Come to a special Alice in Wonderland Mad Hatters Tea Party from 1-3 pm on Saturday, May 10.
Organized by EOH board member Dode Page from Black Cat Antiques, the menu will feature English tea and raspberry lemonade, cucumber sandwiches, and a wonderfully delightful assortment of cakes, cupcakes, tarts, and cookies. We’ll be having our “Best Hat” Contest so design a hat for the tea or wear your favorite! There will be prizes for the funniest, most creative, most glamorous and prettiest! Have fun & be creative! More prizes if you find a dime, nickel or penny under your place setting.
Part of the festivities will include a talk by Dode Page, Hat Trends in History – with show and tell!
Proceeds from the fundraiser will help EOH to fund its free programs for kids and families as well as youth scholarships to workshops. The Tea is by reservation only, with seating for 32 people. Advance ticket sales are available for $18 each, $16 for EOH members and $8 for children by calling 315-691-3550.
Please come early to the opening of at the Earlville Opera House of the Celebrating 100 Years of Mothers photo exhibition of the remarkable women from our past, without whom none of us would be here today. Enjoy a public reception with refreshments from 11 am to 1pm for the Mothers photographs on display, with the exhibit remaining open through 3 pm. The EOH Artisan Gift Shop featuring over 35 regional artisans will also be open early before the Tea for Mother’s Day shopping.
