Royal Afternoon Tea in Darien on May 21

Carolyn Eddie and her fabulous supporting crew return to the DCA for a Royal Themed Afternoon Tea on Friday, May 21. There is something deliciously opulent about a traditional pot of tea with fluffy scones, perfectly-cut sandwiches and almost too-good-to-eat cakes, this is the quintessential British experience. A special non-alcoholic cocktail adds to the festive atmosphere.

What better place to enjoy this traditional occasion than beautiful “Meadowlands,” our National Register of Historic Places estate; outdoor seating will be available in our stunning formal garden, weather-permitting. Come let your regal side shine, tiaras optional, this royal themed event will make you feel like the Queen.

An attractive boxed take-home option is also available, with pick-up from the DCA. This is a great idea for those who may wish to create their own afternoon tea party at home, or maybe, a lovely gift idea for a loved one.

Two options on Friday May 21:

  1. 1)   Seatings at the DCA from 11:30am to 1:30pm (Choose your seating time when you register online.)
    DCA members $40
