Enjoy a Warm Cup of Tea at This Event Honoring Suffragette History

The Charms of Leffingwell is an antique gallery and tea room located in the historic Mathews House (1905). The teas, which will begin at 11 AM on Friday, June 1 and Saturday, June 2, will be served by the Smith family, who owns and operates Charms of Leffingwell.

The staff of Manatee Village will open the tea with a short talk about the role that tea rooms played in the Women’s Suffrage Movement. Table decorations will include trivia cards about the history of tea and suffragette history.

Dress-up is encouraged. There will be a best hat contest with prizes. These teas will include freshly brewed hot tea of your choice (over 20 types to choose from!), homemade scones, clotted cream, pastries, and savories.
