A local coffee shop is attempting to set aside one day each month to make children's dreams come true.

Sisters Antiques Coffee Bar, 123 E. National Ave., Brazil, has set up two specific days for boys and girls.

The Princess Party, is tentatively scheduled to take place once a month. Girls ages 5-10 are welcome to the business at 11 a.m., while girls ages 2-4 are welcome at 2:30 p.m.

Cost is $25.

"The girls get to be a princess," Coffee Bar representative Brian Pierce said.

The business is owned and operated by sisters Pam Hopkins and Vickie Lawhorn. In addition to the sisters and Pierce, Alyssa Moore also works at the establishment.

During the Princess Party, girls will receive their own custom-made tutu, a tiara and their own princess title. In addition, they will have the opportunity to have their picture taken with a specialized backdrop.

Following the event, a tea party will take place for all the children.

"They will also get a sash with their name on it," Pierce said.

Hopkins said the first Princess Party went so well, more have been planned.

"We just did it once and such an overflow, we decided to do it once a month," she said.

Because the Princess Party had such a good turnout, the business has elected to offer the Knights of the Round Table, for boys.

"We designed it for boys," Hopkins said. "But it can be for girls, too. We felt like we needed something for boys."

The first Knights of the Round Table event is scheduled for Saturday, May 21, at 1 p.m.

All young boys interested in "Knighthood" may attend.

Hopkins said games dealing with skill, bravery and intelligence will be offered.

"All the boys will get a sword and shield," she said. "They all have to have something to take home with them. I think it should be a lot of fun. We really don't have anything like that in Brazil."

"This became a spinoff," Pierce added. "It will be a test of their 'Knighthood.'"

The "Knighted" boys will also be able to take part in a feast at the round table in the coffee bar. A king will be present as will the royal court, Merlin the Magician, a Court Jester and the Royal Dragon.

"The whole idea is to have a comfortable environment," Pierce said.

What fun for the kids to do. Great thing you are doing. The memories begin when you are a child. I wish we had that growing up. Love your concept of the whole thing.
