The Devonshire Victorian Tea is an annual event hosted by the Episcopal Church Women (ECW). The event is a fund raiser and the proceeds are distributed by ECW to other ministries at St. Thomas Episcopal Church.
What do the ladies say about the event?
“Tea is not just a drink, it creates an atmosphere of elegance and attitude.
Some guests will arrive wearing vintage dresses and other hats and gloves.
They will be greeted by our impeccably dressed doormen who will give directions with expertise.
Our hostesses will welcome guests sporting outrageous hats full of veiling, flowers and feathers.
Enjoy wonderful treasures from Ye Olde Yorkshire Gift Shoppe, then enter our tearoom to beautiful music as you stroll through the room and enjoy looking at all the individually decorated tables, many from grandmothers’ attics.
Tea shall be served with tiny tea sandwiches, scones and delightful sweets.
So dig out your favorite hat, dress, or gloves and join us as we recreate that era for you!
PS. Vintage clothing is not required.”
