Once again, this special event on the verandah of the house was thoroughly enjoyed by over 50 ladies elegantly dressed for the occasion. A tasty array of delicate sweets and savouries on tiered plates, and tea and coffee served in fancy china cups and saucers added to the atmoshere reminiscent of past eras.
The guests were entertained by Ormiston House Volunteer Miss Jessica Stroja, who played the grand piano in the drawing room of the house. Many guests took advantage of the sunny morning and strolled across the lawn, or wandered leisurely through the rooms.
These themed tea parties have proved very popular, with the July event already fully booked.
