Ladies of all ages (and one gentleman) met to partake of the age old custom of afternoon tea on Saturday, May 19, 2012 at the Grand Army of the Republic Hall.
Lucille Wingard, founder of the Ladies of Victoriana tea society, presented “The Art & Mystery of Tea Etiquette.” Guests in attendance learned the history of afternoon tea and the proper way to “have” (not “take”) tea.
The tea was catered by Peggy Jo Whitman and Becky Peffer. In addition to the serving delectable food and delightful teas, they also furnished the table settings which were all unique and elegant. Their attention to the smallest details is what makes teas at the G.A.R. Hall so special.
Eight ladies participated in the “Best Dressed” contest. First place went to Laura Skorwski who wore a stunning ivory lacy dress and Dolly Webb was first runner up in a beautiful iridescent blue Victorian dress.
All in attendance had a delightful time and are looking forward to the more teas in the future at the G.A.R. Hall. Special thanks to Lucille Wingard for the photographs.
