George Taylor House holds Mother’s Day event

George Taylor House Association wanted to celebrate those special women in the area by hosting a Mother’s Day luncheon May 7.

The event featured a light lunch, historical tea tasting, a tour and a sewing activity.

The mothers were treated to a special medley of finger sandwiches, casseroles and cheese offerings, coupled with warm squash soup.

Volunteers dressed the part for the historical portion of the event, complete with petticoats, hoops, crinolines and leggings. Mothers and their daughters were impressed with the 17th- and 18th-century interpretations of the chemise and slip.

The tea was a period assortment of Young Hyson light green, a Martha Washington chocolate shell infusion and a delightful unique Bohea smokey tea.

This was the second anniversary of the George Taylor House event, and not only was it sold out, but there was a waiting list.

Those who attended appreciated the experience and the efforts from their hosts.
