The girls also held live Monarch butterflies and gottemporary tattoos. They also heard a story from the story fairy and a song froma real live princess. Organizers say the tea is an innovative way to get thecommunity out to the garden.
"A lot of people wholove gardens but don't necessarily want to come to the garden to plant, theyjust want to come here and have a nice time so we thought what a wonderful wayto celebrate would be with beautiful little girls in a beautiful garden,"said Cheryl Boyett, Tea Coordinator.
