Dallas Arboretum Friendship Tea
The Dallas Arboretum, the nationally acclaimed display garden on the shores of White Rock Lake in East Dallas, announces its Friendship Tea menu. The Friendship Teas will take place Thursday to Sunday, January 5 to February 26, with two seatings at 11:00am and 2:00pm.
Tea service begins with a demitasse of seasonal soup. Followed by an assortment of delicious tea sandwiches and then a finale of scrumptious petit deserts. Scones with clotted cream and jam accompany the meal and each guest has a choice of tea selections.
The cost of seated tea is $38 per person and $48 for Champagne Tea for adults and children ages thirteen and older. Private teas can be arranged in another facility in the garden if a larger group would like to share this experience together. Pricing includes admission to the garden, parking and gratuity.
