Since the early 18th century, Afternoon Tea has been the social event, an opportunity for society ladies to exchange pleasantries over gourmet tidbits and the ever important tea. This spring, the Kell House cordially invites you to share in this history and enjoy tea in our gardens.
Saturday, May 11 from 3 p.m. - 5 p.m. enjoy your choice of finger sandwiches, assorted delectable desserts, and a variety of both hot and iced tea. Stroll back through time with a tour of the Kell House Museum. Take a chance with our raffle of a Brahmin hand bag donated by Dillard's. And show off your hat at our 4 p.m. Hat Extravaganza.
Prizes will be given in four categories: Vintage, Humorous, Unforgettable, and Children's Unique. Graciously sponsored by Burger King, Overhead Door, and Star Brite Cleaners, Kell House's Garden Tea will be served by local celebrity waiters. Tickets are just $20 per adult and $10 per child (12 years old and under), or reserve a table for your group of 8 for $150. A table decorating competition is available for those who sponsor or reserve a table.
