GIVEAWAY: Tea with Mrs. B Family Holiday Etiquette Party November 11!

We DC-area families have the unique and awesome opportunity to bring our children to a gorgeous party to kick-off the holidays AND give our kids important etiquette training for the rest of the season.

Tea with Mrs. B Holiday Etiquette and Tea Party for the Entire Family

Sunday, Nov. 11 1 – 3 p.m.

In the iconic ballroom of The Fairfax at Embassy Row Hotel at the intersection of beautiful Dupont Circle and Georgetown in NW DC 

At the event you and your children will be both treated and taught. There will be

  • Kid-friendly discussions of the importance of holiday gatherings and appropriate behavior.
  • White glove and silver butler service of finger sandwiches, delectable desserts, cupcakes, tarts and fruit kabobs served on silver trays alongside an array of green, black and white herbal tea choices.
  • Cooking demonstrations by the hotel’s executive chef, Chris Ferrier. Ferrier will focus on healthy eating options for holiday meals and treats.
  • Your family holiday photo provided by Beth Blinstrub Photography(This is worth the price of admission alone!!)
  • Gift bag of goodies.

Groups are welcome at Sunday’s event  — it is a great outing for your mother’s group, Scout troop, a birthday party, or “date” to connect with family and friends. Group tickets are available for parties of 10 or more.

If you would like to make it a special parent and child getaway, you can also stay overnight at The Fairfax at Embassy Row hotel. I used to live one block away from this exquisite hotel and I still love taking my children to this area of the city. We visit the The Phillips Collection and National Geographic museum, have lunch at the original Pizza Paradiso on P Street, explore the beautiful Georgetown parks and more.

“Mrs. B [is] so comfortable with children. She inspires lifelong lessons in etiquette, poise and good manners, intermingling traditional with modern trends in a most entertaining fashion. We will integrate family fun into our Washington, DC hotel with culinary treats, holiday décor and plain old fun.” — Stephen Johnston, General Manager of The Fairfax.

Tickets:  $49/adult; $29/child. Group rate for parties of 10 or more. Purchase tickets online or by calling 202 736-1459.

  3. Either of my daughters (or son) and I would love to have Tea with Ms B.. always great to learn how to behave at “fancy parties”. I bet they will argue over who gets to go!!! Thanks for the opportunity.

  4. Diane Devendorf says

    My daughters really need this!

  5. Diane Devendorf says

    I liked all on Facebook. Would twitter but can’t remember my password.

  6. My daughter would really enjoy this! Thanks.

  7. My daughter Clare and I could use some mother daughter 1:1 time and for her to here some of the etiquette lessons, from someone besides me. I have done all the Facebook and Twitter following.

  8. I liked the hotel and Mrs. B on Facebook.

  9. I liked the hotel and Mrs. B on Facebook. I am now following them on Twitter.

  10. I would love to take one of my son’s to the Tea with Mrs. B as they can both benefit from learning some dining etiquette! I liked all the Facebook pages and followed all the Twitter pages. Thank you for the chance to win!

  11. alison jovanovic says

    My daughter and I would both benefit from polishing up on our etiquette. 🙂

    I “liked” Mrs. B and The Fairfax on Facebook.

  12. Kathleen is a 3 year old who thinks she is 6 and serves tea and tea plates of anything and everything to her daddy. What a treat this opportunity would be!

  13. I would love to bring my six year daughter to your tea! It sounds like a wonderful day of both mother/daughter bondIng as well as important life lessons! Wonderful

  14. I am so excited for you all to join us! It will be a delightful afternoon filled with fun and fancy manners for boys and girls of all ages.

    But if you cannot join us, try hosting your own fancy tea at home (don’t forget pretty sweets, flowers and a nice table setting). Surprise your child after school or for a breakfast with a fancy invitation. Maybe you want to include a manners treasure hunt that lead them to a beautiful new holiday dress or suit to wear. Good manners can be fun and create positive memories!

  15. Sonia Mena says

    It would be a wonderful opportunity for a mother-daughter outing as well as experiencing something new.

  16. I think having Tea with Mrs. B would be a great opportunity for me and my 6 year old daughter. We have never had the chance to experience something like this and I really wanted to do a Tea for my birthday next week! I have liked on Facebook and am following Tea with Mrs. B and Fairfax Embassy Row on Twitter. Thanks so much for this chance!

  17. My 4 year old daughter would love this!! She is always asking to go to a real tea party!

  18. We have a tiny tea shop in our town, and I can only imagine how thrilled my daughers would be to go big-time with Mrs. B. Plus, any reason for them to dress up in their finest is reason enough!

  19. And I just liked The Fairfax Embassy Row on FB

  20. And I liked Tea with Mrs. B

  21. Hi, this sounds like such a lot of fun to do with a wee one. Wish we could take part but live too far away.
