Steal a peek inside a century's-old jewelry box where the music lures and ballerinas regale. The 15th Annual Sugar Plum Fairy Tea Party in the Old Well Ballroom at the historic Carolina Inn benefits the Triangle Youth Ballet. Dancers from TYB bejeweled in flawless regalia and rich in character, silently welcome guests. Inside the ballroom, the tea party drips with chandeliers. Whirling dancers weave between tables while young'uns in Sunday best sip lemonade and stretch for trays of lined cookies.
