New Company Offers Victorian Tea Experience

Victorian Tea Time is a specialty catering company that brings authentic 1860s-era tradition of Merry Old England into your home. To create an authentic atmosphere, the hostess, outfitted in Victorian costume, welcomes the guests to a table adorned with a lace tablecloth and appropriate china. As Victorian music plays softly in the background, the hostess gets the party started with a brief history of the tradition of English Afternoon Tea.

Proprietor Carmen Russo explains that Victorian Tea Time gives a healthy and educational theme to such events as baby and bridal showers, holiday parties, birthdays or an afternoon get-together for the girls. Call 600-2870 for more information.
