A reminder that our May Day Tea Party is geared more towards children. Parents are more than welcome to attend and at least one parent must accompany children, however this will not be a traditional high tea setting. There will be elements of an English tea, but not an elaborate spread like a traditional high tea. We will have two teas to select from, as well as a non tea option for kids (juice). There will be sweets and savories to snack on for guests.
