Afternoon Tea At Blithewold-Second Seating

WHEN: Wednesday, December 07, 2011 at 3:00PM - 4:00PM
WHERE: Blithewold Dining Room

Join us for a lovely afternoon treat during the hectic holiday season. Blithewold's informal tea includes our custom-blended tea served alongside sweet and savory items, including Bristol Bakery's scrumptious scones.

Teas will be held during the week from Tuesday through Friday. There are two seatings each day, with tea times at either 1:30 pm or 3 pm. The teas are not suitable for very young children. Price for tea is $12 per person, plus regular admission. Tickets will be sold inside the mansion.

We're taking a limited amount of reservations for each seating. Your reservation can only be made using this website (please, no calls). Please click on the "sign up for this" link above. PLEASE NOTE: If you don't see the "sign up for this" link at the top of the page, it's because of one of the two reasons listed below. We stop taking reservations one day before the Tea so that we can arrange the dining room accordingly. Or, guests have made reservations for the portion of the dining room that has been set aside for reserved seating. But don't worry, we are saving some seats to accommodate walk-ins for each Tea. Those seats will be given on a first come, first served basis. Or, you could make a reservation for another day!

$12 Members

Non-Member Pricing: $22 Adults, $21 AAA Members, $20 Seniors/Students, $14 Youths 6-17years

    I often tell people that we’re too busy in the gardens to get out much. That might sound like a complaint but it’s not. For one thing, I hate to miss anything here, and when we do take time out to visit to another garden, it’s a huge treat and I always come back inspired. […]
  • What to do with asparagus foliage (Sep 12, '14)
    I haven’t spent a lot of time in the vegetable garden this summer — Dan has been right on top of the planting, the weeds, and the harvests — but this week I found myself in there a couple of times. Gail, Betsy, the volunteers, and I had the pleasure of helping with a huge […]
  • Constructive criticism (Sep 05, '14)
    Our to-do list in September is blissfully short. The gardens are as lush as can be and just need to be coaxed along until frost or until we’re ready to start moving plants around (musical perennials) and preparing for winter. It has been so dry lately that the weeds have slowed down slightly, so we’re […]
