Victorian Tea Parties

Nothing goes together quite like beautiful Victorian architecture and an elegant Victorian luncheon of tea cakes and sandwiches. Our tea parties have been so often requested, whether for a bridal shower, for a baby shower or for a children’s event, that we’ve added a “tea” page to our website. Tea parties are available in both a full-service or a station/buffet format, and the menu is customizable to your tastes and dietary restrictions. Read on for a sample menu, and call to discuss a booking.
