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.

Fresh air and excercise

This past week was just what the doctor ordered. Sunshine and temperatures in the 50s and 60s made being up and out absolutely irresistible — for us and the spring flowers we’ve been waiting so (im)patiently for. Everything that, as of last week, still seemed tightly budded and winter-stunted is suddenly busting to bloom. The daffodils have started opening and, depending […]

I don’t want you to get too excited by the title of this post. Signs of spring are popping out, bit by bit, but we’re not seeing many flowers yet. We’re still waiting for the daffodils to make an appearance. That said, feel free to do a little dance if you want to (I do) because it won’t […]

This week the temperatures softened just enough to keep spring from hitting the snooze button again and made being outside in the gardens totally irresistible. We didn’t leave a lot in the Rose or North Gardens to cut back (we adhere to the tradition of putting those gardens “to bed” in the fall for the sake of […]
