Victorian and Dolly Plus Me Tea was Huge Success

February 10, 2024 – a record number joined us as the Mt. Sterling Friends of the Library host their Annual Victorian Tea. The event ran from 2-4 p.m. and was held at the First United Methodist Church, located at 110 S. London St., Mt. Sterling, Ohio.

NEW this year, the FOL added a Bring your own Dolly for tea. Included was live saxophone music, tableside tea service, photo booth, a lovely assortment of cookies and a personal boxed snack of tea sandwiches, fruit, sliver of scone, and a chocolate.  As always, there was an assortment of teas. In addition to the Victorian Tea boutique, a doll shop was added this year, with the bookmark making station in between the two spaces. Ticket prices remained the same at $10 per adult and $5 per child. Tables of 6 to 8 seats were available to reserve in advance with a positive RSVP for all seats. Many wore their best version of Victorian era styles and hats and the spirit of the afternoon was very lively with lots of door prize drawings and a hugely successful silent auction. All funds raised by the Mt. Sterling Friends of the Library go towards materials, supplies, equipment, programs, events, and upgrades for the library.
