Little Lady Tea at McComb Library

17 Nov 2014 8:24 AM | Tina Harry (Administrator)

Pike-Amite-Walthall children’s librarian Mattie Rials, affectionately known as Miss Mattie, hosted a “Little Lady” tea October 12, 2014, at the McComb Library.  Little girls came to the party, dressed up in their mothers’ clothes with long beads, brimmed hats, and high heels.  As the little girls modeled their outfits, Nancy Jackson played “A Pretty Girl Is like a Melody” on her electronic organ.  Following the fashion parade, Alice Rhea Mitchell read her children’s book entitled My Mama’s Closet.  Then the little girls enjoyed refreshments of finger foods on pink party plates with fruit juice served in stemmed plastic cups.  The little girls took home gift bags filled with paper dolls, a feathered fan, and a bookmark.
