, and the library system as well. Craft booths will also be set up during the party. Dainty finger sandwiches and kid-friendly items will be served.
The tea party will be held on Saturday, June 25 at the center. All mothers and daughters (ages 4 and up) are welcome to attend. Registering early is encouraged since spaces fill up quickly and only 22 people may participate per group. The first tea party will begin at 11 a.m. and the second will begin at 1 p.m. The cost is $15 per person plus a $6 supply fee.
