The Holidays are coming!

It is almost time again for this year's Teddy Bear Tea at The Roosevelt Hotel New Orleans.  Our elves are busily preparing for this popular event that delights and excites children of all ages!  At Teddy Bear Tea you will be taken on a holiday journey to Santa's Wonderland where Santa and Mrs. Claus will welcome you and your children while you enjoy a presentation of fancy tea sandwiches, scones, desserts, sparkling wine and more!  For the little ones, there will be hot cocoa, peanut butter and jelly & ham and cheese sandwiches, with holiday cookies and more!

Children 12 and under will receive this year's commemorative Roosevelt Teddy Bear.  Pictures with Santa will be available for purchase, Mrs. Claus will be reading her favorite Holiday Stories, and several Holiday Characters will parade through the Ballroom and visit with the children.
