What to wear: You aren’t required to wear a costume, but it’s always more fun! Our theme is 19th century, so anything from 1800-1900 would be appropriate. That covers Regency, Dickens, Victorian, American Civil War, Early Bustle, Natural Form, Late bustle, and Belle Epoch!!! So much to choose from! Please avoid wearing any hoops (except a tiny one), as the tea room isn’t large enough to accommodate them.
