A Memorable Victorian Christmas Tea - December 13th, 2019

Maria Meredith's Victorian Christmas Afternoon Tea was simply wonderful. The tiny sandwiches, the baked goods, the Xmas crackers, the prosecco, the decorations throughout her house, the party favors (tea and walnuts), and most spectacular… her lecture on Victorian Christmases. A truly memorable afternoon!

From L to R: Maria Meredith, Debbie Heller, Linda Donnelly, Carol Osten, Rebecca Freedman, Carol Shabe, Judy O'Donnell, Carole Reiss and Pat King

On April 5th, 2019, the All Things Victorian group met at the home of Liz Hisey to discuss Victorian Funerals and Etiquette. Liz prepared a funeral tea with scrumptuous funeral pies, cakes and biscuits that she baked herself from authentic Victorian recipes. Her presentation table had actual samples of funeral announcements, sympathy cards, photos, etc. After the tea, Rebecca Freedman covered the topic of the postponed March meeting: The Role of Women in Victorian times. It was delightful that so many came dressed in “Widow's Weeds & Weeping Veils” as in Liz’s source book.
