In the spring of 2007, Hearthside introduced the American GirlTM Doll Tea Party for young girls along with their mothers and grandmothers as a special event they can share with their dolls. Wearing their Sunday finery and toting their favorite doll, the Tea has proven to be so popular that it now is held over two days, with four seatings in order to accommodate the numbers of guests who come each year. The tea is an elegant afternoon of tea, lemonade, miniature sandwiches and dainty sweets, as well as a crash course in proper Victorian etiquette. The Tea event led to a Christmas event, and eventually to a Garden Party held in August.

All of the American Girl Doll events continue to be quite popular and have given hundreds of girls and their families some very special memories from their experience. All three of these annual events center around the American Girl DollTM historical character Samantha Parkington, a nine-year old orphan raised by her wealthy and very proper grandmother in 1904. That story coincides with the year that Hearthside got its name and really captures the essence of what it was like growing up in Victorian America. History comes to life and is made more interesting for the girls as they experience firsthand in an actual mansion how Samantha lived during the first years of the 20th century.
