Experience a WINTER WONDERLAND in Walnut Creek at the 22nd Annual Teddy Bear Tea, where snowflakes hover overhead, evergreen trees twinkle with lights, and bears and other woodland animals share in a holiday-inspired tea party with you and your family.
Enjoyed by everyone from tiniest tot to the tallest and wisest of grown-ups, Teddy Bear Tea has been a tradition for over 20 years, gathering the community together during the holidays and raising much-needed funds for our nonprofit organization.

Guests share in a variety of savories, sandwiches and sweet treats, as well as a visit to “Bearland” for story time, crafts and a special holiday-themed photo opportunity. Kids can wear their “fancy dress,” practice party etiquette and drink real (decaffinated) tea or juice in china cups.
Each of the four tea times features a unique, custom menu designed specifically for the Teddy Bear Tea event and presented by one of our professional catering sponsors.
12/2 @ 11:00 a.m. Menu provided by Sunrise Bistro & Catering
12/2 @ 3:00 p.m. Menu provided by Absolute Celebrations Catering
12/3 @ 11:00 a.m. Menu provided by Checkers Catering
12/3 @ 3:00 p.m. Menu provided by Salt & Honey Catering
After enjoying the tasty tea buffet, enter the raffle for a chance to win fun prizes, including American Girl dolls, Disneyland tickets, gingerbread houses, toy baskets and more, and then purchase teddy bears, handmade jewelry, lavender wands and the ever-popular ribbon “halos” from the Holiday Boutique. And all kids take home party favors.
The annual Teddy Bear Tea event is made possible through the support of our sponsors and many volunteers. Proceeds go directly to support the education and garden programs at The Gardens at Heather Farm.
Advanced reservations are required. Seatings are at 11:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. each day. While all ages are welcome, this event is ideal for children ages 3-9. Children must be accompanied by an adult. Tickets are non-refundable.
