Valentine’s day may be a celebration of romance, but a true love in a teacup, a tray full of treats sprinkled with a bit of Carmel history will make for a sweetheart of a Saturday for parents and children aged 5 to 11, on February 11 from 11 am to 12:30 pm. The Carmel Clay Historical Society has paired with the Simply Sweet Shoppe to host a special a Valentine’s Day Tea featuring tea, of course, a light lunch of finger sandwiches and delicious desserts.
“We are planning a yummy kid-friendly tea, lunch and art project,” said Katherine Dill, Executive Director of the CCHS. “We’ll make some really neat 3-D Valentine cards similar to the antique cards we have in our collection at the museum.”
Dill plans bring the those ornate cards that date back to the Victorian era to display, as well as several additional cards on loan from Bob Brown and Fred Swift. The tea party costs $15 for adults, $10 for the first child and $7 for additional children. Make reservations by contacting Katherine at the CCHS, 317-846-7117.
