The Magic is in the Details
Tea parties are one of the most timeless and beloved traditions for women and girls. We all treasure sweet memories of “having tea” with our own grandmothers, mothers, sisters, and daughters. Frisco Women’s League celebrates this tradition, bringing generations of women together for a memorable afternoon of glamour and fun!
If you haven’t attended the Tea before, you’re in for a treat. Each year, Frisco Women’s League goes all out to create a fun, magical experience. The Hilton ballroom will be transformed into an enchanted seascape that would impress even Ariel herself.
Summer Simmons, Vice President of Special Events, says, “I love seeing everyone get so excited when the doors open and they get their first look inside.” While “Under the Sea”, guests will enjoy a wonderful luncheon, complete with a signature cocktail for adults and a special drink for children. Fun, themed activities and live entertainment will add to the festive atmosphere.
This year, guests can look forward to photo booths, a candy bar, kid’s crafts, and even a special mermaid hair braiding station! And no tea party would be complete without fancy hats!
FWL Vice President of Communications Gje Greene-Wallace says, “It is a lot of fun to see all the amazing hats our guests create!”
The hat contest is just one of the many fun-filled traditions that make the Mother Daughter Tea an event you will want to attend year after year.

Big Hats, Big Hearts
Since 2006, the annual Mother Daughter Tea has raised an incredible $300,000 for Frisco area non-profits. All proceeds from the event go to the FWL Charitable Giving Fund, a dedicated fund that distributes grants to many local beneficiaries. Frisco Fastpacs, Clothe A Child, Heritage Association of Frisco, Hope Park Frisco, Best Buddies, and the Frisco Education Foundation are just a few of the local organizations supported through the Mother Daughter Tea.
Summer Simmons notes, “It’s very special that our event is able to raise money to help so many organizations in our community.” Beneath all the fancy hats and fantastical fun, the Tea is a serious contributor to our local community and an event you can be proud to attend.
The remarkable ladies of Frisco Women’s League certainly know how to throw a party – and make a difference. Amy Rudy, the organizations 2018-2019 President says,
The FWL Mother Daughter Tea has been a family tradition for years. I attend with my three daughters and my mom, who travels from Oklahoma just for the Tea. It’s such a thrill to walk in and see how the volunteers have transformed the ballroom into whatever the theme happens to be that year. We’ve seen everything from butterflies to candy to Hollywood and the Emerald City. It’s a fun-filled afternoon and we’re so honored to have played a small part over the years helping FWL raise funds for charitable organizations in our community.
Tickets are available now. Get yours today and we’ll see you “Under the Sea”.
