Vanderbilt Garden Tea
The Vanderbilt Garden Association is proud to announce that our 4th annual tea will be held on September 10, 2017 from 2pm to 4pm in the beautiful formal gardens of the Vanderbilt Mansion National Historic site in Hyde Park, NY. The event is fashioned in the spirit of the early 1900's. It will feature a selection of teas from Harney and Sons, tea sandwiches, scones, cupcakes, cookies and French macarons. The Botticelli Players will provide live music and Michael Harney from Harney & Sons will be our guest speaker. Once again, this year, the beautiful and whimsical Toucan Hats will be available at the tea for viewing and purchasing.
The event will take place under a tent in the Vanderbilt garden. (In the event of heavy rain, the event will move to the Wallace Center at the F. D. Roosevelt Presidential Library.) Parking will be at the main visitors center and there is a moderate walk to the gardens. Handicap access is available by pre-arrangement. Would you consider wearing period clothing, party garden wear or even a fancy hat? It isn't necessary but it might be fun!
The F. W. Vanderbilt Garden Association is an all volunteer group. All funds raised by the tea will be used to help fund the planting and maintenance of the gardens. After the tea, we hope many of you will stroll through our beautiful gardens.
