Photos From Our Mother’s Day Victorian Lunch

Monday, May 13, 2013
Due to heavy rains in the days before the event,  the Mother’s Day Victorian Lunch could not be held on the lawn of the Davis Mansion as originally planned. But, the lunch did go on! It was moved indoors to Barn 3, a site rental facility just behind the cattle pens. 


  A magnificent buffet of light bites took guests on a journey from the savory to the sweet in this traditional low tea, a small meal, typically taken in the mid-afternoon.

The array of edibles was coupled with hot Steep Show Teas (available in GRPH Gift Shop), brewed fresh for the tea etiquette lesson presented by park interpreter, Anna Wysuph.
Thank you to all of our Mother’s Day guests who attended this event!
