RIDGEWAY – It was the fourth annual Children’s Christmas Tea at Laura’s Tea Room in Ridgeway, and Lauren Attaway was eager to mention that she and her mom, Samantha, had attended each of the four.

And no wonder. The room was filled with fun elegance, with little girls and their moms and grandmothers, all in hats, munching on Santa cookies, tiny sandwiches and, of course, sipping tea from cups as exquisite as Hyacinth Bucket’s hand-painted, blue periwinkle Royal Doulton.

Everything was fussy as one might expect a High Tea to be and, whether the experience was new or practiced, it was a delightful event for the little ladies.
