Red, White, And Blue Afternoon Tea

History shows that Anna, the seventh Duchess of Bedford first introduced after noon tea in 1840. Because lunch was served at noon and dinner was served at 8 p.m., the duchess decided to create a small scheduled snack everyday, where she would be able to eat a small amount of food that would last her up until dinner time. After a while the duchess began to invite her friends for a bit of tea, bread and butter, cakes and gossip. By the late 1800's afternoon tea became a fashionable social event that consisted of upper class and society women throughout England. Kean University's Liberty hall strives to keep traditions like these alive.


On May 9th, 2012 Liberty Hall will be hosting an afternoon tea event. From 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. guests will have the opportunity to sip tea, eat finger sandwiches and desserts. Guests will enjoy the enticing view of the formal English garden from the comfort of the glass-enclosed porch. After the afternoon tea, guests will be provided with a tour of Liberty Hall. The program fee is $40.00 per person.
