Get in the Christmas mood at the Midway Museum, 550 N. Coastal Highway, between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. Saturday for the 56th “English Style Tea Party.”
The teas are the museum’s pre-Christmas tradition and are reminiscent of the Colonial period, when English customs were still prevalent in Coastal Georgia.
The museum recreates life as it would have been lived in a typical planter’s cottage between the 1750s and 1870s. During the holidays, the museum is decorated with Colonial-style Christmas decorations, and many staff members wear period costumes.
“We are very grateful to be serving four flavors of fresh-brewed leaf tea from our local Hale’s Tea Company delicious teas,” said Diane Kroell, the museum’s executive director. “Our Christmas teas are a fun way to experience the living history of our coastal region. We would love to see you.”
A limited number of tickets are available for $15 for adults and $5 for children. This includes hot tea, tea sandwiches and other tea time treats, along with a tour of the house decorated for a Williamsburg-style Christmas.
Reservations are required. Call 912-884-5837 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
