Downton Abbey Afternoon Tea at Gilded Lily

“It makes me smile, the way we drink every year to what the future may bring,” says Dowager Countess, a character from the wildly popular Downton Abbey series, which ran on PBS from 2010-2015. As it turns out, the future will soon bring fans the movie version which premiers September 20. 

Gilded Lily will be celebrating the movie by hosting an afternoon tea party inspired by the British period drama on Sunday, September 15, at 3:30 pm. The high tea will highlight some of the brands of tea sold at Gilded Lily, including Harney & Sons and Simpson & Vail teas. It will also include sweets and savories and optional champagne and sherry. 

The cost is $45. Only 10 seats are available. For more information, call 816-510-2182 or visit their website. Gilded Lily is located at 612 E 135 St. in Martin City.
