Christmas tea

The Christmas Dessert Tea & Gift Bazaar at George Washington Inn has become a tradition. In the midst of the hustle and bustle of the Thanksgiving and Christmas season, take time to reflect on the joys and blessings of family and friends. What better way to enjoy time together with your loved ones than with a festive afternoon tea at George Washington Inn on Saturday, December 14. Served on the enclosed piazza overlooking the Strait of Juan de Fuca and the islands, get an inside look at the Christmas decor of the Inn and finish up your Christmas shopping with a hand-picked selection of craft vendors and a special discount in the lavender gift shop on the day of the event. Cost is only $37.00 (plus tax) per person.

The scheduled seating times for this tea are 11:00 AM, 1:30 PM and 4 PM. The maximum capacity at each seating is 32, so it is important to make your reservation as soon as possible. This event typically sells out quickly.

The amazing menu, provided by Sequim Fresh Catering, includes a delicious three-tiered assortment of holiday fare, both sweet and savory, plus your choice of tea, coffee, cocoa, or hot cider. Please note that we are unable to accommodate dietary preferences/restrictions with this menu. However, if you have a food allergy, please be sure to let us know so that we can avoid cross-contamination.

The inn’s Christmas tree is decorated with the annual collector ornaments from Mount Vernon in Virginia, making it one-of-a-kind. Lighted garland lines the grand staircase, and there’s a large nativity in the Great Room. Christmas music plays softly in the background.

It is with sadness that we share the following from our amazing caterers: “Sequim Fresh Catering would like to thank the beautiful George Washington Inn and all the wonderful customers of George Washington Inn’s Teas over the years for allowing us to be of service to you.¬† We have enjoyed the opportunity, and we are very much looking forward to this year’s 2019 Christmas Tea. However, this will be the last Tea for which we will be preparing.”

Make your reservations soon to be assured your place at the table. If you are coming with a group but making your reservations individually, please be sure to identify the key person in your group so that we can seat everyone together.

Martha Washington looks forward to welcoming you to “Mount Vernon West” for this special event!
