STAMFORD, Conn. - The Stamford Historical Society will hold its eighth annual Victorian Tea Party on Sunday.
Tea party goers will get to drink Harney Tea out of a real silver service, and there will also be a presentation of the societys current exhibit P.O. High Ridge Connecticut: the Evolution of a Country Village, a press release said. There will also be a tea-themed raffle.
Its wonderful to see the surprise of people who have never attended a tea having a cup of well-prepared tea served to them by a gracious lady pouring from a silver teapot into a china cup, Jane Flounders, chair of the event, said in the release.
The exhibit focuses on the importance of basket weaving as a cottage industry in Stamford's past. The display will be at the museum until June.
