Tea with Mrs. B – Etiquette Class (3 & 4 Y/Os)

  • Date: November 20
  • Time: 9:00 am to 10:00 am
  • Price: $40
  • Location: Gorton Community Center
    400 E. Illinois Road, Lake Forest, IL 60045

Your child will join Mrs. B (Sarah Berto with Confidence with Etiquette) and spend an hour of fun preparing a plate of eats, setting a tea table, and then dressing up in hats/ties/bows and other accessories. This sets the atmosphere for learning how to sit, behave, serve and talk politely at the table. At the end of each tea party students learn how to clear the table, wash up the china crockery, leaving the place in the same condition as we found it.

The children learn:

– How to take care of fragile things by setting the table for tea using porcelain teapots, plates, demi-tass cups and saucers etc. They become invested in what they will be learning by putting the finishing touches to something home-made,

– How to take care of themselves, by dressing up in hats, boas and bow ties, and learn how to sit around a tea table.

– How to care for others at the table through 12 different social and table etiquette skills (like please and thank you, passing food, not stretching, chewing properly etc.
