The English-Speaking Union, Kansas City Branch, cordially invites you to a special English tea celebrating HRH Queen Elizabeth IIís Platinum Jubilee and 96th birthday.
In 2022, Her Majesty The Queen, who has held the record for the longest reign since 2015, will become the first British Monarch to celebrate a Platinum Jubilee after 70 years of service.
This will be quite a special milestone and a celebration you will not want to miss.
This Platinum Jubilee Tea Party will be held at Anna Marieís Teas in Liberty, Mo., in a stately 3-story, 5,000 square foot home built in 1913. The house boasts Frank Lloyd Wright details--oak trim, 3 fireplaces and large open spaces. Its large wraparound porch and period American, French and English antique furnishings create the perfect setting for tea parties--served on a special collection of china and silver.
The tea will include a variety of tea sandwiches, sweets, Brenda's signature scones, mock Devonshire cream, fine fruit butter or fruit jams and premium tea. Our tea will include a special champagne toast to HRH Queen Elizabeth IIís 96th birthday. We will again have our popular Trivia Quiz as well as some special door prizes.
Brenda Hedrick, the owner and proprietress of Anna Marieís Teas proudly proclaims, "This is not just any tea party--our tea experiences are delightfully extravagant!"
We welcome all guests to wear their favorite hat or fascinator. Men are welcome to wear their favorite bowler or top hat. Everyone who attends wearing a hat will receive a gift. Of course, hats are optional and everyone is welcome, hat or no hat.
