21st annual Christmas Tea benefits local charity
December 06, 2013The Bonsall Woman's Club invites one and all to its annual Christmas Tea.
This year's Tea will be held at the Pala Mesa Resort on Thursday, Dec. 12 from 11 a.m to 3 p.m. The theme of this year's event is "Santa's Workshop." The Tea promises to offer yet another one of its exceptional ways to bring in the holiday season.
The entrance will be lined with decorated three foot-high Christmas trees and themed baskets. Examples of such themed baskets are: wine, chocolate, gourmet cooking, product and hair services, art (art work, jewelry and certificates to local restaurants). There will also be a money tree. Tickets to win one of the trees of baskets will be available for purchase at the event. Simply place them in the container by your favorite item, and keep your fingers crossed. You must be present to win.
The tables are individually decorated by one of the Woman's Club's members who will be using their own crystal and china. The custom-designed centerpiece at each table will present an initial attraction as you enter the main ballroom of the resort. Each centerpiece will be available for sale at the conclusion of the tea. The themed background music will be provided by the Barbara Chahbazian Trio.
In the hallway will be items for sale such as crochet hats, scarves, and ear warmers, denim bags and aprons, embroidered tea towels that look like little dresses, hand-made tree ornaments and more. Most of these items are one-of-a-kind and make special gifts for the holiday season. There will also be bone china tea cups filled with either a small plant or candy.
The tea will include a variety of delicious finger sandwiches and desserts. The main entertainment will be provided by the award-winning Norm Sullivan Middle School Show Choir.
This is the Bonsall Woman's Club primary fundraiser of the year. All proceeds will benefit local charities. Some of the charities who have received donations in the past are the Boys and Girls Clubs and the San Diego Burn Institute of North County, the Foundation for Senior Care, Fallbrook Music Society, REINS (therapeutic horsemanship for the disabled) and more.

Box 129, Fallbrook, CA, 92088. Checks must be received by Dec. 5 to ensure your seat. There will be a no-host bar. Pala Mesa is located at 2001 Old Highway 395, Fallbrook.
