The Sisterhood Afternoon Tea on Sunday, February 19, 3 pm-5 pm, will be a time to gather with friends old and new for a chat and to sample scones and jam, exquisite desserts, and tiny sandwiches. Attendees are encouraged to dress up for a traditional garden party – fancy hats encouraged!
We’ll enjoy a selection of loose-leaf teas fit for every taste, from classics to herbals. Refreshments are coming from local vendors: Goldie’s, Scott’s Baked Goods, Pasta LaFata, Barred Owl, Fiddler & Stone and Hemme Bros cheese, along with farmers’ market veggies.
Tea will be served in a more formal setting, with seating arranged in advance, so RSVP is required. Bring a friend – or two!
