Join the British beau monde, channel your inner duchess, and practice le bon ton (good manners) as you converse and celebrate mother-daughter relationships and familial love. On May 1, 2022, Downtown Cookies® is offering a Mother’s Day Tea to honor the special relationships between mothers, daughters, grandmothers, aunts, and ladies who embody motherhood. Owner Morgan Falasca learned to bake at her mother’s side, then perfected the cookie recipes, creating new ones of her own, and opened Downtown Cookies®.
In anticipation of Mother’s Day, Downtown Cookies® will offer two seatings for a pre-or post-dinner party tea, complete with vintage tableware, imported Irish, English, and Scottish teas, and a divine section of delectable desserts featuring the finest ingredients, all lovingly baked by Downtown Cookies®. Each seating will begin with a British etiquette course by the owners of the English Gardener. It’s a recipe for an unforgettable Mother’s Day!
Located on Kings Highway in Haddonfield, Downtown Cookies® offers multiple “monster-sized” cookies, biscotti, cookie cakes, dough-to-go, and locally-sourced milk, coffee & tea. Each cookie is inspired by and named for someone special to the family. Also available: event favors, dozen or two-dozen platters, and display stands to showcase the beautiful (and delicious) cookies!
Visuals to expect at the Mother’s Day Tea Sunday:
- Pinkies raised! An official British etiquette course
- A variety of delectable desserts
- Freshly brewed teas from England, Ireland, and Scotland
- Vintage tea sets and elegant tabletop decor
- Ladies bedecked in beautiful hats and festive finery
- Smiling service, gorgeous cookies, and delicious treats; conviviality, and community.
There is still seating available for the 6:00 pm time slot, but I suspect that will go fast. The cost is $30 per person and reservations are required. Click here for more details and to book.
