Ah, Monday.  It’s hard to wind up a weekend.  Do we need to tell you why we don’t like manic Mondays?    Immortalized in song and lamented by parents worldwide, the beginning of the week is often accompanied by a long to-do list and a big question mark where your imaginative ideas should be.  We’ve got a few to get the wheels turning again and the week off to a smooth start.  So check out some fun things you can only do on a Monday and make Monday morning all you hope it can be (thanks Mamas and Papas!).

Lollipop Dream Tea Party

Fancy dress and a spot of tea at precisely 4:30 pm is a perfect treat for little ones who love being fancy. The popular Valley boutique and party venue hosts a weekly walk-in tea party, opening its dress-up closet to guests while their party hostess offers etiquette tips, fun facts about tea and even face painting! A mere $10 will grant your admission and no reservation is necessary.
