Enjoy a summer afternoon that’s both elegant and fun. Come with your girlfriends, moms or granddaughters to the Victorian Carriage House for a formal tea party, complete with scones, tea sandwiches, assorted sweets, brewed tea in pretty cups, and ice cold pink lemonade. (Of course, gentlemen are welcome as well.) Dress up as much as you like ... hats and gloves or even complete Victorian outfits are welcome but not required. You can even participate in a fashion show after the tea -- a prize will be awarded for the best ensemble. (Parasols, picture hats, gloves and other elegant accessories are available in our Victorian Gift Shop, open daily from 9 to 5.) Stroll the gardens while you’re here and pose for photos in your finery. Flower arrangements -- furnished by the McMinnville Garden Club, Hoe ‘n Hope Garden Club, and Warren County Master Gardeners -- will be given as door prizes. Music from the Victorian era will be provided by Smithville pianist Susan Hinton. $22 for adults; $15 for children 10 and under. RSVP by Wednesday, July 31 (Please call or e-mail to make reservations.)
