Welcome to Lady Margaret's Victorian Tea Time
Have teapot will travel with style and grace....

" Mystery Tea Parties "

" But indeed I would rather have nothing but tea. "
Jane Austen ~ Mansfield Park

 " A Tea Party to bring back the romantic days of YesterYear "

Lady Margaret's business of bringing glamour, grace and the elegance of the Victorian era to life began with simple tea parties at home with friends.  The idea of enjoying a cup of tea and a cucumber sandwich on a warm, sunny afternoon was an experience that could be shared with many women.  Inspired by her love of a different time, Lady Margaret began to research traditions of etiquette and afternoon tea during the time of Queen Victoria's reign.  Discovering a rich history of tea and combining the knowledge with a deep love of fine Victorian dress, made Lady Margaret realize that a true tea party is never complete unless presented by a proper Victorian hostess.
