WHERE: Blithewold's Dining Room

Just in time for the holiday's we're inviting you to an updated Tea experience in the Dining Room at Blithewold. Join us in welcoming our new partners, Ellie's Bakery, a sister concept to Four Diamond Award Winning Gracie's, Providence. As a result Tea at Blithewold is now a bit more "grace"-ful and "ellie"- gant.

Chef Melissa Denmark and owner Ellen Slattery have created and selected an assortment of sweet and savory seasonal items accompanied by their own spreads and jams to grace our already elegant setting.

Teas will be held by reservation during the week from Tuesday through Friday. There are two seatings each day, with tea times at either 1 p.m. or 3 p.m. The Teas are not suitable for very young children under 5 years old.
Prices for Tea include admission to the Mansion & Grounds, don't forget to leave time for touring!

The Fine Print

Our Teas are very popular which means space is limited. Because of that we are strongly urging that you make your reservations with a Visa or MasterCard. Tea "reservations" that are made with the promise of sending a check are not considered a confirmed reservation. Those "reservations" will be released if payment is not received 48 hours before your "reserved" time.

Please make every effort to be punctual for the Tea. We cannot hold your reservation for more than 15 minutes after your reserved time. For example a 1 p.m. reservation will only be held until 1:15 p.m., or 3 p.m. reservation will only be held until 3:15 p.m.

Cancellations for any reason must be made 24 hours in advance for a full refund.

    As storms go, this one (we’re calling it Juno?) was pretty great — at least for those of us without travel plans or emergencies. For me, it struck just the right balance between excitement from the big buildup in the media and bluster-full winds, and a kind of compulsory coziness. There was nothing to do for a whole night and […]
  • February at Blithewold “I Remember” (Jan 29, '15)
    The Christmas decorations are put away for another year, and Blithewold enters a hibernation of sorts — taking a well-earned rest before the activity and commotion of preparing for another season.  An icy wind is howling around the Mansion, rattling the windows on the third floor.  My mind turns to springtime and my favorite time […]
  • Learn something new — on fertilization (Jan 23, '15)
    When we get busy I’m apt to forget my quest to learn something new every day. But during the winter we have the time and plenty of opportunities in the way of classes, lectures, symposiums, trade and garden shows to make a habit of it again. And it’s a treat whether I’m learning something totally […]
