Great Plans to Welcome in the Fall

Fall is my favorite time of the year. I love the changing of the color of the leaves , the cool evening, the clean crisp mornings and the renewal of the season...
I am planning the grand opening of  Studio E/Tea salon and the Fall harvest of berries, pumpkins and apples will wake the season up nicely.








I have great tea plans to welcome in the Fall and to keep the season warm and eventful.

Opening up my Tea Salon this year.

Soon I will be moving Lady's Estelle Tea Salon into it's new space. The move will take a couple of months, but hopefully by Fall Harvest Tea for the Grand Opening. Please feel free to follow the progress. It is going to be fun and exciting for me. This has been my dream



Today's progress on the Tea Salon. The old flooring was pulled up, preparing for the new one.



After new flooring, then a new paint job. All is going well.




  Keep your eye out for the Grand Opening.

Wonderful Living History Teas.



  American's Living History Teas
The June Tea article will introduce you to two historical tea venues in America.

The Molly Brown House Museum

  1340 Pennsylvania Street
Denver, CO 80203-2417
(303) 832-4092
mollybrown.org


 Its grand facade represents the Victorian Era- when people dressed like every day was a ball. This grand house was built to never go out of style, with lavish details carved out of rhyolite, sandstone and ornamental wood panels.

The home was decadently decorated and fit for a queen. Even the windows are ornately detailed stained glass and the walls are paved in gold. Let me say that again: Walls. Paved. With. Gold.


As it turns out, it wasn't just Molly Brown herself that was Unsinkable. Her 1889 home was set for demolition in 1970, until it was saved by Historic Denver and turned into a museum. Since then, it has taught more than two million visitors about Molly Brown's extraordinary life, including her commitment to activism and philanthropy.



                                                      Margaret "Molly" Brown (1867-1932)

 Molly Brown’s life represents the changes of the early 20th century, as manifested in the life of a woman who demonstrated the power of the individual spirit. 




  Special Programs at the House are costumed guided tours of the home, a theatre program focused on Victorian literature, and etiquette teas that educate on Victorian cultural customs.

 At this lovely House, you can go for a $10 Titanic tour, or a $25 Victorian Tea and Tour














  The Hearthside House Museum

 Great Road Historic District (Route 123)
 Lincoln, R.I.,
 http://hearthsidehouse.org/events/

 Hearthside is considered to be one of the finest examples of early nineteenth century Federal-style house in Rhode Island.
Popular folklore surrounding the construction of Hearthside states that in the early 1800’s, Stephen Hopkins Smith, a fellow in his 20’s, began to court a young lady from a “prominent Providence family”. He schemed to build a breathtaking home to sweep “Miss Prominent” off her feet. Construction on Hearthside got underway in 1810 and was completed in 1814. Meanwhile the courtship continued. When the house was done, Smith took a horse and buggy and went to Providence and asked the girl to come with him for a ride. As they approached the bend of Great Road, the girl clapped her hands and said, “What a beautiful house, but who would ever want to live way out in the wilderness.” Smith was heartbroken. He drove her back to Providence and never called on her again. In fact, he never married.

Hearthside is beautifully preserved and had been a private residence until 1996, when the Town of Lincoln purchased the property. In 2001, a group of citizens formed "Friends of Hearthside", a nonprofit organization whose purpose is to serve as stewards of the house and help preserve the property, while promoting its historical significance and accessibility to the public. Now an award-winning museum, Hearthside House is open frequently for guided tours, special events and exhibits, as well as by appointment for group tours


Afternoon Teas
It's a return to the gentle splendor of a bygone era at Hearthside, with spring flowers, elegant hats, delicate lace, dainty teacups and fancy finger foods as Friends of Hearthside hosts its annual Afternoon Tea in May. This event has become our most popular one, and always sells out so early ticket purchase is recommended. A different theme is featured each year, such as "the history of hats, the language of the fan, the language of flowers, the history of the parasol, etc. Prizes are awarded for most beautiful hats and raffle baskets are always a feature.


 


 
Admission for special exhibits and events varies according to event.
