A practically perfect tea party with Mary Poppins

Last year’s tea party may have been Pinkalicious, but this one was practically perfect in every way.

To celebrate the 50th anniversary of Mary Poppins, Mentor Public Library hosted a special tea party Saturday at its main branch. Children made chalk drawings, haberdashed their own Mary Poppins hats, danced to “Step in Time,” ate crumpets and drank raspberry lemonade with the moms and grandmas.

The only way it could have been more fun is if we held it on the ceiling.

We dangled umbrellas and kites from the ceiling.

To everyone who was there, we hope you had as much fun as we did.
