Cakes, cocktails and castles.
That’s what’s on offer these school holidays at Mary Eats Cake in Montrose, which is holding a fairytale-themed high tea just in time for the school holidays.
A special treat for the little princes and princesses in your life, the themed high tea includes a range of activities and delightfully themed food to keep your little ones entertained.
Sarah De Witt, owner at Mary Eats Cake, Montrose, invited parents to bring their kids along.
“It was about putting on a special event, for the communities out this way,” Ms De Witt said.
“It’s a fairytale-themed high tea for the first week of the school holidays.
“There’s a big buffet of high tea, cupcakes, cookies, popcorn … there’s also a live show fomr a local fairy who will be doing a magic show, and a craft area with facepainting.”
“It’s just a really nice time and offers all the things that your kids can enjoy for a special occasion.”
There will be plenty of sweet and savoury nibbles for parents, too, including the opportunity to have some quiet tea away from all the fairytale excitement
Though, Ms De Witt said parents were quite welcome to dress up too.

Celebrating winter is one of the things Warburton does best and The River of Light Winter Festival is just one of the events that gets locals stepping away from the fireside to enjoy the season.
Local events team Bear and Moon Productions is presenting The River of Light Winter Festival 2018 for Warburton and all the Upper Yarra community on Saturday, 4 August at the Arts Centre Warburton and along the Yarra River from 5pm.
Aimed at showcasing both the beauty of Warburton itself, as well as celebrating local community, local businesses, producers and growers, the free family-friendly event will be a hub of heart-warming winter activity!
Organisers Sam Watson and PheobeMoon launched the festival last year and have been busy at community workshops creating wonderful lanterns for the walk.
The festival will start this year with the seasonal community dinner and live music before heading down to the Yarra River for the walk.
“This year we’ll have the dinner in the hall first and lantern walk will come later,” Sam said.
“It will be a bit darker and the lanterns can really shine, and then we’ll head back to the hall for desert and tea and more live music.”
Sam said that the generous support of Bendigo Community Bank Warburton and Yarra Junction, along with Yarra Ranges Council, meant the festival was a free community event and there was an open invitation to all members of the Upper Yarra and Yarra Ranges communities to join in the wonderful winter-warming happenings.
To make the most of the festival, remember to rug up (really rug up) because magical as it is in Warburton in winter, it’s best enjoyed at this time of the year with warm hands, warm feet and, of course, a warm heart!
