Gingerbread Tea at Butterfield Cottage (Canceled)
December 5, 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 1:00pm on Saturday, repeating until December 19, 2020
(This annual event has been canceled due to COVID-19. From Nov. 28 through the end of 2020, visit the museum’s Facebook page for a little holiday spirit featuring highlights of past Gingerbread Teas and specially-recorded music from Ukelele strummers Cathey and Thomas Ryan.)
The museum elves have been hard at work preparing Butterfield Cottage for the winter holidays and the enjoyment of our guests at Gingerbread Tea. Trees, wreaths and pine garlands decorate every room of Seaside’s very own authentic Victorian cottage. Sharing a cozy relaxing afternoon while enjoying holiday music and snack has become a holiday tradition for many residents as well as visitors returning from far and wide. Homemade gingerbread cake, baked by our museum “grandmothers” is served with fresh whipped cream along with a choice of hot tea, cocoa or hot spiced cider. Children can have a homemade old-fashioned gingerbread men cookie. And candy canes for all!
Admission is $5 per person. Tickets for the annual holiday raffle are also available at each tea or at the Museum for $1 each or 6 for $5.
Gingerbread Tea will be held each Saturday from 1 to 4 pm on November 28 and December 5, 12, and 19.
