tea time with babar at hotel plaza athenee

We had quite the lovely afternoon yesterday at Hotel Plaza Athenee for a special tea time with the King of the Elephants, Babar. I loved, loved, loved Babar when I was little, and we've only recently introduced the series to Millie, so the timing couldn't have been more perfect. I am so happy that this classic character from children's literature is alive and well and being celebrated in such an elegant yet kid-friendly way.

I have to say the girls mastered the fine art of holding their tea cups pretty well (felt sure there would be a spill...) and the menu is filled with tasty treats all kids will enjoy. While Vivian clammed up when Babar himself arrived, she did love the plush-non-moving version we met. Millie loved drawing his crown and the Babar-themed Christmas tree. And Mommy? She really enjoyed her flute of Prosecco.

Tea with Babar officially begins this Saturday, November 30th and will take place every Saturday through December 28th (from 3-5pm). Along with yummy tea sandwiches, scones and cookies, not to mention a meet-and-greet with Babar, your child will go home with a fun goody bag.

Price: $39/child; $45/adult
Reservations are recommended: 212.606.4647

Goody bag contents
