A Fashionable Tea
Saturday, March 24, 2018 ~ 2:00PM – 4:00PM
Enjoy an afternoon tea at Historic Sugartown. Indulge in a sumptuous four-course tea provided by Simpson House Tea Room. The tea will include a garden salad, assorted tea sandwiches, scones and dessert, served family style. The tea mistress at Simpson House has put together a special tea blend for Historic Sugartown, which will be the featured tea. During your tea, listen to a talk about women’s fashion of the 1860’s from historian and speaker Jane Peters Estes. Her program will explore the fashions of the era of the crinoline (or “hoop”) skirt. She addresses the myth of the 17″ waist and examines the reasons why a lady’s clothing could affect her lifestyle and health. Information is provided on everything from bonnets to reticules (purse).
At the end of the tea, Historic Sugartown’s c. 1880s General Store will be open for self guided tours.
The event will take place in Historic Sugartown’s Carriage Museum. Locate it by GPS by entering 273 Boot Road, Malvern, PA 19355.
