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 host tea parties one Sunday every month for three groups of up to four people.

We’ve pre-selected which tea party theme we’ll be setting for each month, so sign up for the one you’d like.

Cost:
$50 per person
$35 for children under age 10

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.
