An English tradition dating back hundreds of years will come to life at Titanic Museum Attraction’s Princess Tea Party. The English began drinking tea in the late 1650s, but with the high costs involved, it was normally a drink reserved almost exclusively for the very wealthy. But, on Sept. 24, all princesses will enjoy an “afternoon tea” during the Princess Tea Party.
Each princess will experience an afternoon tea very much the way First Class passengers aboard RMS Titanic did. Maids played an important role in serving tea on board the ship and they will be on hand to serve guests and teach them proper etiquette, table settings and serving skills.
First Class Maid Jamie will also be teaching mini-manner lessons during this time-honored ritual in gracious living. Guests will be served classic finger sandwiches and cookies and will be given a Titanic fun patch to commemorate their participation in this special event.
Once the princesses have finished their afternoon tea they will be given a tour of the Titanic Museum. The museum, which has already been named one of the Smoky Mountain Region’s top “must-see”
The Princess Tea Party is open to children, ages 5-15 and will be held on Saturday, September 24. The cost is $22 per child and $25 per adult (this includes admission into the Titanic Museum and the Tea Party). Seating for the party will be every hour, starting at 9 a.m., with the last seating at 6 p.m. Space for this signature event is limited and reservations are required. Please call 800-381-7670 to make reservations. For more information, visit www.TitanicPigeonForge.com.
