So, by now everyone knows that Crafted is THE place to go for the most delicious handcrafted cocktails and snacks. But did you also know they do these marvelous events all of the time? The last one I went to was a tea party. And it was the coolest one I’ve ever been to.
Erika Thompson, owner of Crafted teamed up with Allison Gahrmann of the White Rose Manor in Lincolnton to put together this amazing event.
We bought our tickets online and when we arrived she ushered us all into the private party room which was decorated lovingly to be transformed into a Victorian tea room. Allison brought her vast collection of delicate teacups made out of bone china for us to sip from.
Allison then gave us a demonstration about tea etiquette and history and even brought some hats that she’s helped to rescue and remake. She asked these adorable little girls to model a couple of her favorites. She then let us know that she and her daughter collaborated to blend some new tea flavors, some with a theme of Christmas and other with an Alice in Wonderland theme! We all begged for an Alice in Wonderland themed Tea Party at Crafted next, so be on the watch for that!
The food was plentiful and delish! We had every type of finger food you could imagine and then some!
