Christmas Tea served Dec. 10
A Christmas Tea at Collins House, 505 Eighth Street, is held in conjunction with the Holiday Homes tour from 1-4 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 10. However, one need not have a ticket from the homes tour to attend the free tea. The tea is sponsored by the Baldwin Community Arts Council.
The tea will feature chocolate goodies, beverages, festive table settings and musical entertainment.
Tables will be decorated in various settings by: Sandy Cardens, whose table will be a "Winter Wonderland;" Ruth Dickinson, whose table will be decorated with Denise Harvey enamel ware; Ruth Ann Nutt, who will use her formal china; Georgiana Monniger, who will decorate with her Desert Rose pattern; and Alice Ann Callahan-Russell, who will use Danish dishes.
Solomons Antique Gallery and Discoveries also will have a display at the tea.
Musical entertainment will be provided by the Chansonettes from Baldwin Junior High School beginning at 2:30 p.m.
"It should be real pretty," said Dickinson, an organizer of the event.
Dickinson especially wants people to know that the tea is free.
"A lot of people think they need to have a ticket to the homes tour, but they don't," she said. "The tea is the art council's way of saying thank you to the community for all its support."
