While there are certainly other ways to fill the numbers for which a single father doesn't have the brush or the paint, I've supplemented with my own appropriately gentle ideas about manners and lady-like behavior with the assistance and reinforcement of some great platonic female friends.

That's just what I did for The Second Beautiful Daughter's 10th birthday a few years ago. In addition to the spacious second-floor reception room that Charlotte's Tea Room boasts, tea, sandwiches, sweets and more are served in a formal manner to the guest of honor and her party. For a reasonable additional fee, an etiquette consultant can provide the context and practice of ladylike behavior at such events.
