Smarty Party Idea: Alice's Place

Guest Blogger, Karen Petty

This past Christmas, my daughter came to me with the most wonderful idea; she wanted to have a tea party with her little girlfriends. After much thought (and some Googling!) we found out about Miss Alice, the Tea Party Lady.

All it took was one phone call and I was hooked. Alice Cunningham is the most delightful woman with a great passion for teaching and instilling into our daughters the notion that good manners are timeless. She does so by transforming her home into a wonderland for little girls.

Upon arriving to her home the day of the party, the girls were treated to a fantastical land of dress up, complete with feather boas, fancy hats, high heels and everything pink and sparkle you could imagine! Miss Alice then begins her manners lesson: teaching the girls how to sit properly, speak politely, and respect others. From there, the girls have their nails painted and then find themselves seated and ready for the most wonderful "tea!"

Miss Alice uses only fine china (which she reassures us moms have never once been broken by a young child!), and serves the girls lemonade, finger sandwiches and cake. Throughout the tea party, Miss Alice gently reminds us all that good manners are timeless and will never, in her words, go out of style.

We so loved our experience with Miss Alice that we have already booked another tea party for this spring. My daughter and her friends have positively raved about their fun time at Miss Alice's and have been asking to go back since the moment the first party was over! And I have to agree, Miss Alice's place is positively delightful and I too, am ready to return!

We are thrilled to have Alice's Place as a sponsor on our Smarty Birthday Party Directory. Alice's Place is available for birthday parties or tea parties for any occasion. Miss Alice has been known throughout the Triad for providing truly fun and memorable parties for 14 years. She is located at 3120 Robinhood Road, Winston Salem, NC. You can read more about Alice's Place on her blog here. Her blog also includes pricing, menus, as well as gorgeous photos! Please call Alice at 724-9667 for more information. Visit by appointment only, please.
