Royal Tea Family Fun Night Was a Hit!
Suffield families had a royal time at our Royal Tea Family Fun Night on Friday, June 2. Families came to the Suffield Senior Center on Friday, June 2 to enjoy a night of fancy tea partying. Children and families dressed up in their elegant clothing to enjoy tea, juice, pizza, scones, cookies and lots of other taste treats! Children and adults enjoyed creating golden crowns and other tea party crafts. Once craft and eating time concluded, all participants joined in tea party bingo. We had many winners receive fun toys, crafts and gift cards as prizes! The night ended with a reading from the book Tea Party Rules. Overall, it was an extraordinary time dressing up and enjoying the Royal Par-tea!
