We've filled all the tables set aside for reservations at this particular Tea. Not to worry, there are still some tables available for walk-ins on a first come, first served basis. Or, feel free to make a reservation for another day/time during Daffodil Days.
Tea at Blithewold
Walk the grounds, tour the mansion and then join us in the Dining room for a lovely afternoon treat. Blithewold's informal Tea features our own custom-blended tea served alongside sweet and savory items including one of our favorite bites -- Bristol Bakery's scrumptious scone!
