What to wear?

It’s a great excuse to wear your favorite hat or party dress, but you may want to wear shoes comfortable enough to walk the grounds and up and down stairs.


We are thrilled to welcome back The Beaute Loft and The Peacock Room! Both businesses will offer pop-up shopping at the tea. Plus, you’re invited to explore The Shop at Ford House for the perfect Mother’s Day gift!


Seating is sold by table.
