Literature is meant to reflect life, so we’d like to use food to make that reflection truly believable with our tea parties. Food can provide insights into our favorite heroes, heroines, and mischief-makers. Food can evoke smells and flavors that bring a setting to life and stir up emotions that deepen a reader’s connection in the story.
We realize that tea parties might be less of a couples thing and probably more of a girlfriends or mother/daughter thing (not saying that men wouldn’t enjoy this, too), and that bookings may not necessarily be from your own household bubble. So, we’re able to space tables 6 feet apart in the Flamingo Lounge and open the windows to make it as safe as possible for our tea party guests. Currently, we are only booking one group at a time; however, the bookstore WILL be open to the general public, but nobody except your group will be allowed inside the Flamingo Lounge during your tea party.
We’re doing a “soft launch” of this with only a few openings to start. Keep an eye on our social media (FB & IG: CapitalBooksOnK) for announcements of more dates.
Choose which themed tea party you’d like to reserve. Tea blends and foods are subject to change due to seasonal items and/or your dietary restrictions. We’ll do our best to accommodate your needs.
Cost: $35 per person*
Credit Card required to reserve a time.
*Because food will be purchased and prepared for only your group, we require a 24-Hour cancelation notice, should you not be able to make it. Any cancelations made less than 24 hours from your reservation will be charged to your credit card unless we find a replacement for your reserved time.
