Afternoon Tea at the Mary Stegmaier Mansion
Today a friend and I attended the Kitty Kit-Tea at the Mary Stegmaier Mansion in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania. The event was a fundraiser for a local cat rescue and seemed to be a great success. The event sold out very quickly, so I was lucky to get two tickets when it was announced.
This was the first time I had been to the mansion. It is typically used as a wedding facility, but special events are held throughout the year. The first floor solarium was the most striking part of the venue.
After having some cheese and vegetables downstairs, we were taken upstairs to be seated in the dining room. It is a gorgeous space and would make a lovely wedding venue.
We were served scones with cream, butter, and jam, then a strawberry salad. Our tea sandwiches were adorable. I could see myself making the cucumber cat sandwich for my nephew (if I could get him to eat cucumbers).
We were served parfaits in mason jars for dessert. I didn't win any of the raffle prizes, although I was hoping for the pet stroller for my dog, Gertie. It was a fun afternoon spent in a beautiful setting. How did you spend your Sunday afternoon?
