Fascinators and Spring Hats
May 15 - May 22
In conjunction with Royal Wedding festivities, we will again feature the gorgeous hats of milliner Christine A. Moore, official hat maker of the Triple Crown and America's Best Racing. Try on a fascinator or two, and enjoy the experience of donning an elegant-- and in some cases, outrageous--hat. All hats will be available for purchase. Assert your individuality and show the world that southern Maine is not all L. L. Bean and baseball caps!

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.
