Afternoon Tea Party
Afternoon tea was introduced in England by Anna, the seventh Duchess of Bedford, in the year 1840. The Duchess would become hungry around four o’clock in the afternoon. The evening meal in her household was served fashionably late at eight o’clock, thus leaving a long period of time between lunch and dinner. The Duchess asked that a tray of tea, bread and cake be brought to her room during the late afternoon. This became a habit of hers and she began inviting friends to join. Her best friend was Lady Cordelia. The two had a falling out of the worst kind and Lady Cordelia moved to Canada and now is inviting her new friend to tea.
Lady Cordelia’s Afternoon tea is a fashionable social event and you must dress appropriately.
IMPORTANT: One person should buy tickets for the whole table so you all sit together.
