The most enchanting event you’ll ever want to experience is the Wilmington Children’s Azalea Tea Party hosted by Cape Fear Volunteer Center at the beautiful Cape fear Country Club.
Hey Yall – its Fancy Nancy!
Fancy Nancy the storybook character
Fancy Nancy was present with all her glitter and dazzle presence. She is quite the celebrity, with a book written about her and everything.. I had the opportunity to catch her away from her avid fans to quiz her about her lavish vocabulary. Needless to say, she is quite impressive and delightfully tickled my ears with stories and adventures. I will look forward to seeing Fancy Nancy again in the future.
As you might expect, the Tea Party was quite the “proper affair”, complete with a fairy tale theme and fancy hot pink swag bags adorned with little treasures for the princesses.
In attendance at this posh Tea Party were Azalea Belles, Princesses and Queens from the Cape Fear Garden Club. The Azalea Princess and her court also attended the Children’s Tea Party to complete the majestic tone of the party.
And the Azalea Belles would make Scarlett O’Hara envious…
Oh, and here is Annie Anthony, Director of Cafe Fear Volunteer Center working tirelessly to meet everyone’s expectation for this event. And she did. This event is a favorite and usually sells out weeks in advance prior to the party. The Children’s Tea Party is the first event of the Azalea Festivities, kicking off the city’s most popular event.
Here are some of the fashionable guests and lovely children who attended the Children’s Tea Party:
Ashley Kosikowski, WECT TV anchor, did a great job and kept the momentum moving as emcee. Occasionally getting a little help from “Fancy Nancy”.
The cameras were rolling and flashing all over the country club...WWAY was there on the scene.
Among the camera flashes, some great local photographers were capturing plenty of smiles, glitter and glam. I had the opportunity to view www.marksteelmanphot.com, photographer Mark Steelman’s and they captured the heart of the event. Portraits were taken by Kenny Barnes, Children’s Photographer www.kennybarnes.com.
The children enjoyed the jewelry crafting. They worked intensely on their bracelets.
The make-up was from none other than Chanel, a sponsor. What a treat for any girl, x0x0.
And we can’t forget all the finger nail painting.
Beautiful white tents were set up on the grounds for make-up stations, face painting, nail painting, candy options and much more. It was a girly girl day of pampering and entertainment.
The flowers were exquisite and plentiful against a backdrop of chandeliers and elegant country squire rooms. Every table decorated to perfection. I have never seen as many beautiful hydrangeas, cheery tabletop floral arrangements and pink balloons in one place. The gorgeous flowers donated by Sweet Nectar Florist. And the lunch – was not to disappoint any taste palette and was equally matched in presentation. The deserts were the color of soft pastels of soft pink, mint, yellow and white.
What’s not to love about this Azalea Children’s Tea Party? I had a great time seeing the children dressed up in their beautiful dresses with proud Mothers at their side, and some Dads too. The event seemed magical and the whole day was flawless and pink loads of fun.
Very truly yours,
