WHEN: Friday, November 28, 2014 to Friday, January 2, 2015
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.

Garden Bouquet Making with Blithewold’s Gardens Manager Gail Read
(May 15, '15)
It’s not often anymore that my posts fall on Garden Bloggers Bloom Day and I’m thrilled for the excuse to post endless pictures of what’s happening on the grounds right now. The daffodils have pretty much gone by, except for the extra-pretty latest ones, but spring is ready to move on and so am I. May […]
Stop and smell the daffodils
(May 08, '15)
Of all the seasons, spring is the one that puts every sense on high alert. We’re all eyes for the colors, have sharp ears for frog and bird songs (we heard the orioles this week), and those of us not plagued by allergies have been breathing so deeply to catch every scent we’re getting lightheaded. Or is it […]
The Trip on the Lusitania
(May 01, '15)
In April 1910 Bessie and William McKee, with Marjorie and 11-year old Augustine, took a 2-month long trip to Europe taking in the major cities and traveling first-class all the way. They sailed on Cunard’s R.M.S. Carmania from New York to Liverpool, England, where they were met by their own chauffeur, Krohe, in their […]
