English Tea Event at 1868 Crosby House
In an age when everyone is constantly busy and short of time, what could be more enjoyable than taking time with your family and friends to indulge in a delightful treat? Return to the romantic era of grace and elegance and leave the hurry up world behind as you savor a proper English tea.
Starched linens and lace, gleaming old silver and delicate assortments of china await you at the historic 1868 Crosby House.
Traditional English sweets and savories will be served in proper Victorian style as you gather together for a time of conversation by the fire, on the summer porch or in the walled gardens.
While you and your guests are here, you are welcome to enjoy a leisurely walk through the perennial gardens, find quiet contemplation on the bench overlooking the lily pond’s waterfall or congregate in the formal parlor for a time of relaxed conversation.
Embellishments may be added to your personal event. Some suggestions are: Classical musician(s), poetry readings, parlor games, croquet on the lawn, adorning fancy hats, or that something special you create to surprise your guests!
