Afternoon Tea in The athlone springs
“There are few hours in life more agreeable than the hour dedicated to the ceremony known as afternoon tea.” Henry James
This pause for tea became a fashionable social event. During the 1880’s upper-class and society women would change into long gowns, gloves and hats for their afternoon tea which was usually served in the drawing room between four and five o’clock.
Ladies we do not require you to be quite so formal!
