Past Events 

           Lady Estelle's Etiquette Tea at Hearthside 2008
It is important to teach little girls of today the Victorian  rule of etiquette, the right things to do at the right time. Little girls want to be pretty, so we as mothers and teachers must teach them how to act pretty.
In the Victorian times, little girls were treated as little women and were expected to obey the same etiquette rules as adults did.

Today, I  held a Victorian Tea and invited a local girl's  scout troop from North Providence. They enjoyed tea while hearing how little girls of their age were taught to be little ladies. I taught them tea etiquette, how to be gentle,  speak quietly, sit and stand tall and enjoy a good cup of tea.

 It was a memorable experience for the girls and myself. I am sure they will remember this day for the rest of their lives. I am pleased. I plan to do more of these Etiquette Teas in the future. 
                          Birthday Tea Party for Neomy and Noelya - The Twins.2009
Happy birthday to Neomy and Noelya!
These two sister have been waiting for this day to arrive. After meeting me at their friend's birthday tea, they decided that they must have a birthday tea party with Lady Estelle.
After their gracious introduction we sat down to enjoy the taking of tea and a lesson in tea etiquette.
It was a fun afternoon of talking girl talk, creating spring hats from news papers, modeling and dancing to classical music.
   Youth Spring Tea Party! 2009
At Lady Estelle's Tea Salon
210 Ledge Street, Providence, RI 02904
When all the guest arrive and after picture taking, we entered the tea area to enjoy the treats.
The beautiful young people sat and eat while showing their learned tea etiquette and played tea BINGO.
 The young ladies had the pleasure of trying on hats from Lady Estelle's collection. What a sight.

It was a memorable afternoon spent with young time travelers.
                                              Mother's Day Tea at Hearthside.2008
In Celeibration of Mother's Day

Mother's Day may be attributed to Anna Jurvis, who swore at her mother's gravesite in 1905 to dedicate her life to her mother's project and establish a day to honor mother's, living and dead.

In 1908, the first bill was presented in the U.S. Senate proposing the establishment of Mother's Day, but it was not until 1914, after years of lobbying by Anna Javis, that the U.S. Congress adopted it as an official holiday.

Wearing  a white carnation( Anna Jarvis mother's favorite flower) is to honor a deceased mother; wearing a pink carnation is to honor  a living mother.

Anna Jarvis became increasing increasingly concerned over the commercialization of Mother's day, and she opposed the selling of flowers and the use of greeting card She wanted it to be a day of sentiment and felt buying cards were a poor excuse for the personal letter which should be written.

Anna Jarvis never had children of her own. She died in 1948, blind and penniless, and was buried next to her mother in a cemetery in the Philadelphia area

I want to thank you for joining us today at Hearthside, for our Mother's Day Tea!

We hope you enjoyed your time with us.
Happy Mother's Day from the Friends of Hearthside.


The Hearthside House Traditional Afternoon Tea will be held the day before Mother's Day on Saturday, May 8th , 2010 at 1:00 p.m.  Tickets are $20 per person.
 The theme of this year's Tea is "Pearls and Lace" so be sure to complement your outfit with a string of pearls and of course, a fancy hat!  Prizes are awarded for most beautiful and most unusual hats.


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...
The tea salon has been quiet, but 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.
