Enjoy a charming reminder of bygone days! The public is invited to join us again this summer for afternoon tea in our lovely outdoor setting surrounded by beautiful gardens on TWO Sundays in July. This event becomes more popular every year! The air will be sweet with fragrance and the colors of the flowers in bloom will be magnificent. Enjoy garden music playing in the background while you are served a delicious menu of buttery scones, succulent savories, heavenly desserts, and tea. Each table will be elegantly set with flower centerpieces and fine dinnerware. Wear your favorite Victorian hat and come by yourself or with a friend, or invite a group! Tables seat eight guests. A reservation to one of our old fashioned Teas makes a lovely gift for a friend. Children at least 8 years old may attend if accompanied by an adult. Be sure to reserve early! Seating is limited! Cost: $45 per person.
