I’ve found a very nice location – the only catch is, it costs. As all the best locations do, unfortunately!
There are two different historic properties at the “This is the Place Heritage Park” under $300, providing we use the home between 9am and 3pm. (The price skyrockets after that, but if there is a) enough interest b) a costume sympathizer on staff I could get to knock down the price, we’re stuck with that time.
If there is enough interest, I’ll contact them and get some more information, perhaps even see if I can get them to knock down the price a bit. But that still leaves the question – would you be willing to cough up $20 to have a costumed tea in a beautifully restored historic home? (Provided you lived on the Wasatch Front and/or would make a special trip to attend.
The $20 estimate is based on 15-person attendance, and if it ends up happening, I would need people to pay for “tickets” up front. As with the last Tea, I’m pretty sure it’ll be potluck, to reduce over all cost. (If there is enough interest in a catered affair, there are some pretty amazing ‘preferred’ caterers so I guess the second question would be – would you be willing to cough up another $10-20 for a professionally catered affair?)
Soooooooo……..let me know, OK?……………….And spread the word ‘round – let’s see if we can make this happen!
p.s. They have goats there. Just sayin’.
