Another successful Edwardian Tea Party on July 25 was enjoyed by almost 70 ladies, resplendent in their colourful hats and elegant dresses. The ladies were treated to a feast of wide selection of cakes and savoury delicacies on tiered plates, served with tea or coffee in china redolent of yesteryear. Musical entertainment was provided by Miss Jessica Stroja on the 1870’s piano on the drawing room of the house. The wide verandah overlooking Moreton Bay provides a very fitting location for our popular tea parties, and since the word has spread these special events fill up very quickly. So, if you and your friends fancy dressing up and enjoying an elegant morning or afternoon tea, look out for the dates of next year’s parties, and book your places without delay.
