Enjoying Tea for Two (or One or Three)
on the Garden Veranda in AR
On the second Tuesday of every month, visitors with reservations can merrily join a tea party on the garden veranda at Garvan Woodland Gardens. Located within Hot Springs National Park, Hot Springs, AR, the gardens serve tea at 3 p.m., complete with all the fixings -- specialty teas, delectable scones, finger sandwiches and rich desserts.
Each monthly tea party has a theme:
* March 13: "Bit O'Blarney"
* April 10: "Derby Tea"
* May 8: "Blooms A'Brewin"
* June 12: "Tea With Verna"
* July 10: "Red Hat Tea"
* August 14: "Teddy Bear Tea"
* September 11: "Savannah Tea"
* October 9: "Spooky Tea"
* November 13 : "Victorian Tea"
* December 11: "Holiday High"
If the weather doesn't cooperate, the tea will be served in the Millsap Bride's Hall. The tea party tickets are $13.02 for gardens members and $16.27 for the general public. Seating is very limited, though, so make reservations early. Call 501-262-9300 or 800-366-4664.
Interested in a private tea party with 30 to 52 of your closest family members, work colleagues or friends? Give the gardens at least two weeks notice and you can be like Alice in Wonderland with your own private tea affair; call 501-262-9603.
