A Time for Dads and Daughters

Children enjoyed interacting with Beauty from Beauty and the Beast during the tea party.

Valley Cakes and Cafe invited fathers and daughters to be their guests for the Enchanted Daddy Daughter Tea Party, held on Sunday, February 12, at the Gathering Station in Scott Depot. The little girls dressed in fancy dresses and princess costumes, and dads wore their best clothing. The tea party, which is in its fourth year, has grown in popularity since its inception, with this year’s event drawing over 100 attendees.

Dads and daughters enjoyed dancing, desserts, games, and professional photographs. So-Kai Clubhouse hosted a craft table, where children could make and decorate miniature hand mirrors. Beauty, who was played by Lela Ruth Simpkins, danced and played with the little girls, as well as posed for photos.

Formerly located in the Commons building at Valley Park, Valley Cakes has moved operations to Poca. The establishment is now located at 165 Main Street, across the road from Dollar General. This is a temporary location as Valley Cakes will be moving into a permanent home at the Poca Plaza this fall. The establishment will be one of several new businesses in the plaza, which is owned by Putnam Holdings LLC.

“The Town of Poca has been welcoming,” owner Pam Fisher said, stating her appreciation for the large sign that the town erected to advertise her business.

“I have to say, we have been truly blessed,” Fisher posted on the Valley Cakes & Cafe Facebook page. “We have the most amazing, loyal customers and the Lord sure knew what He was doing when He sent the Mayor of Poca and his wife into our lives. Because of them we are able to open our doors back up sooner than we had anticipated.”

Valley Cakes offers catering, cakes, and lunch, and is open from Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. The next event hosted by Valley Cakes will be an Alice in Wonderland tea party with the Mad Hatter in April.
