Our museum elves have been hard at work preparing Butterfield Cottage for the winter holidays and the enjoyment of our guests at Gingerbread Tea. Trees, wreaths and pine garlands decorate every room of Seaside’s very own authentic Victorian cottage.
Lovers, families and friends having been enjoying Gingerbread Tea at the Butterfield Cottage every holiday season for more than thirty years. Sharing a cozy relaxing afternoon while enjoying holiday music and snack has become THE holiday tradition for many residents as well as visitors returning from far and wide.
Homemade gingerbread cake, baked by our museum “grandmothers” is served with fresh whipped cream along with a choice of hot tea, cocoa or hot spiced cider. Children can have a homemade old-fashioned gingerbread men cookie. And candy canes for all!
What is a tea party without music? Shirley Yates will be singing and playing keyboard on November 30 and December 7th. The North Coast Ukulele Strummers will play and sing on December 14 while the Seaside Strummers will entertain on December 21st.
Admission is $5 per person. Tickets for the annual holiday raffle are also available at each tea or at the Museum for $1 each or 6 for $5. A colorful underwater-theme quilted collage wall hanging, local gift certificates and a large decorated poinsettia from Mimi’s Florist are among the prizes. Winning tickets will be pulled at 4pm on December 21st.
