Mother Daughter Flower Fairy Tea

Victorian children believed the Fairy Realm held it's annual merriment and mischief in June on Midsummer's Eve. Join us for a special celebration of the fairy magic in our 2nd annual Mother/Daughter Flower Fairy Tea. After tea, look for signs of fairy revelry in a scavenger hunt around the lawn, play with bubbles, and have a tour of the house if you like. Fairy wings and elves, often in the guise of boys, are also welcome!

Please note that there are two seatings for the day. One at 11:00 and another at 1:00. There are eight tables for each time slot, so seating is limited. Tickets are $22 for a mother and 1 child and $8.00 for each additional adult or child at your table. All proceeds benefit the care and upkeep of the Dr. Best House museum.

Crafts in the Carriage House:

Create a Personal Journal

Keeping personal diaries and journals dates as far back as the Middle Ages. Throughout the 19th century scrapbooking as we know it, began to emerge. First put together by adults, scrapbooks were created as a way of organizing their collections, ranging from pressed flowers to art prints and from shells to insects.


Today, many of us keep personal journals, scrapbooks, photo albums and sketch books as a way of collecting or recording personal thoughts, experiences, and memories.

Join us in this 2 hour workshop to create a small handmade book that can be used as a garden journal, scrapbook, personal journal, photo album, or whatever your creative mind chooses.


$10.00 material fee and donation

Limit: 10 (ages 12-adult)
