It's the Season of Special Events
High Tea & Hats
Join us for a formal high tea and trunk show featuring exquisite hats created by NYC milliner Christine A. Moore, the official hat maker for The Breeder's Cup and America's Best Racing. Ms. Moore's hats have been featured at the Kentucky Derby and in elite fashion magazines. NBC calls her the "hat maker for the Triple Crown." Enjoy a four-course high tea and meet Ms. Moore, who will share insights about her passion for beautiful hats and the millinery art. Tickets are $45. Please call 207-803-8111 for more information.

British Tea Times
Traditional tea break at 11:00 a.m. that includes tea and typically a scone, biscuits or muffin.
Typically at 4:00 or 5:00 p.m. (dinner in Britain and the continent is usually not before 7:30 p.m.). It is a leisurely affair, conducive to chatting, sipping
and sampling finger sandwiches, scones, macaroons and other treats.
It may be a surprise to learn that high tea originated with the working classes, who worked through what we consider
“lunch hour”. High tea would be served at home after the workday at a table and now often includes soup
in addition to sweets and fruit.
We are also high on Special Events. Just ask.
We have a lot of great ideas to make your event extra - memorable.
