Friends of Long Hill Tea

I recently attended the Wadsworth Mansion at Long Hill Estate in Middletown, Connecticut as a vendor for a lovely event. Guests were treated to a three course tea service in the East and West ballrooms of the Mansion, where the original owners of the estate, Clarence and Katharine Wadsworth hosted lavish parties in the early 1900's. One of the highlights of the event, in addition to the beautiful, individually decorated tables, were the extravagant hats sported by most of the guests!
