Teddy Bear Tea at the Mount Vernon Hotel Museum & Garden this Sunday
Mon Dec 28
Afternoon tea is one of our favorite rituals, and it seems that sophisticated the folks at the Mount Vernon Hotel Museum & Garden agree. On Sunday, January 3, your family can join them for a Teddy Bear Tea (stuffed toys of all species are encouraged to attend), where a costumed actress portraying the hotel proprietor's daughter, Sara Woodhull, will tell little ones about the good old days circa 1830. Fruit tea and cookies will be served, though Pooh bears and Paddingtons may want to bring their own honey and marmalade, just to be sure. $10, children ages 3 to 6 $5; reservations recommended.
