Victorian Valentines Tea

I love to find activities outside our home that allow the girls to explore new learning experiences.   It’s even better when those experiences are fun and extremely well done!   Such was the case this past weekend when Olivia was privileged to attend a Victorian Valentine’s Tea at the  Woodrow Wilson Library and Museum.


The Educational Staff did a wonderful job of teaching the girls about proper etiquette and Victorian period life.   While attending, the girls made calling cards, handmade Valentines, fans and a lovely little glove/poem.

The highlight of course had to be the tea itself.  The young ladies were served a three course tea (although, I’m sure a few of the items weren’t too popular with this young crowd.)   The menu included:

Spiced Hot Tea
Chicken Puffs
Cucumber and Cream Cheese Sandwiches
Pineapple and Cream Cheese Heart Sandwiches
Heart Sugar Cookies
Chocolate Covered Strawberries
Miniature Cupcakes

All of the girls were being so prim and proper when we went to pick them up.  I for one was greatly impressed with this 2 hour step back into time.  Olivia was all but giddy and poor Lindsey is praying they have it again when she’s 7!

Both of the local news stations did coverage on the event.   Olivia is featured in this clip pretty often.  (Be patient for the mini-commercial to pass).

Pin It!
