Join us as we travel back in time to the Victorian Age, to an elegant country resort a short carriage ride away from the hustle and bustle of the city (which at that time extended only as far north as 14th Street). It's a proper turn-of-century tea party, with finger sandwiches, scones and fancies, in a darling garden attached to an impossible Victorian cottage overlooking modern Manhattan. Historical chef Rebecca Leigh Silverman will hand-make delectable treats from antique recipes, and give a small talk about each dish.

All guests will have access to the museum as well as garden: come early to take advantage of individual tours led by the docents of the musem. In case of rain, the event will happen indoors.

The menu:
Two types of finger sandwiches:
- Cucumber, butter, chive and Salmon Mousse
- Scones with Homemade Clotted Cream & Preserves
Lancashire cheese & onion tarts
Rhubarb & custard tarts
Victoria Sponge Cake

Activities will include:
- Victorian garden games, including Game of Graces [ https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Game_of_graces ] and Battledore and Shuttlecock [ https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battledore_and_shuttlecock ]
- Hand-drawn portraits of guests by Anastasios Taso Megaris

Dress code: 1800-1910s summer garden party, with all-white, cream and pastel tones encouraged. No modern casual wear, please - though modern cocktail summer attire is easy to accessorize with a nod to Victorian times.

About our venue:
Constructed in 1799 as a carriage house for a 23-acre estate, and converted into the Mount Vernon Hotel in 1826, this stone building sits on land originally owned by Colonel William Stephens Smith, and his wife Abigail Adams Smith, daughter of John Adams. The hotel operated until 1833, at which point the house became the home for three generations of a New York City family.
