Eloise at NYC's landmark Plaza

This past weekend my daughter and I shared a wonderful first time experience, high tea at the Plaza! 
The Eloise boutique is a must visit for fans of Eloise! This cute poster was framed and available for purchase. This got me thinking about how I framed a bunch of dust jackets from my daughter's favorite books and hung them in her play castle! A fun design touch for parents looking to add a little personalization to a child's space.
There are rooms within the Eloise boutique that can be rented for the ultimate "Eloise at the Plaza" party!
The lighting fixtures are perfect for a little girl's space. I adore the paint job.
I desperately wanted to see the entire pint size sideboard in the background...it appears to be adorable! Would that not be cute in a little girl's room for stowing toys and games?
An Eloise mailbox for letters from fans!
Have you been to the Eloise boutique? It's a special and memorable treat! Do you find it charming?

Eloise is my favorite and I just love the plaza. Such a great mom! Here we go to the Four Seasons for tea (though usually just the adults!) xx

Oh I have such fond memories of staying at the Plaza when I was a little girl. Our childhood dog was even named Eloise as a result. Fun outing for a mother/daughter!

Absolutely charming! What a fun treat that must have been! And the sideboard would be beautiful in a little girl's room! Very sweet post. Thanks for sharing. :)

That is seriously too cute, but don't think my boys would be amused:) So guess I will have to twist my nieces arm when she comes in for a visit:) Looks like the perfect day for a "young lady" to spend an afternoon...love it!

I would go! With a house full of boys, it's more like Tee Time at the Country Club :) XO, Kelly

I can just picture you and Ella enjoying this mother-daughter moment!!! Can I borrow Ella and go to tea? I just don't think my boys would go for all the pink.

The Eloise boutique sadly was not around when I was your daughter's age but High Tea at the Palm Court was and we had many memorable moments with our grandmother there when we visited the States. Would love the see the boutique now, though!

Yes..this place is very charming! I would love to take my daughter there! When is your daughter's party? I know you said sometime in March- Right? I haven't done anything on the Barbie party yet..I know- bad right? It's been crazy at work so I haven't had much time and if I do have time- I'm so exhausted!
