Chilly weather is already here—and nothing sets the mood like the annual Holiday English Tea and Open House at the Houston Museum for Decorative Arts.
This year, the Houston is partnering with Tea M’Lady to co-host the event, a fundraiser for the unique Houston Museum.
“Attending a tea at the Houston has always been a delicious experience,” said Marilyn Hoke, Houston Museum board member. “But with our new partnership with Tea M’ Lady, we will be treated to an added authenticity. ‘Proper’ English tea items will be featured.”
Delicacies will include trifle, scones, tiny sandwiches, tarts, cheese straws, petit fours and other specialties—and of course, tea, properly served.
Those taking tea this year can also enjoy the current Houston Museum exhibit, “The Allure of Tea.”
Some of Annie Houston’s more memorable pieces have been unwrapped and displayed along with quotes of famous tea drinkers. The exhibit will run throughout the cooler months.
What better time than during the busy holidays to take a moment to enjoy and relax?
