Downton Abbey Tea – May 2015

Downton Abbey may only have one season left, but our Downton Abbey Teas are still going strong.  Our latest Downton-inspired Tea Event was held on Sunday, May 3rd.  As always, ladies and gents came dressed in period attire and experienced a step back in time to 1920’s England.  Some of the highlights this time around were the 1929 Rolls Royce on display, compliments of Early American Auto Repair, the wonderful British-themed delicacies from Chef Tona, special speaker Marsha Richards from Tea for All Reasons, and some spontaneous waltzing on the front porch from two of our servers, Alfred and Daisy — er, I mean August and Jackie.  Oh, and did we mention the weather was FABULOUS?  We hope you enjoy these favorite moments….
