Mother’s Day Grand High Tea
Experience a very special Grand High Tea just for Mom! Sample a Mother’s Day Grand High Tea tradition at The Empress with homemade Empress Scones, decadent clotted cream and delicate lemon curd; dainty gourmet finger sandwiches such as brie and fig grilled squares, traditional cucumber sandwiches made with our own savory dressing and special bread. All these extra touches plus elegant desserts from the early Victorian Era to the turn of the 20th century. Learn and experience all the traditions common to the late 19th century and long abandoned to that bygone era, except at The Empress. Specialty tea will be freshly prepared and served with elegant Victorian Pomp and Circumstance. This event has very limited seating designed to provide a very unique experience, so call and make your reservations early at 501-374-7966. Well behaved children 6 and over welcome. A few delightful surprises will be included. $45.00 per person, reservations required. Mother’s Day Grand High Tea is on Sunday, May 10th, 2015, AT 3:00 P.M.
