Victorian Christmas Party and Tea

  • The Purple Iris 1954 Winchester Avenue Martinsburg, WV, 25405 (map)

Who can resist a Victorian Christmas? Travel back in time with this holiday event at the Purple Iris which will be lavishly decorated for the season. Pull traditional English Christmas crackers as you sip and savor special teas and a full afternoon tea. The Tea Lady, Judy Larkin, will get you into the proper mood to relieve the stress of the holidays and to enjoy revelry that has stood the test of time. Imagine voices singing Christmas carols and a series of hilarious Victorian games guaranteed to get the room laughing at full volume.  There will also be an opportunity to do some Christmas shopping. 

Afternoon teas are meant to be a social event, so you may be seated at a table with other guests.  This is in keeping with tea etiquette and offers you the opportunity to make new friends. (Where possible we will seat you and your guests together.)  Space is limited. Make your reservations early.  Come dressed in your finery as this is a special event.  Period costumes are encouraged.

No children under the age of six.
