Calling all Downton Abbey fans!
Do you long for the days when you could lounge on a lovely, spring afternoon with your closest friends over a cup of tea and a cucumber sandwich? Who has time for that these days? You do — when the tea takes just two hours from your day and the proceeds from the tea benefit PRISM.
“Where is this tea?” you might ask
The Spring Tea is Saturday, April 21st at 2:30 p.m. at Holy Nativity Lutheran Church, 3900 Winnetka Avenue North in New Hope. It is coordinated by “Friends of PRISM.” You can make a reservation by calling 763-529-1350.
Keep reading to see why the small fee is such a great bargain:
- $15 for one
- $25 for two
- A table of 8 for $100
“What makes this so fun?” I hear you say
Who gets dressed up anymore? Remember how fun it used to be to dress to the nines? This is your chance. Take out your long dresses, heels and fun jewelry. And … don’t forget that snappy hat! Don’t have one? No problem, we’ll be providing hats for those who want them.
“But what about the food?” you might wonder
Oh, and what great food it is. There will of course be tea, coffee and lemonade. It wouldn’t be a tea without cucumber sandwiches. But it doesn’t stop there.
This is a three course extravaganza with:
- Five kinds of sandwiches
- Scones with clotted cream and jam, and
- Several scrumptious desserts
The most discriminating lady (or gent) will be more than satisfied.
“Who attends this soiree?” you might be thinking
This is a multigenerational event. Last year one family brought three generations — Grandma, Mom and daughter. Anyone who enjoys the finer things in life will enjoy this event.
Grab your friends and family. You can reserve a table for six or eight people. Show your children that there is more to life than drinking out of a plastic cup while wearing sweats.
“It sounds pretty nice, but is there anything else to tempt me to go?” you inquire
Yes, indeed! There will be a harpist strumming beautiful tunes while we sip. An arbor and a bench will provide a beautiful setting for photographs to help you remember the event. Jane, an experienced home economist, will fill us in on the finer points of an English tea.
And, best of all, you will know that your donation will be helping others benefit from PRISM’s services.
What could be better? So, what’s stopping you? Call today before all the spots are taken for this lovely event!
