You don’t have to be crazy about hats, tea or gardening to enjoy the happenings at the Plymouth Historical Museum. But on Sunday, April 15, they’ll help.
That’s when the Plymouth Historical Museum will present its annual Mad Hatter Tea, where ladies wear their craziest hats and all present can learn the basics of gardening. Master Gardener Sue Paulin will present ”Contain Yourself: Container Gardening Basics.”
Sue’s presentation will follow a Victorian-style tea complete with scones, tea sandwiches, and other fare, catered by Fancy Food Catering. The tea that will be served is the Museum’s own signature blend, “Mary’s Blend,” a tantalizing cherry and almond black tea in honor of Mary Todd Lincoln. This tea is also available for purchase in the Museum’s store.
Wear you craziest hat and win a prize! The Tea begins at 2 p.m. on Sunday, April 14.
Tickets for the Mourning Tea are $20 for Friends of the Plymouth Historical Museum members and $25 for non-members can be purchased at the Plymouth Historical Museum during open hours or below using PayPal. Ticket holders who come early that day are also invited to enjoy touring the Museum’s special exhibit “Ration Stamps and Bombers: WWII at Home.” Tickets go up $5 after April 6.
The museum invites the public to arrive at 1 p.m. and tour the special exhibit “Ration Stamps & Bombers: WWII at Home.” The exhibition showcases how the lives of people in Plymouth and the Detroit area were affected by World War II.
