2016 Victorian High Tea

One of the most popular items at the Victorian High Tea besides the fabulous raffle prizes has been the Best Hat and Best Table Contests which started in 2010.

Both events are conducted as “People’s Choice” and the Tea guests take their responsibility as judges quite seriously, touring all the tables and listening carefully as each Hat Lady gives her name and reason for choosing to wear a particular chapeau.
