A table laden with sweets including gingerbread men, truffles, cloud cookies, macaroons and chocolate croissants centered the Governor's Mansion Grand Hall on Dec. 18 for the First Lady's Children's Tea.

Children and their parents or grandparents rounded the buffet, placing their selections of sweets and finger sandwiches on the mansion's china. They enjoyed their treats at tables covered in gold damask and centered with gold branches holding glass ornaments made by Arkansas artist James Hayes. The buffet was lined with a garland of evergreens and centered with a massive arrangement of pine, cedar, eucalyptus and red roses.

Through a partnership between a local Red Cross chapter and first lady Susan Hutchinson, 15 families with a deployed or about to be deployed parent were invited as special guests. Another special guest was Santa Claus, who visited with children and after remarks by the first lady, led the children in singing Christmas songs.
