Women are invited to have a spot of tea Saturday when the Elizabethtown Heritage Council & Woman’s Club Christmas Tea gets underway at the Historic State Theater complex.
“I think this is our 10th or 11 year,” said Elizabethtown Heritage Council Executive Director Dana Beth Lyddan.
The formal tea is at 2 p.m. at the First Federal Gallery of the building and is a “ladies only” event.
The event features three different blends of tea and a selection of “savories and sweets,” Lyddan said.
“And it’s all homemade,” she added.
The Severns Valley Strings will be on hand as well.
“They do background music during the tea,” Lyddan said.
Tables of eight can be reserved for $20 per person or $160 per table, and reservations must be made by today.
“It’s a fund-raiser for the Heritage Council and the Woman’s Club,” Lyddan said.
The event typically pulls in a good crowd.
“Our largest tea we had was 204,” Lyddan said. Average attendance, she said, is about 150-160.
“It’s a big deal,” Lyddan said.
The Christmas tea also includes high school student servers.
“It’s a great way to kick off the Christmas season,” Lyddan said.
