Kids and parents! Join us for tea in the garden, followed by a reading of "How to Behave at a Tea Party," by the illustrator, Heather Ross, who returns for a repeat visit to the Homestead.
Tea in the garden will include "formal tea" including muffins, scones and savory treats from Carolyn's Absolutely Fabulous Events and both kid-friendly and regular tea.
Then Heather Ross will read her book and sign copies.
Finally, games in the garden.
