The event began two seasons ago when the Atlanta Lyric Theatre presented "Cinderella" at the . The event was held upstairs following performances. It was such a hit the Atlanta Lyric Theatre decided to make the tea an annual event.

"Little girls went wild over the idea of seeing a princess in person," Dianne Butler, director of marketing and community relations at Atlanta Lyric Theatre, said.

"It's evolved so organically, and it is so sweet to see little girls meet a real live princess," Butler added.

"When they come to the victorian Marlow House, which is decorated so beautifully, they are coming into a charming home and having tea, an idea from a bygone era.

"It's very rare for a tea to be such a traditional thing, and it's neat to see multiple generations come together."
