A Downton Abbey Tea at The Whitney

Are you as anxious as I am for the long-awaited Downton Abbey movie to arrive in theaters on September 20th?

Knowing the huge popularity of Downton Abbey I asked if we could do a Downton Abbey tea at The Whitney.  To my delight the answer was yes.  This is the first special event tea I'll be involved in the planning phase since I became the tea director, so I'm very excited about it.

Since several other events are already on the schedule for this month and going into September, the Downton Abbey tea won't be scheduled until tentatively, Saturday, October 5th.   For local readers:  Please do not call The Whitney yet.  You won't be able to make a reservation until it goes up on the website sometime in September, so watch their website.  This post is just a 'heads-up.'

Below is the flier I created: [click on to enlarge for reading]

Since period dress is suggested, I've been working on my outfit.  My hubby bought me the teal velour outfit [pictured below] last Christmas, and I've been waiting for just the right occasion to wear it.  I think the Downton Abbey tea will be the perfect opportunity!

My earrings, fan, and hair piece [all ordered from Amazon] have arrived in the mail.  Now I only need to find T-strapped shoes and I'll be all set.

The earrings are totally out of character for me - I'm not a glitzy person - but they're totally in character for the 1920's.

I'll soon be sharing another tea that I'm busy coordinating for my church on September 7th.


  1. I hope tearooms all around the country will be inspired to do a Downton Abbey themed tea since the movie is coming out.

  2. Oh my, you are going to be a stunner in that gorgeous outfit! I'll bet this tea will sell out quickly too. A friend and I are planning to go see the movie, but I haven't heard of any Downton Abbey-themed teas locally. (Alas!)

  3. Phyllis, thanks so much for the heads up about this Downton Abbey Tea. Adding to our list of Downton Abbey Teas now. And I second Angela's comments - those earrings are so fun!
