How about celebrating Mother’s Day in style with an authentic high tea?
Everyone is invited to the McMinnville Warren County Senior Center May 13 for tea at 1 p.m. All mothers and daughters are special guests, but any mother figures, aunts, grandmothers, sisters, etc. are welcome also.
One might ask, just what exactly is “high tea?” The 19th century afternoon tea origins show the afternoon tea was mainly experienced by the more influential folks. For industry workers, tea time had to wait until after work, with more hearty dishes added to the menu. Workers needed sustenance after a day of work, complete good strong tea to revive spirits.
Tickets for the Mother’s Day Tea are $5 each, and include hot tea or fruited tea, scones, tea sandwiches and assorted desserts. Sue and Lester Sullivan will provide entertainment for the occasion.
“This is a lovely opportunity for mothers and daughters to come together to share some time together over refreshments,” said Center director Connie Smith.
The Center is located at 809 Morrison Street, and can be reached by calling 931-473-6559.
