HCF Hosts Victorian Tea Party for Girl Scouts May 11, May 18 | Arts & Culture
Girl Scouts are invited to take a step back in time with Historic Columbia Foundation at the annual Victorian Ladies Tea Party held at Seibels House, Columbia’s oldest remaining home, on Saturdays May 11 and May 18.
Girl Scouts will learn about Victorian customs like calling cards and the language of the fan as well as participate in Victorian-inspired crafts, including making herb sachets and paper dolls. The highlight of the day will be the Victorian tea where girls will learn table manners and etiquette.
“The Victorian Tea Party is a wonderful opportunity for girls to learn about etiquette, traditions and customs from the late 19th century. In addition to the tea party, girls will play games and make crafts similar to those in the Victorian Era,” said James Quint, Historic Columbia’s education coordinator.
This event is offered from 10 am to noon or 12:30 to 2:30 pm on both Saturday, May 11 and Saturday, May 18 at Seibels House & Gardens. Tickets are $8 per scout and $5 for adults and can be purchased by emailing email@example.com or by calling 803.252.1770 ext. 36. Reservations are required. Group reservations are welcome.
