Teddy Bear Tea at the Ritz-Carlton

If you happen to be vacationing in or near a city that has a Ritz-Carlton hotel, an all-time favorite with the kids during the holidays is the Teddy Bear Tea. A great Mommy-and-Me event, girls and moms will love getting dolled up in their best dresses for this fancy, yet funny tea.

Holiday Entertainment at the Teddy Bear Tea

At the Ritz-Carlton San Francisco, Binky the Elf will delight the kids with holiday storytelling and a karaoke-style sing-along that includes Christmas classics. The moms will get a kick out of Binky’s hilarious impersonations of Sonny and Cher, Carly Simon and Justin Bieber. Another hit with the kids is a real-life Teddy Bear that greets the children at their tables. Kids can get a photo with the bear in front of the Christmas tree for a holiday keepsake. For those who forgot to bring their favorite stuffed animal to have tea with, don’t fret. The Teddy Bear Tea includes a soft, brown teddy bear for the kids to take with them.

Teddy Bear Tea Menu at the Ritz-Carlton

The celebration begins with children being served a cup of cocoa with optional marshmallows, and the moms being offered a choice of three varieties of tea served in elegant teacups. For an additional fee, there is an open bar for the adults who care to indulge in a mimosa or seasonal cocktail. The children’s menu includes things like peanut butter and jelly, ham and cheese, and egg salad finger sandwiches. They also get a teddy bear sugar cookie, gummy bears, and an assortment of sweets. The adult menu consists of lox, prosciutto, and plenty of sugary treats.

Teddy Bears for a Cause

The best part about the Teddy Bear Tea is that it is not only fun for those who attend, but also part of the proceeds go to those who are less fortunate. The Ritz-Carlton San Francisco donates to the Greater Bay Area Make-A-Wish Foundation, and the Ritz-Carlton Laguna Niguel donates to Children’s Hospital of Orange County. Dates, times and prices vary depending on which Ritz-Carlton Teddy Bear Tea you attend.

The Teddy Bear Tea at the Ritz-Carlton is sure to be an annual event that both adults and children will look forward to each holiday season.
