The 16th annual Victorian Tea Party is set for Saturday, May 5, 2018, from noon until 4:00pm at the Henderson Church of Christ, 240 White Avenue. Continuing renovations at the historic N.B. Hardeman House forced a change of venue for the event hosted by the Freed-Hardeman University Associates.
The tea party provides ladies, young and more mature, an opportunity to dress up and step back in time when life proceeded at a more leisurely pace. They can while away an afternoon enjoying a full English tea and learning more about the Victorian Age.
This year’s menu will feature favorites from the past as well as the debut of new items. Tea party sandwiches will include cucumber and spicy pimento cheese. The selection of baked goods includes orange cream scones with cranberry butter, bacon-cheddar scones, lemon buttermilk tarts and cherry almond shortbread cookies. In addition, guests may enjoy minted chocolate mousse and herbed cocktail crackers. Featured teas will be Peach Dream Iced Tea, a Darjeeling and Strawberry Oolong.
In addition to the tea, ladies may enjoy age-appropriate activities. Girls may try decorating fashions for Victorian paper dolls, dressing up in fancy dresses and making butterfly wands. Ladies are invited to make hand-lettered cards and learn the language of Victorian fans. The tea boutique will offer for sale a selection of teas, teapots and other tea paraphernalia, as well as jewelry and other items. A photographer will be on hand to capture the memories.
The FHU Associates are comprised of women in various locations who support Christian education by raising funds for scholarships. Typically, they contribute approximately $75,000 annually to FHU. Since their inception fifty years ago, they have raised more than $3 million through a variety of projects.
The Victorian Tea Party is a major event in this fund-raising effort. Tickets are $20 in advance and $22 at the door for adults and teens. Children aged 3-10 will be admitted for $15 in advance or $17 at the door. These may be purchased at the FHU Welcome Center, Knoell Family Dentistry, online or by calling 731- 989-6000.
