We host Victorian teas for residents and businesses on Long Island and want to offer this successful service to you. Ladies dressed as if they stepped out of a Victorian painting will interact with guests speaking in the vernacular and of subject matters of the time. These Ladies will sing Victorian songs, play Victorian parlor games, hand out prizes, read period poetry, gossip, bicker, and engage in a fun historically accurately display that will be remembered as a unique experience and will be talked about for years to come.
