I Gotta Have It!

"Gotta have.  I really gotta have it.  I really gotta have it for Christmas".... It's a line in a song my children will be singing in a Christmas musical production in a few weeks, and I just know it is exactly how you'll be feeling when you see some of our best items.  And it is for that reason that part of our silent auction will have a "BUY IT NOW" price.  The Buy It Now Price will be at least 10% below retail price.... add that to the savings because you won't be paying any sales tax and it's a deal.

Up Close & Personal

As I have said many times, the Cinderella Tea is so much more than a formal tea party and princess themed ballet.  The Pre-Event Activities more than double the magic, thanks to community members and businesses bringing their talents and expertise to our event, and allowing so many "special touches".

Before we are called to tea by King John, each attendee will be invited to gussie up at the Bibbiddi Bobbiddi Boutique, learn to tippie toe and twirl with Tiny Toes, and once they've got "the look" and "the moves" they will make their own wand, and go to see the Fairy Godmother, who will present them with their very own tiara and proclaim them an official princess of the land... and the new princesses will be invited to meet and in person!  

Magic Event Photography will be on hand to take the perfect photos of these magic "up close and personal" moments.  That's just the perfect souvenir for mom.  Personally, I recommend that you frame the prints and display them in your curio next to the tea cup souvenirs....that's where you'll see mine.

If you haven't bought your tickets, there are still a few available, so go quickly to the web site below and buy your tickets today!

Tip Toe With Tiny Toes

At an event like this, your daughter is guaranteed to want to dance and spin like a real ballerina!  And, lucky for you, before we "sit" for tea, every little girl will be invited to learn a few ballet moves, courtesy of Tiny Toes Ballet.  So, by intermission, when she can no longer resist dancing in the isles, she'll already look like a professional!

We'd like to thank Tiny Toes Ballet, who has been the sponsor of the the most magical moment of all for two years now!

Tiny Toes has ballet studios in South Riding and Leesburg.  So, sign your daughter up for a class today and she'll get to feel like real live princess every day, and be one tippie-tippie-tip-toe from being a real live ballerina herself!

Magic by Missy

One of our favorite contributors at the Cinderella Tea is "Murals by Missy".  She paints murals, but she creates so much more... I say she creates magic!  Her paintings and many other great and creative things make a child's imagination come alive.... and might even make a grown up believe in magic. 

You'll see her expert work in places like Tiny Toes Ballet, and the Rocknoceros' Tshirts, in their book Colonel Purple Turtle's Purple Turtle Journal and many other great and wonderful places.  She has a very special talent of using art to stimulate the mind of a child, in a way very few artists can do.

The pictures in this blog post are the paintings she is contributing to the Cinderella Tea, and with a little luck you just might get to take one (or both) home! You can see more of her work on her blog:; at her web site:; and on her facebook page:

The best part about Missy?  She's fabulous....overall, just fabulous!  We at the Cinderella Tea truly appreciate her generosity with her many contributions.  At the Cinderella Tea you will see some more of her handy work, as she created our hand painted signs and helps with many of the special touches that will transform the National Conference Center in Leesburg into the grandest place you can imagine.

If this is your first time at the Cinderella Tea, you simply must check out where you can find videos and still pictures of previous year's events.  Then rush over to to buy your tickets! 

Stay tuned to this blog to learn about other contributors and sponsors and the types of events you'll get to experience at the Cinderella Tea.
