Parks department presents inaugural Pampered Tea for Two

It was a girls’ day out Saturday morning as the Seymour Parks and Recreation Department conducted its inaugural Pampered Tea for Two event at Rails Craft Brew and Eatery in downtown Seymour.

Around 50 young girls and their mothers or grandmothers attended the event, which featured tea from The Healthy Corner, cookies from Laura Jo’s Cookies for Kids, shopping with Lea Boutique and Seedlings and Co., a selfie station from The Tribune, hair styling and makeup from Blush and Brush Beauty Bar and storytime with The Magic of Books Bookstore.

Tonya Disque with Seymour Parks and Recreation was in charge of organizing the event, also sponsored and organized by Seymour Main Street.

Betsy Davidson and her daughter, Amelia, 4, of Seymour both had a wonderful time, Betsy said.

“She was over the moon with all the special things there were to do. Hair, makeup, photo session, she felt like a million bucks,” Davidson said. “Seymour is so lucky to have such an awesome parks department putting these events on.”

Mary Spray said she and her daughter, Caroline, 4, are looking forward to attending more parks and recreation events in the future.

“We enjoyed it so much,” Spray said. “Thank you, Tonya Disque, and others for making this magical morning happen for us.”

It was the perfect opportunity for moms to spend time with their little girls, added Amelia O’Neal, who took her daughter, Madelayne.

“The cookies were awesome, and Madelayne had so much fun getting her hair done and shopping for outfits for herself and her sister,” O’Neal said. “She also loved the selfie station.”

Allison Berry of Vallonia and her daughter, Morgan, 4, also enjoyed the morning.

“We had so much fun,” Berry said. “What a special day for me and my girl.”
