Charms of Leffingwell is an antiques gallery and tea room located in the historic Mathews House (1905). The teas, which will take place from 1:00-3:00pm on Friday, August 25 and Saturday, August 26, will be served by the Smith family, who owns and operates Charms of Leffingwell.

The staff of Manatee Village will open the tea with a short talk about the history of afternoon tea in England, the popularization of afternoon tea by Queen Victoria, and tea traditions in Florida. There will also be a brief discussion of historic preservation, the history of the Mathews House, and the process of restoring it into the tea room it is today. Table decorations will include trivia cards about the history of tea.

Dress-up is encouraged. There will be a best hat contest with a prize from Walk Bradenton.

These afternoon teas will include freshly brewed hot tea of your choice (over 20 types to chose from!), homemade scones, Devonshire cream, pastries, and savories.

This is a ticketed event with limited space.
