Mass Audubon Visual Arts Center hosts an afternoon tea for children and a favorite stuffed companion.
I had the recent pleasure of attending the Mass Audubon Society’s Teddy Bear Tea at the Visual Arts Center in Canton on Sunday.

The Mass Audubon Society Visual Arts Center held a Valentine's Day-themed Teddy Bear Tea for children and their special, cuddly friends on Sunday.

There was no shortage of things to eat from assorted tea sandwiches, which included many choices from the traditional cucumber and cream cheese sandwiches and smoked salmon to the not-so-traditional but very kid-friendly, bear-shaped peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, teas, hot cocoa, sherbet punch and all kinds of brownies, cupcakes, and even teddy bear shaped Peeps. Fun and delicious!
