Did you ever get weary of the constant barrage of today?s technology – smart phones, giant TV?s, computers, 24/7 news, even fake news? Perhaps you?ve yearned for a quiet afternoon in a setting of gentile days gone by. Gentler times. Romantic times. A time when the arts prospered. When the day provided for afternoon tea…..to discuss fashion, social ideas, culture and perhaps even courtships.

Have you ever wondered what? a day like that may be like? Perhaps a day in the Victorian era? What was social life and a courtship like back then? We have that opportunity available for you to experience — ?Journey back with us — ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? at ?the Power of Flowers Victorian Tea.
