Liberty Hall Hosts Esteem-Building Event For Girls

UNION – On Sunday, Aug. 14, at 2 p.m., girls ages 5 – 13 will come together at the historic Liberty Hall Mansion and Museum (home to the first governor of New Jersey), to learn about self-esteem, etiquette, and the history of tea at the third annual OMG! Tea Party. They will also have a chance to play games with staff in traditional colonial attire, munch on gourmet treats, tour the museum’s tearooms, and talk one-on-one with Miss New Jersey Teen USA 2011 Savannah Schechter.

“The OMG! Tea Party started in 2009 as a way to provide young girls with the opportunity to experience the tradition of tea and build self esteem,” said Shakira Johnson, owner of Johnson PR & Events. “In general, today’s society does not promote the true value and beauty of women. As a result many young girls grow up with a lack of confidence and low self worth. The purpose of the OMG! Tea Party is to help counterbalance this trend by encouraging respect for one’s self and consideration for others, at the same time allowing the girls to have a wonderful experience that is truly out of the ordinary.”


Girls can also come with their mother, grandmother, relative, family friend, BFFs (best friends forever) or even their father. Adults sit at the table with their child during the entire program making for great photos and a wonderful bonding experience. The location — on the lawn of the Liberty Hall Mansion right next to their beautiful rose garden — will impress. There is also a hedge maze, carriage house, and many other activities that the children and adults can explore together.

“I am very excited to attend the OMG! Tea Party! I absolutely love the idea of helping to improve young girls self esteem and am truly honored to be a part of such a wonderful event. And the Liberty Hall Mansion is such a beautiful location to have a tea party. This is going to be a lot of fun, I can’t wait,” said Savannah Schechter, Miss New Jersey Teen USA 2011.

Admission for the OMG! Tea Party starts at $35 per person. An early bird price of $30 per person is available until June 15. For more information visit or contact 1-732-713-1167.
