For Victorian Tea Parties with groups of 10 or more, Hostess Dot Boulware, in authentic Victorian attire, will lead you through the charming ritual of a Victorian Tea Party that includes treats such as, tea sandwiches with homemade scones, clotted cream, homemade preserves, fresh pastries and cakes. Male and female guests are encouraged to model Victorian hats for photographs that will make the memory last a lifetime. In the early 1900’s, Edgewood became the first restaurant – The Blue Tea Pot – In Charles City, so the tradition of afternoon tea has existed here for a long time. An expert lecture by Mrs. Boulware takes you back to a wonderful time and glorious lifestyle.
