Christ Church Christmas Carol Tea Party
'The walls and ceiling were so hung with living green, that it looked a perfect grove, from every part of which, bright gleaming berries glistened. The crisp leaves of holly, mistletoe, and ivy reflected back the light, as if so many little mirrors had been scattered there...Heaped up on the floor, to form a kind of throne, were turkeys, geese, game, poultry brawn, great joints of meat, suckling pigs, long wreaths of sausages, mince-pies, plum-puddings, barrels of oysters, red hot chestnuts, cherry-cheeked apples, juicy oranges, luscious pears, immense twelfth-cakes, and seething bowls of punch, that made the chamber dim with their delicious steam.' A Christmas Carol, Charles Dickens
Celebrate the festive season with an exclusive afternoon tea inspired by Dickens's popular tale A Christmas Carol.
